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?
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!
