Oh, nooooooo. Last night was John Oliver's last ever episode of The Daily Show before he moves on to create his own topical comedy series for HBO. What heartbreaking news! We LOVE John Oliver! But also, what happy news! We love John Oliver aaaand we're happy to see his success grow and grow and grow and never stop growing.
Throughout the day yesterday, Jon Stewart had John Oliver — for his final bit — preparing a segment about the British hacking scandal,only once the pair were actually on air, Stewart threw the whole thing to the wind and instead devoted the time to singing Oliver's praises and showing clips from some of his best Daily Show moments. Both Oliver and Stewart ended up crying and, oh, look, now I'm crying, too. THANKS, GUYS. (But, seriously, thanks for everything.)
Best of luck, John Oliver. And may you never stop living dangerously.
