John Oliver's 'Last Week Tonight' Renewed Through 2017, Won't Take Over 'Daily Show'

John Oliver‘s Last Week Tonight has just been renewed by HBO for not just one, but two additional seasons!

The satirical news program will remain on the network officially until 2017 – which is noteworthy because many were wondering if John would defect back to Comedy Central to take over for The Daily Show and Jon Stewart.

“We are incredibly proud to have John as part of the HBO family,” Michael Lombardo, president of programming at HBO, said in a statement (via Variety). “His unique ability to deliver socially significant commentary week after week, along with his innate comedic brilliance, puts John in a class by himself.”

John Oliver gets the handcuffs out while making a hilarious audition tape for the Fifty Shades of Grey movie in this segment from his latest episode of Last Week Tonight.

“Sure, you passed me over for the ‘epitome of male beauty,’ but whenever you need a caucasian foreigner or a cheerful weakling, suddenly my phone’s blowing up,” the host said.

“New Year’s Eve is the worst. It combines three of the least pleasant things known to mankind,” John says. “Forced interaction with strangers being drunk, cold and tired, and having to stare at Ryan Seacrest for five solid minutes, waiting for him to tell you what the time is.”

John continues by providing ways that you can avoid New Year’s Eve altogether.

John Oliver Was Approached By CBS to Host a Late Night Show!

John Oliver was approached by CBS to potentially host a late night show in the 12:30 time slot currently occupied by Craig Ferguson, according to The Hollywood Reporter.

The 36-year-old British comedian successfully filled in for Jon Stewart over the summer as the host of Comedy Central’s The Daily Show and the execs at CBS started conversations with John‘s reps shortly after the run ended.

While the talks didn’t pan out - John decided to instead host a weekly satirical show on HBO – this shows that CBS might need to get a replacement for both The Late Show and The Late Late Show.

Craig‘s contract ends at the end of 2014 and it is not currently known whether he will be renewing it or not. There is also the possibility that he could be promoted to host of The Late Show now that David Letterman will be leaving.
