In an emotional address, and flanked by family and friends, Colbert Busch singled out her army of volunteers in particular, stating “your time, your hard work, your dedication, and your confidence in me will take me to wherever my next journey is.” She concluded by saying, “my only pledge was to the people of the first district, and I respect your decision. This is the beauty of our country,” adding, “I assure you I will continue to fight for the state of South Carolina.”

Welcome to the ‘Six Degrees Catch Up Edition’ featuring all the latest happenings and goings on in the world of ‘Daily Show’ and ‘Colbert Report’ staff and ‘Friends of the Show’.
In this month’s catch up we have a new humour piece from Frank Lesser, discusses on comedy writing with Meredith Scardino, J.R. Havlan, Josh Lieb and Lewis Black, a new book from David Sedaris, and Steve Carell talks about his Daily Show screaming rivalry with Stephen Colbert.
John Oliver will take over as guest host of “The Daily Show with Jon Stewart” on Monday, June 10 at 11:00 p.m. ET/PT. Oliver will serve as host of the Emmy® and Peabody® Award-winning series for the eight weeks of original episodes that are scheduled during Jon Stewart’s hiatus to direct his first feature film, “Rosewater.” Stewart will return on Tuesday, September 3. Scheduled guests for Oliver’s first week include Seth Rogen (June 10), Armando Iannucci (June 11), a musical performance by Mavis Staples (June 12) and Fareed Zakaria (June 13).
“Don’t worry, it’s still going to be everything that you love about ‘The Daily Show,’ just without the thing that you love the most about it,” said Oliver.
‘The Hollywood Reporter’ talks to Comedy Central’s programming chief Kent Alterman about letting Jon Stewart take leave to direct a feature film, future opportunities for John Oliver, and how concerning it is to hear Jon Stewart and Stephen Colbert’s name suggested as future successors of David Letterman.
Stephen Colbert’s and Stewart’s names have come up in many recent late-night stories, most often as potential David Letterman replacements. How concerning is that for you?
They have not approached us about wanting to do that. The great thing for us right now is that Jon Stewart and Stephen Colbert are beating every one of those other late-night shows in our demographic of 18- to 49-year-olds, and I haven’t heard anything that indicates that they’re about to jump ship.
