Briefly: John Oliver, Carrie Underwood, Elton John

John Oliver’s guest-stint hosting “The Daily Show” turned out to be an audition for a new job — he’s landed a new weekly series on HBO, the network announced. (AP)

Julie Andrews has some very kind words about Carrie Underwood starring as Maria in NBC’s live remake of “The Sound of Music” next month (we’ll see how that goes.) Anyway, the actress, 78, told Zap2It, “Fifty years later, it’s time somebody had another crack at it…I think it’s great that it’s being done again, but doing it live must be so daunting for Carrie.” (Zap2It)

Dave McKenna’s reviewed Elton John at the Verizon Center last night: “Almost three hours of near note-for-note re-creations of lots of pop history’s most familiar tunes.” (The Post)
