Olivia Munn: Daily Show's New Correspondent!

Jon Stewart welcomed a new correspondent – Olivia Munn – to The Best F#@king News Team Ever during today’s taping of The Daily Show!

The 29-year-old Munn, who gained popularity hosting G4′s geek-culture TV series Attack of the Show, is welcomed to the show during a taped skit featuring all of the current correspondents — Samantha Bee, John Oliver, Jason Jones, Aasif Mandvi and Wyatt Cenac.

“All of them tease Olivia,” an audience member from today’s taping exclusively told JustJared.com. “They all try to size her up and protect their turf, so to speak.”

Olivia is the fifth female correspondent to join the show including Steve Carell‘s wife, Nancy. The Daily Show’s newest addition also has another regular acting gig, her new comedy Perfect Couples, premiering mid-season on NBC.

Tune into The Daily Show with Jon Stewart tonight (June 3) @ 11PM/10c on Comedy Central!

Congrats, Olivia!!!

Congrats girlie!!!!

no one knew who this f**kin’ girl was until she F**ked Chris Pine..
yeah she is a Hollywood Ho…sleeping her way to the top…but she’s not the first and she will not be the last….I just wish media stop talking about her…

In other news, I still don’t care about this girl. Stop shoving her down my throat!

…What a fcuking joke. LMFBAO

is this gonna be permanent thing? if so she’s gonna have to move to nyc.

Considering how she is never on AOTS anyways, I guess it’s safe to assume that she is done with it….

Whatever... @ 06/03/2010 at 9:15 pm

Unknown, unliked, boring, ugly, and possibly once a man. Oh yeah, another story about this useless hog. Thanks for paying attention to what the fans of your site DON’T like Jared.

OMG ! It’s Olivia Munn Again !!! She looks sooooo happy to be here ! haha. She makes me feel happy all inside. I heart you Olivia Munn !

Is she even funny?

It’s funny how all the girls are hating on Olivia Munn.. she’s the only chick in Hollywood right now that has a sense of humor and can make me laugh.. they just did a special on her on G4 and i couldn’t stop laughing.. i’m sure she’ll do well on the show.. everyone loves her on Attack of the Show.

Haters to the left. Girl is gorgeous and funny and super nice, and while I’m not sure TDS is the most logical choice for her career, she’ll probably hold her own.

love what you said no.18 she is funny and does have alot acting gigs right now. Really enjoyed her on attack of the show. love her she’s really funny. And hope she do well there. So why rachel bilson haven’t gotten jobs like that? But love me some Olivia munn. LoL

The Hollywood Reporter tells it a little differently:
(http://livefeed.hollywoodreporter.com/2010/06/olivia-munn-daily-show-coorespondant-.html)

“Olivia Munn ‘trying out’ as ‘Daily Show’ correspondent

Starting tonight, Olivia Munn will be trying out as a “Daily Show” correspondent.

The fanboy-friendly “Attack of the Show” co-host will serve as a corespondent on the Comedy Central series in tonight’s episode, plus likely tape a few other segments over the next couple weeks.

A Comedy Central spokesperson characterized tonight’s appearance as a “try out,” something the network has done on occasion over the years with various performers. Munn, however, is the highest-profile person to ever do a trial run as a “Daily Show” corespondent (Josh Gad did it a year or so ago).

The quick-witted Munn certainly seems capable of such a gig. Though between her gig on G4, and her NBC sitcom next season, “Perfect Couples,” Munn’s plate has been pretty full…”

Olivia is great. Thanks to the haters keeping her name out there!

just saw her on the show. she is the “senior asian correspondent”.
she wasnt bad.

no one knew who this f**kin’ girl was until she F**ked Chris Pine..
yeah she is a Hollywood Ho…sleeping her way to the top…but she’s not the first and she will not be the last….I just wish media stop talking about her…

Damn Dude true **** man she ruins attack of the show and now this man ***** PLEASE!!
