Sundays, 11:00 PM ET on HBO
No matter when a story breaks, John Oliver will cover it the following Sunday.
Colbert and Daily Show fans, rejoice! This show nestles perfectly into their genre (well, it ought to, considering Oliver's previous work experience). But where I use Colbert and Stewart to keep up with the daily news, Oliver likes to pick important issues that maybe have been shunted off to the side in the mainstream media, and has the time (the show is an extra 10 minutes longer) to go in depth on the issue.
John is very funny, and enjoyable no matter whether you are left,right,center or disinterested. His banter is smart, hilarious and seemingly genuine. Because of his history in developing his talent one can always compare him to Colbert and Stewart but he has certainly made this HBO show his own. If you arent certain you want to donate an hour, check out a weekly rant on Youtube. It should give you an idea of what your in for. #GetThoseGekos
