The British are leaving! Longtime correspondent John Oliver announced he is leaving Comedy Central's The Daily Show after landing his own weekly comedy series at HBO. "I want to thank Comedy Central, and everyone at ‘The Daily Show' for the best seven and a half years of my life." Oliver said in a statement. "But most of all, I'd like to thank Jon Stewart. He taught me everything I know. In fact, if I fail in the future, it's entirely his fault."
