Late-night shows were hit the most during the global pandemic and seeing them bloom once again is a sight to behold. Many shows have had their comebacks and they all are shot remotely. Last Week Tonight with John Oliver too will make a comeback this month.
Talking about other shows who have aired the past week including The Late Show with Stephen Colbert, The Tonight Show Starring Jimmy Fallon, and Late Night with Seth Meyers were shot remotely and are back again on their schedule. Jimmy Fallon’s show airs at 11:34:30 p.m. ET.
With shows airing this week, we have an addition to the list. The show Last Week Tonight with John Oliver is all set to air tonight August 15th, which will be its first episode after the long summer hiatus. Three new episodes are also scheduled to air after the Sunday episode which makes a total of four episodes in a row.
John Oliver is a great writer. He has a distinct tone of writing and expressing his views which are often unbiased and hit the target right in their face. This straightforward tone and writing attracted HBO and thus he got the chance to feature on the HBO channel with his show, “Last Week Tonight with John Oliver.”
The show is hosted by John Oliver who is a British-American comedian, writer, producer, political commentator, actor, and television host. The show is known for its satirical tone which makes the show quite funny. The show talks about news, politics, and current events from the past seven days with some dark humor jokes. He even got an Emmy for his work as a writer on “The Daily Show With Jon Stewart.”
Recently all news channels are reporting about the recapturing of Kabul by the Taliban in Afghanistan but don’t expect John Oliver to express his views on the same. They will be airing episodes shot last Saturday from their void tape and thus will not include any recent news.
Several other news can come on his table tonight can be the COVID-19 rates in Florida where positive tests are 116,689, President Joe Biden’s infrastructure bill called the Build Back Better plan and plans to spend more than $ 2 trillion, and New York Governor Andrew Cuomo’s resignation after an inquiry found that he sexually harassed multiple women.
How can you access the news tonight and where can you find it?
There is no doubt that people love this show. Even though the news is 7-days stale, people still prefer watching the show due to John’s satirical depiction of everyday events. The show today even after the pandemic pulls a lot of audiences and all those credits go to John. It’s no doubt that the show, again and again, wins the Emmy and other awards and gets nominated in many other categories.
The show will air tonight on 15 th August 2021, Sunday and even though it would not be updated news it still would be pretty amazing to watch John Oliver. Talking about the timing and the scheduled channel the show will air at 11:01 p.m. ET. So if the show doesn’t air at its original scheduled time of 11.00 pm EST do not get worried. The makers of the show confirmed on Twitter that they would be airing a minute late tonight. The show will be aired on HBO’s official channel and if you don’t have the time to watch it on your TV you can also stream it on HBO Max.
