Jon Stewart returns to 'Daily Show': He's baaaaack!

"The Daily Show's" long, Jon Stewart-less summer has come to an end.

The beloved host returned to his chair on Tuesday night after a three-month hiatus  - a long enough stretch of time that Stewart needed some help getting back in his groove.

It seems that after spending the summer working on his first feature film, "Rosewater," Stewart not only missed out on all the news happening in America but he'd completely forgotten how to be American.

Thankfully, Stephen Colbert was up to the challenge.

Once the beard was gone and the accent fixed, Stewart was back to his old self.

"I'm so excited to be back. I learned an awful lot this summer," he said. "One, I learned I have the beard of a 90-year-old prospector. I learned that I am Western, because for all that I appreciated and learned about the culture that I was immersed in, boy, I'm Western, in all its glorious, decadent imperfections. I recall driving back into New York City thinking, 'hello dildo shop near a school.'"

Stewart handed the desk over to John Oliver for safe-keeping while he concentrated on filming his movie based on journalist Maziar Bahari's detainment in Iran while covering the presidential elections there in 2009. The script, which Stewart also wrote, is based on Bahari's book, "Then They Came For Me."

Now that the host is back, Oliver caught him up on all that he missed over the summer - the birth of the royal baby; Paula Deen's tearful summer; Anthony Weiner's continued struggles - and then handed over the reins.

It looks like Stewart came back just in time for the top story of the day: Syria.

    Oh good, then I can start watching that show again. The british guy was soooo BAD! I didn't even chuckle ONCE during the episode I saw him host, and I know it's a scripted show, but he sreally sounded like he was reading off a card – NO delivery, no talent! I think they only chose him for his lame british accent.

      Seriously? You didn't like John Oliver? I thought he was brilliant.

      I gave him a fair chance, however there's something in his delivery that I find forced and fakeish. Maybe he got better towards the end of the stint.
