WASHINGTON, April 27, 2014 – I am accepting John Oliver as Britan’s apology for Piers Morgan. We can only say well done HBO and Mr. Oliver, well done.
Mr. Oliver has a fondness for the well placed swear word saying “I do love to curse. I love a well-placed ‘f—.’ A strategically placed ‘f—’ in a sentence is a work of art.”
‘Last Week Tonight with John Oliver’ presents a half-hour satirical look at the week in news, politics and current events and he might be looking at the success of The Colbert Report as a guide to how to spin the ridiculous. The show airs Sundays at 11:00 PM ET/P
For his first show, Oliver took on the ridiculousness of American Media, India’s elections – giving CNN a good punch in the nose in the process, took plenty of potshots at food commercials (Shredded Wheat it’s better than nothing) and encouraged watchers to not download stickers from his website and post photos to Twitter because that would be wrong 97.7% wrong.
Go to Oliver’s Facebook page to find the stickers.
Oliver also scored a very serious interview, which he treated without any hint of seriousness, with Gen. Keith Alexander (Ret.), his first since he retired as director of the National Security Agency and head of U.S. Cyber Command. And this show will be worth watching… while waiting from Game of Thrones to repeat!
