Jon Stewart Leaving The Daily Show To Direct A Movie!!

jon stewart daily show jon oliver break hiatus summer direct movie script written

If Jon Stewart is your favorite part of The Daily Show, we probably wouldn't recommend watching this summer!

On the other hand, if Jon Oliver is your favorite part of The Daily Show, might we suggest watching this summer?

LOLz!

Jon Stewart is leaving his desk for TWELVE WEEKS (eight weeks of new episodes) and letting Jon Oliver take over the show for him while he goes and directs a movie!

What movie is more important than the fake news? An adaptation of BBC journalist Maziar Bahari's memoir! Jon's flick will be called Rosewater, while the memoir was titled Then They Came for Me: A Family’s Story of Love, Captivity and Survival, which we agree is waaaaaay too long for a movie poster! Ha!

In the end, though, we can only wish Jon luck — and thank him for replacing himself with another Jon so the change won't feel so abrupt!

Hurry back, though!

    Not a very talented guy, hes a guy with dozens of failed TV shows then finally he found something that worked- stealing Craig Kilborne's act.

    That's going to be crazy. It's the best show on TV and Oliver is amazing, so I'm sure it will work out just fine.

    He's not leaving, he's just taking a break. Facts Perez FACTS.
