HBO signs John Oliver for a weekly show that’s like The Daily Show except weekly

HBO just announced on Twitter that it has signed John Oliver “for a weekly topical comedy series, presenting a satirical look at news, politics, and current events.” Oliver joined The Daily Show With Jon Stewart in 2006 and became one of Stewart’s favored correspondents, appearing frequently to showcase his British bafflement at American politics. When Stewart took time off this summer to direct his first feature film, Oliver was the pick for fill-in host, and apparently HBO liked what it saw. Oliver’s as-yet-untitled series will air on Sundays, starting sometime in 2014.
