HBO was definitely expecting that Last week tonight with John Oliver would be a successful TV show, but what happened in its first two seasons has greatly exceeded everybody’s expectations, even John Oliver’s.
If two or three years ago his name was only selectively known among Americans, he is now one of the most influential people in television. The courage and cutting edge honesty with which he presents the stories on his show make them absolutely mind blowing.
The TV show airs on Sunday evenings on HBO and it is supposed to include short presentations of the most important events of the week that is just about to end. But John Oliver manages to point out the core of the week’s highlights by using incredibly witty remarks and comments. Watching the news has literally never been so fun, nor so moving for that matter.
John Oliver has managed to do something that many people on television haven’t been able to. He has got America to care and to actively contribute to the improvement of some of its most pressing issues. This is currently known as “the John Oliver effect” and it is one of the most amazing phenomena in media today.
