John Oliver won an Emmy for his work as a writer on "The Daily Show With Jon Stewart," but it wasn't until he guest-hosted that show in the summer of 2013 that HBO took notice of his "singular perspective and distinct voice." Thanks to that memorable gig, Oliver gets to show off his talent in front of HBO's camera on "Last Week Tonight." The late-night series sees the British comic review what happened the past seven days in news, politics and current events, all with a heavy dose of satire, of course. Oliver hosted a stand-up show for four seasons on Comedy Central, and he was also responsible for co-writing and co-presenting the popular weekly satirical podcast "The Bugle."

It seems her correspondence role on "The Daily Show" was just a warm-up act for the next stage of Samantha Bee's career. After spending 12 years on the Comedy Central juggernaut, Bee was not approached to replace departing host Jon Stewart, opening the door to her own series on TBS. The weekly late-night newsmagazine serves as a platform for Bee to apply her sharp, satirical point of view to current and relevant issues. She won't do so while sitting at a fake news desk; instead, field reports dominate, allowing Bee to show off her uncanny ability to mine comedy gold from just about any awkward situation.
