The Daily Show: with Jon

Is John Oliver taking over Daily Show?
What up Dacetacular Fanboy Anonymous Nation?!? Chris "The Dace Man" Dace back in the Dace-sphere and dropping a review on your nerdy asses. As some of you may or may not know John Oliver has recently assumed the hosting duties of The Daily Show on Comedy Central. Jon Stewart has taken a hiatus from the show after nearly 15 years of being the mainstay and Emmy machine that he is. Jon Oliver will host the hit fake news show for eight out of the twelve week hiatus Stewart has been on.

Now, this of course leads to a lot of speculation about the future of The Daily Show. With Stewart itching to get behind the camera and back on the big screen, are we seeing the end of an era for Comedy Central?

Both Oliver and Stewart keep down playing the possibilities of Stewart leaving The Daily Show permanently. Oliver has even joked with guest stating "The last time a British man said he was staying for a little bit that didn't go over very well." So even though the speculation can keep going back and forth on which John will be running the show after the filming of Rosewater is completed, how is John Oliver doing at the helm of Comedy Central's juggernaut? Many reports have been pouring in that John Oliver has been on par with John Stewart ratings. Considering the monumental task that was ahead of Oliver it is amazing to see he's rolling with the big dogs.

Jon Stewart's retirement
Being British and a different comedy style of Jon Stewart he was essentially a polar opposite of the typical Daily Show vibe. Not to mention the core demographic of the show happens to be the most critical when it comes to change in their favorite product. Don't believe me? Go and read most of the articles here on Fanboys Anonymous, we are The Daily Show demographic. So in this bloggers opinion, John Oliver has been phenomenal and if it were time for Jon Stewart, my primary source of news to step down and pursue other areas....I would be content with the crowning of Fake News King on Comedy central. He has quick wit and recovers on the fly when mistakes or odd ball scenarios occur. Plus he has good chemistry with all guests that have appeared thus far on the show. John Oliver has the charismatic drive to be the lead guy. Granted Colbert obviously would chomp at the bit for that sweet 11PM EST time slot but I think these 8 weeks is a test if Oliver can stand on his own and not get the Team CoCo treatment...and folks....from what I have witness thus far....Oliver's got the stuff. So Fanboys and girls sound off! Tell me and the rest of us what you think of Oliver's hosting capabilities.

As always check back regularly to see what Chris "The Dace Man" Dace is looking at, and no not just porn, as well as all other bloggers here at Fanboys Anonymous. So for The Few, The Proud, and of course The Dacetacular, grab a beer, or in this case your moment of Zen, and check out what's going on here in the Dace-Sphere. See ya next time!
