About two months ago, we learned that Jon Stewart was surprisingly going to take the summer off from The Daily Show to direct a feature film about the true story of a journalist who was taken prisoner in Iraq for 118 days. We already knew that John Oliver would be taking over, but today Comedy Central announced his start date: June 10. He’ll man the ship until September 3, when Stewart triumphantly returns. Oliver’s first week’s guests will be Seth Rogen, Armando Iannucci, Mavis Staples, and Fareed Zakaria. Zakaria! You dog. Not even letting your man be gone a week before you shack up with someone newer, Britisher.
