Critic Reviews for The Daily Show With Jon Stewart Season 18

All Critics (12) | Top Critics (9)

John Oliver did a nice job during the summer filling in for Stewart, who returned last week and was in midseason form. No other late-night show is more reliant on the news for its humor.

[John Oliver]'s a breath of fresh air for Comedy Central's political satire... Whatever he says, he's coming at you from a place of genuine love.

Jon Stewart can rest easily this summer, and so can we: The Daily Show is in great hands with John Oliver.

Obama and Stewart in a buddy cop flick -- gold. Gold.

Jan 28, 2019 | Full Review…

Already a gifted correspondent, Oliver grew more comfortable behind the desk during his run, starting out a trifle shaky before settling in and establishing himself as a fairly decent interviewer

Oliver is skilled and witty, and so this was a disingenuously low position from which to begin his stewardship of The Daily Show. It was politely deferential to Stewart for sure, but a bit too "golly gosh, it's only me".

Watching the Jon Stewart-less "Daily Show" is learning how a magic trick is done. It's impressive and disappointing all at once: That which appeared to be singular and special was always just hard work.

Top Critic

Stewart, a man clear in his political stance, backed by a research apparatus that informs about the ways in which government has failed while also satirizing it. I can't imagine The Daily Show even touching a situation like Sandy Hook in its early years

Oliver probably dispelled the worst fears of any young American liberals who were concerned that their hero's replacement would turn out to be a stiff...The new chap was nervous, certainly, but no less funny than his boss on an average evening.

Jan 28, 2019 | Full Review…

Daily Show fans need not lament the absence of beloved host Jon Stewart: his temporary fill-in, John Oliver, has got it covered, and on his first day subbing for Stewart, managed to make the Comedy Central late-night staple his own.
