John Oliver gets his own show
November 16 , 2013
John Oliver got his own show on HBO, which sounds quite like the Daily Show.
It's expected to debut next year and air on Sunday nights. Reports suggest that HBO wasn't looking for a new show but Oliver's stint as Jon Stewarts replacement sold the executives.
Oliver, jokingly said Stewart has taught him everything so it would be his fault if he fails in the future.
CNN was also interested in getting Oliver on board but HBO ended up winning.
