John Oliver on the Daily Show

Why is he the only correspondent?

Is it because he's British? Is he a part of a different union?

Just wondering.

According to The Daily Show, it's because he's British and here on a work visa.

Who cares. Funniest line I've heard recently.

"I am just talking to you. This is not writing. I have absolutely no idea how the sentence I am currently saying is going to finish. When and if it does, I can only hope it makes some kind of ceramic pineapple."

Strike is truly energizing talk show creativity. There's no television like thinking-on-your-feet television. Like the first ten years of the medium.

Actually I've heard all the correspondents have returned and are free to write copy for themselves - though the WGA seems unaware that rule applies.
