NEW YORK, August 27, 2013 -- Jon Stewart will be back hosting “The Daily Show with Jon Stewart” on Tuesday, September 3 at 11:00 p.m. ET/PT following the debut of “Tosh.0” at 10:00 p.m. and the second season premiere of “Brickleberry” at 10:30 p.m. ET/PT.
The intrepid host took a sabbatical in June from the series in order to direct his first feature film, entitled “Rosewater,” produced by Stewart’s production company, Busboy Productions, along with Scott Rudin Productions and Odd Lot Entertainment.  Longtime correspondent and writer John Oliver hosted the Emmy® and Peabody® Award-winning series during Stewart’s hiatus.

    Does anyone know how the average rating of “The Daily Show” compared with Jon Oliver as guest host, versus the average under John Stewart?

    I thought Oliver was incredible as the host over the summer. The show was consistently way funnier than usual. Will definitely miss him in the role.

    It was down slightly in viewers but steady or higher in demo than last year. BUT last year was an election year which gains viewers for the show.
