Is Last Week Tonight with John Oliver new tonight on HBO? We’ve been lucky to kick off the season with two consecutive episodes; why not go ahead and make it a third?

We have no interest in keeping you waiting here, so let’s just go ahead and share the good news — the late-night series WILL be back with more later tonight! However, the caveat is that you are going to be waiting for at least a little while to see it. The plan right now is for the new episode to air around 11:25 p.m. Eastern, which is considerably later than some out there are accustomed to.

As for the reason behind this, let’s just make it simple: It is tied to HBO deciding to air a repeat of Curb Your Enthusiasm immediately after the new episode airs tomorrow. Since the Larry David comedy will be slightly longer than usual, Last Week Tonight gets pushed back a little bit. This may be one that some people out there do not stay up to see…

When it comes subject matter, obviously there are a lot of different discussions that the show could head! Conventional wisdom would suggest that at least the opening of the show would be geared a little bit towards the Presidential Election, especially since Super Tuesday is right around the corner and that means a lot to at least determining how narratives are shaped. Perhaps it would be a tad more meaningful in a cycle with more competition, but we are where we are with it.

The second part of the episode, meanwhile, will perhaps be a little more timeless — and honestly, this is something that is really hard to predict. Just remember here that we started off the season with a discussion on the Supreme Court and Clarence Thomas. From there, we veered into a completely different direction as we saw a breakdown of pig-butchering scams. Who knows where John will take us next?

What are you most curious to see on Last Week Tonight with John Oliver when it airs tonight?
