Here’s What John Oliver’s New Show Will Be Like

Everyone’s favorite Daily Show fill-in host, John Oliver, is getting his own show on HBO: Last Week Tonight With John Oliver. As Oliver himself explains above, it may not be as on top of the news as other shows. But if it’s as clever and funny as he usually is, we’ll watch anyway.

It premieres Sunday, April 27, at 11 p.m. Eastern.
