John Oliver ended his hosting duties on The Daily Show last week and he has shown that he wasn’t just an adequate replacement, but a very good one. When it was announced that Oliver would be filling in for Jon Stewart over the summer I questioned whether they should have rotated the host with each correspondent taking a turn behind the desk. Instead they went with just John Oliver and it turned out to be an excellent move; as this piece by Jesse David Fox concludes “It’s the difference between “proven talent” and “prove it, talent!” The Daily Show has done the perfect job in preparing us for a changeover.”
Carlos Danger, Anthony Weiner’s chosen sexting name has been the gift that keeps on giving for The Daily Show this summer and John Oliver’s Danger Dance accompanied by Mystikal ft. Nivea “Danger (Been So Long)” has been a constant source of joy. So to celebrate John Oliver’s excellent turn as host we will be doing our best Carlos Danger Dance today.
