Is Last Week Tonight with John Oliver new tonight on HBO? Come around 11:00 p.m. Eastern, you’ll find yourself asking that question and looking to see Oliver back with more headlines.
Yet, you’re not going to see it and with that, the questions will start pouring in. Is this a repeat? We understand those fully, especially since this show does have a trajectory of airing a new episode, only to then go off the air for some substantial period of time.
Here is the good news that we’ve got for you now: There will be a new episode of Last Week Tonight airing on HBO, and this is one that could be stuffed full of all sorts of headlines. Think in terms of the latest on the impeachment inquiry, plus also some more stuff that is going on in terms of the Democratic Presidential race. Then, there is that main story, which is likely to be disconnected in some sort of way from much of the current headlines … but is somehow still relevant. This is a big part of what makes this show so fascinating week to week; it does have an ability to create stories just as much as perpetuate them.
So when is the show starting? Due to the finales of Ballers as well as Succession, it’s going to be around … just a little bit later than usual. It will be on 11:35 p.m. Eastern time, following the Ballers series finale. It will certainly be available after the fact on HBO GO or HBO NOW if you have to get up early in the morning … and the main segment will eventually find its way onto YouTube. Rest assured that if you are wanting your fix on all things John Oliver, your opportunity will be there. You may just have to wait a little longer than usual tonight.
Of course, we think that all segments this year are going to struggle to match the greatness of his piece about Turkmenistan, which was coupled with an effective takedown of what it means to actually hold some sort of “World Record,” at least via Guinness.
