Watchseries; I used to love John Oliver and found his show at first as the most worthy successor to The Daily Show, which splintered apart shortly after the departure of Jon Stewart into several similar, lesser shows. Each show has a similar formula with a lot of news stories read off and comedic commentary offered as well. Jon's show would often revolve around a major highlight expose which would serve to educate us audience members about some sort of major problem in society, be it recycling, pollution, corruption, politics, etc.

Recently he's lost his studio audience so no longer playing to literal laughs and just preaches, Keith Olberman-style, in front of an empty grey wall. I am sure this minimalist approach is making some political statement about how much they've pared back in solidarity with the lockdown, etc. but it just serves to reveal how heinously un-funny this show has gradually become. Not only do I catch myself not laughing at all, but often switching off in sheer frustration in favor of someone more sensible like Tim Pool, Tucker Carlson or David Ruben. They're not exactly comedians, but I find myself at least chuckling here and there.

Oliver's staff has obviously gone "full woke" to push a fully Leftist and anti-Trump agenda that would make even Bernie Sanders blush. Literally anything Trump or the Republicans do, Oliver pounces on them and I think with a lot of dangerous results because he's quick to report opinions on unfolding events as though they were facts. Sources get cherry-picked and inconvenient facts go ignored in favor of sensationalizing issues and stirring the audience up even further. I wonder if people watch this to get angry, get educated, or be entertained by the jokes? The humor of the show relies on targeting conservatives for their assumed idiocy and leans heavily on tired sexualized gimmicks which present Oliver as being attracted to everything. It's gotten very old quick.

Last Week Tonight with John Oliver watchseries. John Oliver is consistently the best in his field. If I had one complaint it's that he takes a lot of weeks off, but you know what, he deserves it.

When it first came out, the show was very good. John Oliver is funny, it's on par to the golden years of the Daily Show with Jon Stewart. However, its no longer got that free-spirited witty fun to it, its malicious, rude, and stretches the most absurd accusations to the point of not being funny. It's too preachy now but still calls attention to important issues no one knows about, yet is disingenuous with issues that are already localized and know about. Bias and now I miss the 2000s when Fox News was the most absurd thing, now its basically the entire media.

Well first of all, I have always liked John Oliver. He is yet another talented comedian in a line of many others bred at the talent breeding grounds known as the Daily Show. For people who don't know, Oliver lured away the talented Tim Carvell, former head writer for the daily show, away from Jon Stewart. This was clearly a brilliant move and Stewart was nice enough to part with Carvell. Now that both Oliver and Carvell have a show on HBO with pretty much unlimited creative freedom, they are tackling the most important issues with a fearless tenacity that most comedians/hosts/shows can't afford to have. The reporting is concise and brilliantly edited, the delivery is sharp and witty, and the fact that the show is only 30 minutes long is long enough to hold most people's attention. Good job HBO on creating this gem!

This show is a rare gem; it talks about problems of the world - not necessarily the biggest problems, although sometimes it tells commonly known issues that affect so many people -, it's sarcastic and very funny. John Oliver is a great comedian and an amazing presenter, he performed very well during the pandemic as well although he had to do the show from his 'void' without audience or staff members. Although I'm not from US, I find the presentation of topics related to US issues interesting as well, but my favorites are the episodes dealing with international problems. I also respect the producers and John Oliver because of crazy things they do to respond to corrupt people or authoritarians. It deserves all Emmys it got.
