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.

Absolutely brilliant. I wish my country would have one of these! A perfect mix of comedy and actual news you might otherwise never hear of, or at least not in an ulfiltered manner ;)

Thank you for bringing Michael Bolton to a new level of entertainment enlightenment. and god bless the IRS (yes, I mean that).

And last week was just as amazing. it BECOMES part of your shared concept with the rest of the world when he helps to understand WHISTLEBLOWING with dickpics. How can people think of that?

Tackling tough subjects with humor is the hallmark of Comedy Central's spawning ground for incredibly insightful news commentary. John Oliver has moved to HBO so he can use the F word and do full frontal nudity...well, something like that.

Trying to save the world one topic at a time. This is not really a comedy news show. He mentions a few happenings of the past weeks, but most of each episode is spent on a pet issue that is ruining the world and not getting any mainstream media coverage. His brilliance as a comic is what keeps it from being just plain depressing. I think what he is trying to do is absolutely wonderful. I also love the fact that he encourages audience participation. If only it weren't hidden away on pay cable.

I love this show! But then again, I love The Daily Show with Jon Stewart (for some reason, I don't care for The Colbert Report). In a world of constant bad news and blatant dishonesty, it's fun to get the happenings of the day with a sarcastic and hilarious undertone.

John Oliver Is The Best In His Field!! After Jon Stewart Retired, I Thought No One Could Fill His Shoes(And No One Ever Will), But John Is The Closest We Are Gonna Get. He Is Funny As Hell, Very Witty, And Dead Serious When It Comes To The Issues Being Discussed. He Has A Real Positive Impact On People's Lives, And That's The Best Thing Anyone Could Hope For!!
