Is Last Week Tonight with John Oliver new tonight on HBO? Consider this article your source for all pertinent info leading into the August 23 episode tonight.
There’s actually a lot of good news worth reporting as we dive into the update today, starting with simply the fact that there is a new episode coming! Not only that, but it’s actually airing at a time that is typically meant to — 11:00 p.m. Eastern. Given how often the show airs in all sorts of weird timeslots, it’s almost a bigger surprise to see it coming on the air when it is actually meant to. A welcome surprise, but still.
So what will Oliver talk about tonight? It’s going to be interesting to see which way he wants to go with this given that there are a couple of different options that he has. He could, for example, opt to spend a considerable amount of time on the Democratic National Convention from the past several days — there’s certainly enough content within that to fill up at least thirty minutes. Yet, a lot of that content would be fairly expected. While we’re sure that it is going to have a role during the episode, we almost expect him to do something similar to last week where he shifts much of the focus and spends a good bit of time on a smaller, more surprising subject. Who would’ve expected a lengthy segment all about juries? Yet, it still proved to be both exciting and informative — we did get a window into something that a lot of people aren’t familiar with.
Rest assured, we are going to have some more updates on tonight’s episode the moment that it airs — be sure to come back for further discussion on that very subject.
