1. That was excellent. Oliver seemed to be in tears toward the end.

7. No "almost" about it

He was THIS CLOSE to breaking down and bawling. I'll miss the dude.

9. Seeing him wipe his tears made me wipe mine. He has been there a long time and

I consider him an essential part of why I watch. I will still watch but it won't seem quite the same until some time passes.

Bye Jon...will still listen to the bugle podcasts and hope your new show is a raving success!

2. I heart John Oliver. That was a nice tribute--he got pretty choked up.

3. First time I've seen someone get choked up as they were departing

 

Let's hope John Oliver has a Steve Carrel/Ed Helms future and not a Rob Cordry future.

6. Saw it, loved it.

Look forward to the HBO show.

Jon is gracious to his departing folk. Nice.

8. Saw This And it Did Get To Oliver

Somehow he held together, it was touching. I figured he'd get some offers because he was so great filling in for Stewart this past summer.

I wish luck to him with this new HBO gig, and I think there is a very good chance that he'll take over from Stewart once Jon walks away.
