On the first new "Daily Show" in over a week, John Oliver compared Barack Obama's historic win in November to Hugh Jackman's "historic" rise to Oscar host. He claimed both men were able to come to power because of the incompetence of their predecessors.
Stewart hosted both the 78th and 80th Academy Awards and joked on his show that the Oscars must not be happening this year because he wasn't asked to MC. Oliver went on to eviscerate Stewart for laying "two massive turds on that stage" and praise Jackman as:
"...charisma stuffed inside a Greek god coated in raw talent, and garnished with what I can only imagine is a spectacular Australian c**k."
