In that time, the show has won 26 Emmys for its satirical take on the news. Oliver expressed gratitude towards HBO in self-deprecating fashion.

"We're very happy to get to keep making this show with our fantastic staff," Oliver said in a statement. "We will continue trying to stretch the term 'entertainment' to the breaking point."

Oliver was a Daily Show correspondent and guest host during Jon Stewart's absence before landing his own weekly news show on HBO.
