Feels almost like a reboot. Episode was frustrating to watch, as one plot element after another from the past six seasons was tossed by the wayside.

Will is replaced (along with Kalinda,...

All I can offer is that, for me, having read the books has only enhanced the experience of watching the show. They create a synergy that to me is greater than either version alone.

It's a half-hour talk/discussion show about historical topics, on the History Channel, starting Feb 18. Weekly, I presume; initial order is 16 episodes.

Whether JO or SM is a "more apt comparison" to Stewart isn't a question that really engages me. What works as TV for a specific audience is, and that's why I compare what Meyers is doing now to what...

I'm a fan of Oliver as well; I just don't see him as an occupier of the same "late night talk show" space as Meyers.

I believe Meyers and his staff have realized there's a late-night vacuum where Jon Stewart used to be, and Trevor Noah isn't filling it.
