    For those that don't know, jon stewart went to the middle east to direct a movie for 8 weeks, leaving his long time correspondent John Oliver to host. jon stewart has always had a large following from the stoned slackers and leftist but he has been suffering without bush . i for one have grown a bit tired of him and haven't watched for 2 years. Glad he's on a break because i think john oliver was funny as hell and did a great job

    Bill O;Reilly was on Daily Show and point blank asked Jon if he was quitting and he said yes. He made it sound like it was more than just this sabbatical. :dontknow:

    i thought his monologue was strong and better than stewarts usual. i agree that after it sort of slowed down, but that had more to do with the format of the show. after the monologue, the staff hazes him, and then there is the interview. One thing that annoys me about stewart interviews is that he constantly giggles.


    anyways poll, pull, pole added
