Trailer Announces When John Oliver’s Show Returns for Season 8
John Oliver’s Show Returns for Season 8:- It’s a dumb thing to wonder about, but ever since the Capitol attack, one of the things I’ve wondered is how Last Week Tonight with John Oliver will cover it.
I admit how strange it is that we look to a comedy for a deep dive on the news, but we have been that way for most of the century since The Daily Show with Jon Stewart endeavored to find the story between the stories—looking beyond a media narrative to see the social, political, and economic powers causing our current conflicts.
We’ll probably only have to wait a month for that story (unless something even more tragic and horrifying happens in the next month, which, let’s be honest, is completely in the realm of possibilities) as a new trailer for Last Week Tonight with John Oliver announces that the show will return on Sunday, February 14th.
The trailer shows highlights from last season, which is a good reminder that even without the benefit of an audience or their studio Last Week Tonight was still the best comedy program in the darkest times, and I doubt anything is going to slow them down.
The only ones they’re really competing with right now are themselves, and as long as they keep having outlandish ideas like trying to track down rat erotica and thirsting over Adam Driver on the regular, they should be just fine.
Well, a thing or two has happened since we’ve been away, but we’ll be back soon! See you on February 14th.
