    He came under A LOT of heat from Democrats for not instead ranting at Republicans and it appears he saw the light, regressing to trivial sneering rants at Republicans often with no substance other than just pointless personal redicule.

    He's losing his funny and increasingly just becoming a shallow overacting characature of himself. I also think he's became a lazyass and just showing up and going thru whatever staff writers toss in front of him. My wife won't even watch him anymore. And she used to be a very devoted fan at many levels. Again, we travelled cross country just so she could attend his DC event.

As long as people don't accept the show as strictly news it's fine. That said I'll miss his show this summer. I don't think his fill in is nearly as entertaining.
    Oliver does great segments but I don't see him being that great as host.

    Well, I agree that you have to understand where the information is coming from, but to compare Stewart to Rush is silly. The only thing they have in common is that they have shows that talk about politics. That's about it, lol.

    really like the commitment he is demonstrating in support of the iranian journalist

    also hope Lewis Black sits in for Stewart during his hiatus

    I don't like to compare the two being that Jon is a straight-man comedian and Oliver is a color-man comedian. I think they work well together and I'm just curious to see a color-man take the lead role and see what happens.

    Stewart's bashing knows no limits.

    His beatings point out the hypocrisy of his targets, so they have nobody to blame but themselves.
