Jon Stewart is officially on hiatus from The Daily Show for the summer, and it appears that new host John Oliver is already making himself at home.

At the end of Thursday's show, Stewart attempted to offer a heartfelt goodbye to his audience, but was interrupted by Oliver, who showed up behind the desk with a tape measure, barking orders into a cell phone.

"Oh wow, you're still here," Oliver quipped to Stewart. "Looks like we have us an awkward situation on our hands."

Later, as Stewart attempted to throw to a "Moment of Zen," viewers instead saw Oliver sitting in Stewart's chair and putting his pens down his pants.

"I thought you'd gone," Oliver sheepishly told Stewart.
