John Oliver admits he's lied 31 times as interim host and remembers interviewing Aaron Sorkin in the dark. (2:35)

>> WELCOME TO THE DAILY

SHOW!

MY NAME IS JOHN OLIVER!

I'M STILL HERE.

JON STEWART HAS BEEN

SPENDING HIS SUMMER IN THE

MIDDLE EAST DIRECTING A

MOVIE THAT HE WROTE.

THAT IMAGE IS NOT PHOTO SHOP

THAT IS A REAL PICTURE.

I SUPPOSE IT'S ONLY FAIR

THAT I LEVEL WITH ALL OF

YOU.

I HAVE BEEN LYING ABOUT

WHERE JON STEWART'S BEEN ALL

SUMMER.

IN FACT, I'VE LIED TO YOU

EXACTLY 31 TIMES IT SEEMED

APPROPRIATE TO CONFESS

TONIGHT BECAUSE THIS IS MY

LAST SHOW AT INTERIM HOST.

STOP HIDING YOUR JOY.

JON STEWART WILL BE BACK IN

SEPTEMBER.

WE'RE ALL LOOKING FORWARD TO

SEEING HIM SO MUCH.

BEFORE WE GO INTO OUR TOP

STORY TONIGHT WE JUST WANTED

TO TAKE A MOMENT TO

ACKNOWLEDGE THE HORRIFYING

EVENTS UNFOLDING RIGHT NOW

IN EGYPT.

OUR DEEPEST THOUGHTS ARE

WITH EVERYONE OVER THERE FOR

MORE ON THAT DEVELOPING

STORY, YOU SHOULD PROBABLY

WATCH THE REAL NEWS.

THAT'S KIND OF WHAT THEY'RE

BUILT FOR.

IN THE MEANTIME WE'RE GOING

TO PUSH AHEAD WITH OUR FINAL

SILLY SHOW OF THE SUMMER,

OUR GUEST TONIGHT WRITER AND

OF THE SILLY SHOW SIMON PEG

WILL BE WITH US.

FRANKLY, SIMON HAS A LOT TO

LIVE UP TO TONIGHT GUEST

WISEMENT I DON'T KNOW IF HE

SAW LAST NIGHT'S SHOW BUT

REGIS PHIL PYNN ENDED THE

INTERVIEW IN A SLIGHTLY

UNEXPECTED MANNER.

♪ LOOKS LIKE WE MADE IT ♪

♪ HE KISSED ME ON THE HEAD.

AND YOU KNOW WHAT, I WOKE UP

THIS MORNING AND HI A GRAY

PATCH OF HAIR IN THE EXACT

SHAPE OF REGIS'S LIPS.

AND I REALIZED HE JUST SAPD

MY YOUTH.

THAT'S HOW HE STILL LOOKS SO

INCREDIBLE.

HE SUCKS YEARS FROM THE

HEADS OF MEN THROUGH HIS

LIPS.

HE TOOK TEN YEARS FROM MY

LIFE.

AND I CAN TELL YOU SOMETHING

T WAS TOTALLY WORTH IT!

EVERYTHING FELT BETTER IN

THAT MOMENT.

THIS HAS BEEN SUCH A FUN

SUMMER SO MANY MEMORIES.

TRADITIONALLY THIS CAN BE A

SLOW TIME FOR NEWS BUT THIS

PARTICULAR SUMMER HAS BEEN

JUST ONE STORY AFTER

ANOTHER.

WE HAD THE VOTING RIGHTS

ACT.

GAY MARRIAGE.

PAULA DEEN.

WE DID IMMIGRATION.

THERE WAS A ROYAL BABY WITH

JASON JONES PUNCHING A HORSE

IN THE FACE.

WE HAD A MID SHOW BLACKOUT

FORCING ME TO INTERVIEW ERIC

IN THE DARK.

THEN THERE WAS, OF COURSE,

THAT NIGHT THE DARK PUNK

PLAYED LIVE IN OUR STUDIO

INSTEAD OF GOING ON COLBERT.

THAT WAS FUN.

THEN OF COURSE THERE WAS

THAT AMAZING MOMENT WHERE

HELEN MIRIN WAS A GUEST AND

SHE DECIDED TO SLIP AND

SLIDE OVER TO THE DESK.
