Everyone’s favorite Daily Show fill-in host, John Oliver, is getting his own show on HBO: Last Week Tonight With John Oliver. As Oliver himself explains above, it may not be as on top of the news as other shows. But if it’s as clever and funny as he usually is, we’ll watch anyway. It premieres Sunday, April 27, at 11 p.m. Eastern.
John Oliver's new HBO show doesn't premiere until April 27th, but in the first promo released today, the network is stressing one major difference between Last Week Tonight and The Daily Show. Namely, that it will only air once a week on Sunday nights at 11pm, no matter what else is happening in the news.
It looks like John Oliver is going to be all right. He left the hallowed fake news halls of The Daily Show in December to launch his own show on HBO and after months of anticipation, we've finally got our first taste of the weekly program. If you love him, you're going to love this. Last Week Tonight debuts April 27. -- Jordan Valinsky More
