The Daily Show is starting to become a launchpad for other shows.

I don't get why people find John Oliver funny. I think he, as well as pretty much all of Jon's corespondents, are terrible.

It was very funny. But it really was just The Daily Show with swearing and without commercials. Still, he's good at the job and I'll watch it every week.

I was a bit disappointed by the first episode myself. If you pay attention to the news daily, then the show seems like a full on re-run. This seems to be targeted at folks that cannot check in on the news daily, and want exactly what the title states...."Last Week Tonight"

Also, the comparison to Real Time is a pretty far stretch IMO. The mass satire approach by John Oliver's show leaves alot to be desired if your after conversation regarding each topic.

I dunno...I am a john Oliver fan, but I think he misses what I hoped the show was going to be.

It was their first show. It'll be refined and change over time. I've been watching Real Time since it started on HBO, and that show has changed quite a bit over the last 10 years.

I did like that it's longer than TDS, since there are no commercials. I also liked that it's not censored. The jokes they'll be able to get away with on HBO compared to Comedy Central should help to make it something different.

I didn't like it as much as I thought I would. A little too political and a little too dirty for the sake of being dirty IMO. Hopefully it will catch it's stride.

In other news, Last Week Tonight's last episode melted the FCC servers. Excellent episode too.

Anybody know if there was an episode last night, would have been #8, one after Steven Hawking's visit.
