Replacement ‘Daily Show’ Correspondent Patrick Stewart Is Better at Being John Oliver than John Oliver Is

By

It just so happens that the NFL referee strike is coinciding with a Daily Show correspondents strike, but, unlike the replacement refs, who aren’t doing a great job (I’m not a sports fan, but I think I’m right on this), replacement correspondent Patrick Stewart is filling in for striker John Oliver and knocking it out of the park (different sport, I know). Patrick Stewart is such a superior John Oliver that I wouldn’t be surprised if John Oliver awakes to find he’s no longer needed on his podcast The Bugle or NBC’s Community either.
