The announcement that Stephen Colbert would succeed David Letterman as host of CBS' 'Late Show' not only shook up the late-night landscape, it also left us wondering how Comedy Central might follow 'The Daily Show' after 'The Colbert Report' came to an end. It seems we now know, as 'The Daily Show''s "Senior Black Correspondent' Larry Wilmore will replace 'The Colbert Report' with his own series, aptly titled 'The Minority Report.'

Dismayed though we were to learn that 'The Daily Show' vet John Oliver had outgrown his position as correspondent (and brief host) to Jon Stewart, his HBO future looks brighter than ever. The premium cable network has officially set an April premiere for the newly-titled 'Last Week Tonight with John Oliver,' but when can fans see for themselves?

Where Comedy Central's 'The Daily Show' spun off the charisma of Stephen Colbert to spawn 'The Colbert Report,' it seems fellow 'Daily Show' breakout John Oliver has flown the coop altogether.

Jon Stewart may be one of the hardest working men on television, but it looks like he's about to take a break from hosting 'The Daily Show' for a few months. But he's not going on a vacation: he's going to direct a movie. 'Rosewater' will not only be Stewart's first time behind the camera, it will be something completely out of his regular wheelhouse.
