Jon Stewart replacement, It was reported on May 2, 2013, that John Oliver will be stepping in as Jon Stewart's replacement during the summer. According to The Christian Science Monitor Oliver will be the host of "The Daily Show" during Stewart's three-month hiatus.

Stewart has hosted for almost 15 years and wants to take some time off to pursue other interests. The first being directing his very first feature film, "Rosewater". The film is based upon nonfiction best-selling book, "Then They Came for Me: A Family’s Story of Love, Captivity, and Survival".

Oliver is a correspondent for "The Daily Show" and has been involved with the program since 2006. The 36-year old English comedian also sometimes appears on the hit television show, "Community".

Stewart's precise return date to late night television is currently unknown. This could mean that he is ready to move on. Other notable alumni from "The Daily Show" who moved on to other pursuits include Stephen Colbert, Steve Carell and Ed Helms.
