Jon Stewart will be back as host of “The Daily Show” in a week after his summer off to direct his first feature film, “Rosewater.”

Comedy Central re-confirmed Tuesday (Aug. 27) that Stewart will be back at the desk on Sept. 3. The channel also released a video of all the jokes interim host John Oliver made about where Stewart has been all summer, from “living out a live-action ‘Lord of the Rings’ role-playing experience” to “on a Rumspringa” to “hosting ‘The Doily Show,’ America’s greatest satirical lace-centerpiece program.”

Oliver ended his run as host of the show on Aug. 15, and it’s been in reruns since then.
