Olivia Munn Leaving G4TV For ‘The Daily Show’?
Tom Cheredar   |  

Olivia Munn, who is perhaps best known for her work as co-host of G4TV’s Attack of the Show, made her debut as a fake-news correspondent for Comedy Central’s The Daily Show, which was billed as a “tryout” for the actress, according to Reuters.

Munn appeared in a sketch about the Gulf of Mexico Oil Spill’s effect on Vietnamese fishermen on the June 3 episode with a pregnant Samantha Bee. And, while met with strong applause when introduced by host Jon Stewart as the newest Asian correspondent, reactions from fans have been mixed across the web.

Typically tryouts on The Daily Show have been given to relatively unknowns, which Munn, who appeared as a reporter in summer blockbuster Iron Man 2, clearly is not. If she does end up as a regular it could mean a departure from G4TV and hopefully an open door for some of her peers to follow suit [*ahem*chrishardwick*ahem*] .

Check out the sketch embedded below and tell us what you think. Hilarious? Horrible?

  1. Nooo. Give it to Alison Haislip or that smoking hot little redhead!

  2. She was clearly out of her comfort zone, but I think she could cozy into the “fake-news correspondent” role, if she did it regularly.

  3. Her bit was painful. Everyone else was good though. If only they could have fit John Oliver in there too for a complete current correspondent set.

  4. I hope Olivia doesn’t leave AoTS, it will ruin the show imo. The chemistry between Kevin and Olivia is unparalleled. And if she were to leave and Kevin stayed they’d have to get a new chick, two guys hosting the show would be kinda gay. And Chris Hardwick isn’t funny imo.

  5. @Niko They should have mentioned something British since I’m pretty sure that is how you summon John Oliver.

  6. Was a painful skit to watch, she clearly had no idea what to do. But that may change once she becomes used to the others and their antics.

    Her fake fame continues.

  7. I agree with Curt, If Munn left, please give it to Alison. Munn did look a little out of place, but I just think it was because we are used to seeing her in a different role.

  8. Good bye and good riddence.Now I’ll start watching AOTS again now that Munn is leaving.

  9. Daily show is not funny. The audience sounds stupid laughing at every single thing. O_Munn is weak. She has lost any appeal.

  10. I think the show could last without her, remember chris hardwick, alison haslip, and that girl who licks electronics always fill in for olivia and kevin And the show is still funny.

  11. Oh come on, I think I speak for most Daily Show fans when I say we don’t want her, she’s an idiot.

  12. Wow the intelligence here is staggering…….

    Comment by Omunnismywife — August 20, 2010 @ 12:22 am

  17. I love you Olivia Munn ..simply you are amazing! P.S. I would miss you greatly if you left AOTS and that is all.

    Comment by BKing — August 23, 2010 @ 11:00 am

    Comment by monkd — August 23, 2010 @ 7:59 pm

  19. Noohh!! Please olivia come back to AOTS… enough of this Daily Show!

    Comment by Jeric — August 26, 2010 @ 7:06 pm

  20. You guys need to get off Olivia’s nuts. That was hilarious, she did great in that skit.

    Comment by Lafty — August 27, 2010 @ 10:07 pm

  21. AOTS is poop without Olivia. The Daily Show is garbage. Allison Haislip stinks. Jon Steward is Lame. Olivia needs her own show.

    Comment by Honig Trueagle — September 5, 2010 @ 2:38 am

  22. Aots blows.
    I thot she was hilarious on daily show and she is a pretty intelligent person.
    Besides I think she’s on some new NBC show.
    And every audience laughs at every line on every show, at least the daily show is funny.

    Comment by Brandon — September 17, 2010 @ 1:19 am

  23. i think she did great for her first time… out of AOTS will give her time to expand, kind of like Steve and The Office, even though how painful it will be to watch him go, it’ll kind of be the same, even though Steve Carell has already been in many other movies.

    Comment by Cameon — September 20, 2010 @ 5:57 pm

  24. Alison sucks!
    Mediocre comedy is frowned upon!!!!
    Where the fuck is Olivia?

    Comment by David — September 20, 2010 @ 8:00 pm

  25. If she leaves, we will have allison. That’s not good. And Chris Hardwick? I’d rather watch tosh.o then his slezzy trash. Attack of the show will lose ratings, alot of them. And If AOTS keeps that girl who loves to jump up and down with her boobs, it will be better again, not to mention that one girl who looks like megan fox.

    Comment by Vic — September 26, 2010 @ 2:18 pm

  26. Don’t leave Olivia! She helped make AOTS. she was one of the main reasons I watched the show. It is an amazing show regardless, but I’m a huge fan Olivia.

    Comment by josh — October 1, 2010 @ 7:41 pm

  27. The show must go on and hot ass sara underwood is good enough for me. no chemistry w/ kevin,fine, difficulty repeating lines/reading teleprompter, okay, so damn hot to look at, YESS. plus naked yoga on the internet. She’s my pick!!!!!!!!!!!!

    Comment by nate — October 15, 2010 @ 10:36 pm

  28. Chris hardwick is one of the funniest people on g4 except for some of the jokes where you can clearly tell someone else wrote on web soup if olivia leaves it will suck i don’t like alison haislip so imo that won’t be a good replacement

    Comment by Jordan — October 20, 2010 @ 1:44 am

  29. Its too bad that if she levies Olivia and Kevin were a good pair they were together since i stated watching it at 12 years old it will be sad but it does i want chis hardwick his very funny and don’t see him very often

    Comment by marioboy — November 3, 2010 @ 3:32 am

  30. she can’t leave D:

    Comment by Liz — December 5, 2010 @ 4:40 pm

  31. She didnt wait long enough after her first punch line to milk the laugh, but other than that she didnt do a terrible job like everyone is making it out to be.

    She was great on aots, and I’ll be sad to see her go, although the replacement is indeed a hottie, so I wont lose too much sleep over it =P

    Comment by comedyfan — December 28, 2010 @ 1:52 pm

  32. Oliva was the main reason everyone started watching A.O.T.S.. But in my opinion it could 1 of 2 ways either fans quit the show all together in the news of the new chick and Oliva dropping and the ratings drop or the new chick knows the role she’s filling and fills the void and the ratings stay the same or go higher provided that fans give it a chance.

  33. The only thing about Olivia is that she is really hot. Kevin makes the show funny
