Noah acknowledged backstage that Daily Show benefited from John Oliver’s Emmy worshipped HBO series Last Week Tonight moving out of Talk Series and into the Variety Series race (a category Oliver ultimately won).

“I told you we’d beat John Oliver if he wasn’t in our category,” Noah joked to reporters. “We did i — we got rid of John Oliver.”

The Daily Show‘s big win during Monday’s three-hour Fox telecast made headlines for other reasons.
