  • SORRY, THE DAILY SHOW

    HBO Renews Last Week Tonight With John Oliver for Two More Seasons

    The last sliver of hope that Oliver might return to Comedy Central to take over The Daily Show following Jon Stewart's upcoming departure has been thoroughly crushed.

    • John Oliver hoping to become a Kingmaker this Election 2016!

      8.0
      John Oliver is always funny like John Stewart his Guru but just like him loses the plot a bit and sounds a bit shrill when he dons his deeply liberal shoes. No doubt he's desperate to be the Tina Fey of this Election (so do so many others!) and bring down Trump just as Tina almost single-handedly destroyed Sarah Palin.



      He has rejected some real coverage to attack Trump and his ideas (do they need attacking?!) with the hope that Donald Trump takes him on a personal level. That would certainly elevate him in the status and make him the King Player. Then he could hog the limelight.



      Good strategy see if it works for you. I prefer the funnier John Oliver with the razor sharp incisive thoughts on real issues!

      Last Week Tonight with John Oliver is hilarious, witty, eye-opening, charming, entertaining, and informative. I don't plan to miss an episode! Just wish that non-HBO subscribers had access, too. At least he has some great clips on youtube from his show as well!
    • Insightful funny

      9.0
      Love this show, especially since it found it's own format.



      Doesn't just make jokes, but gives insight in the topics. Not a 'Daily show' clone!

      Daily What? Jon Who? This is fantastic! No wonder Johnny Stew is retiring! And to carrierdyanamics: NO! He's ours now!
    • America Stole John Oliver!

      Listen America! you have stolen our best satirist. Satire in the UK is currently in poor shape thanks to you, where the content is always written around the jokes (just watch mock the week or ten o clock live). i love the way this show clearly focuses on content and then builds the jokes around it. Now, we are willing to make a deal, in exchange for the return of John Oliver, we offer Jimmy Carr. Please say YES!moreless
