HBO Gives John Oliver’s New Weekend Series A Name

Last Week Tonight with John Oliver will be the name of John Oliver’s new show for HBO. I have to say that I’m very excited. I love The Daily Show and The Colbert Report, but when Oliver took the reigns for 12 weeks, all I could think to myself as it came to an end was, “He can’t possibly go back to being a correspondent, he needs his own show immediately!” Via Twitter:

Thankfully, HBO gave him his own show where he can go over the entire weeks events with a little more edge. Via HBO:

HBO has confirmed the title and launch date for John Oliver’s topical half-hour comedy series. Presenting a satirical look at the week in news, politics and current events, LAST WEEK TONIGHT WITH JOHN OLIVER will debut SUNDAY, APRIL 27 (11:00-11:30 p.m. ET/PT), with other weekly editions debuting subsequent Sundays at the same time on HBO.

HBO is dropping Game of Thrones, VEEP, and Last Week Tonight with John Oliver all on us this April. I’m looking forward to going outside and doing stuff because it will be Spring, but HBO is trying to throw a television lock on the door, and I’m okay with that. I don’t know about you, but I kind of feel like dancing!!
