Oscar Stewart

Jon Stewart will reportedly host the Academy Awards this March. I say it's a good choice, as Stewart is truly one of the funniest people currently alive, and did a great job hosting the Grammys and MTV Awards in past years. And while Chris Rock did an underwhelming turn in his debut as host last year, he was somewhat handcuffed by his inability to do more ribald material, Stewart's long been good at both blue and non-blue material.

All that, and he's not Whoopi Goldberg.

How big of a role does Stewart play in the writing of the daily show?

Very true, Rock needs more of the room cable allows to fully take advantage of being funny.
