John Oliver is leaving "The Daily Show" for his own weekly HBO talk show
Oliver will host a Sunday night show starting in 2014 that will take a satirical take on the news, much like "The Daily Show." Oliver says in a statement: "I'm incredibly excited to be joining HBO, especially as I presume this means I get free HBO now. I want to thank Comedy Central, and everyone at 'The Daily Show' for the best seven and a half years of my life. But most of all, I’d like to thank Jon Stewart. He taught me everything I know. In fact, if I fail in the future, it's entirely his fault."
