Farewell, Jon Stewart: The Last ‘Daily Show’
Dr. Zaius   |  

Jon Stewart Image

I grew up in Brooklyn, New York, in a family that ritualistically watched ABC’s World News Tonight with Peter Jennings. I loved history and journalism, and ended up teaching high school level history. The calming, straight forward, no nonsense, nonpartisan news days have long since passed. With the advent and expansion of cable news, and the big money filing in, it’s incredibly difficult to find real, genuine news. As channels like Fox News went over-the-top conservative, stations like MSNBC had to hit back equally to the left. 16 years ago a phoenix rose over the garbage heap of the phony “real” news and gave us the greatest fake news show ever. 16 years after taking over for Craig Kilborn, Jon Stewart left The Daily Show last night, in perfect circumstances… as the Republicans were holding their first Presidential debates on Fox News.

‘Last Week Tonight With John Oliver’ Gets Two More Seasons From HBO
The Movie God   |  

Last Week Tonight with John Oliver

If you were hoping that John Oliver would depart his new gig at HBO and return to Comedy Central’s The Daily Show to replace Jon Stewart as the new host when he leaves later this year, I’m afraid it’s not to be.

HBO has locked up Oliver and his Last Week Tonight with John Oliver for not just one but two additional seasons, season three and season four, which will see it running through at least 2017.

NBC Cancels Cult Favorite Comedy ‘Community’ After 5 Glorious Low-Rated Seasons
BAADASSSSS!   |  

Community

It looks like the doors of Greendale Community College are closing forever.

Today any hope for intelligent, innovative comedy finding a home at NBC was almost permanently nuked like a microwaved gremlin as the network has announced the long-dreaded yet tragically inevitable cancellation of the cult favorite comedy series Community only a few weeks after the conclusion of its fifth season.

John Oliver To Leave ‘The Daily Show’ For New HBO Comedy Series
The Movie God   |  

John Oliver Hosting The Daily Show

Popular writer and correspondent for The Daily Show with John Stewart on Comedy Central, John Oliver, has signed a deal to star in a new weekly topical comedy series on HBO.

This of course means that Oliver’s almost eight-year run on The Daily Show—which resulted in six Primetime Emmy Award nominations (winning three of them), five Writers Guild of America Award nominations (winning one of them), and a very successful (as you can tell) stint filling in as host this past summer when Stewart stepped away to make his feature directorial debut, Rosewater—will be coming to an end.

If you’re one of those people who feel lost whenever Jon Stewart‘s Comedy Central news show The Daily Show goes on break for a couple of weeks, get ready for a much lengthier break…sort of.

It’s being reported that Stewart will be taking the summer off from hosting the show—about twelve weeks when it’s all said and done—but it won’t be a vacation spent lounging around on a tropical island somewhere. Stewart is taking the time off to make his debut as a feature film director on a movie titled Rosewater.

‘The Daily Show’ Revisits The Unforgivable ‘Saving Private Ryan’ & ‘Goodfellas’ Oscar Screwjobs
The Movie God   |  

While discussing the London riots on The Daily Show, host Jon Stewart and senior European correspondent John Oliver took a bit of a detour.

After mentioning how horrible the riots are and how bad European wars are in general, Oliver notes that some good has come of them as well, such as the various movies about them including Saving Private Ryan.

After declaring Ryan a Best Picture Oscar winner, Stewart corrects Oliver and informs him that Shakespeare In Love was in fact the winner that year. This hilariously sets off the two on a mini–tirade about the atrocity that not only the Saving Private Ryan upset was, but also the loss of Martin Scorsese’s Goodfellas to Kevin Costner’s Dances With Wolves.

Check out the video below now.
