John Oliver, formerly of The Daily Show, premiered his own weekly news-satire show last night on HBO, and the network has put the episode in its entirety up on YouTube.
Slate will have a full review later today, but in the meantime, you can watch the debut of Last Week Tonight with John Oliver by clicking over to YouTube.*
* Update, 11:06 a.m.: This video can only be watched at YouTube. We will add an embeddable version if it becomes available.
