“Sometimes we don’t want a British man yelling at us about how the world is ending for a whole hour…” Last Week Tonight is coming back to HBO on 2/12/17, but as John Oliver learned from this trailer, it’s definitely not HBO’s most eagerly-anticipated series.
Last Week Tonight
(PG-13: Language) While on hiatus, John Oliver stopped by the Last Week Tonight set to record a brief public service announcement about our fine feathered friends. We’re guessing a pigeon pooped on his freshly pressed suit on his way to the studio.
(PG-13: Language) Last Week Tonight looks at government policies and stigmas that make it very hard for even low-level offenders in the US to rehabilitate, causing many of them to eventually end up in jail once again – an inefficient and most of all inhumane system.
(PG-13: Language) Last Week Tonight singles out US gubernatorial candidates who oppose Medicaid expansion in their states, despite their poor constituents’ dire need of it. The irony? At least one of them has received government aid for his ailing business.
(PG-13: Language) Last Week Tonight looks at how oil companies have abused North Dakota’s “friendly business climate” by washing their hands clean of accidents and paying off politicians so they’ll only pay small fines for violations.
(PG-13 Language) John Oliver takes a break from taking a break to give incoming American high school students an irreverent rundown of the things that they’ll be taught. And the ones that are actually worth learning about.
(PG-13) Last Week Tonight‘s John Oliver loves lying about history so much that he will release the book that he also lied about in a previous episode. Here’s a sample of lies from the book. So… will the show return or not?
