Colbert and Daily Show fans, rejoice! This show nestles perfectly into their genre (well, it ought to, considering Oliver's previous work experience). But where I use Colbert and Stewart to keep up with the daily news, Oliver likes to pick important issues that maybe have been shunted off to the side in the mainstream media, and has the time (the show is an extra 10 minutes longer) to go in depth on the issue.
Absolutely brilliant. I wish my country would have one of these! A perfect mix of comedy and actual news you might otherwise never hear of, or at least not in an ulfiltered manner ;)
