Last Week Tonight’s John Oliver

by Elizabeth Gunto July 23rd, 2014
On HBO's new political satire, Last Week Tonight with John Oliver, the Brit host has offered America a new and British perspective on our messy and often unpleasant issues. While the show's young age is noticeable, its host finds his own scathing yet charming voice. The Daily Show, where Oliver became more visible to Americans,  is explicitly a parody of a news show. Last Week Tonight is not, and that flexibility gives him the space to be sincere, incredulous and hilarious.

Oliver has been building his way to his new gig at HBO his entire career. He began his stand

Brit John Oliver leaves the confines of The Daily Show to host his own late-night talk show on HBO. The freedom of premium cable lets Oliver explore the news with more openness (and more nudity and more cursing) than its predecessor would ever get, and Oliver covers the issues without pandering, patronizing or preaching. Nudity aside, HBO gives Oliver the freedom to speak to his audience as the adults they are.

Last Week Tonight does need to work on separating its identity from its origin, as its format can sometimes come off as "The Daily Show with the British Guy." Last Week Tonight

Big Smo Must Go

Delete It
A&E believes that it has found a worthy successor to its runaway smash hit Duck Dynasty, going so far as to promote Big Smo with the tagline “A New Dynasty is Beginning”.  Duck Dynasty is a hokey, happy show about a backwoods redneck family that hits it big with a multi-million dollar duck call business.  It is very staged and predictable but it caters to a large audience oddly fascinated by redneck culture and hungry for something “nice” on TV.  The idea is that Big Smo will follow in the territory staked out by Duck Dynasty and give fans
