Last Week Tonight with John Oliver

Winnipeg Free Press - Section G - - ENTERTAINMENT -

Star­ring John Oliver Sun­day on HBO Canada Check list­ings for time writ­ing time that air­ing weekly, rather than daily, will al­low.

“I have talked to (Ste­wart) a lot ... and I don’t think there’s a worry that it will be too sim­i­lar (to The Daily Show),” the 36-year-old na­tive of Birm­ing­ham, Eng­land, said dur­ing HBO’s por­tion of the U.S. net­works’ semi­an­nual press tour in Los Angeles. “You know, it’s me. And I am dif­fer­ent, so we’ll ap­proach things in a dif­fer­ent way. We’re go­ing to be on once a week, so we’ll have ex­tra time to have a dif­fer­ent per­spec­tive on things. The at­trac­tive thing about be­ing on at the end of the week is, you know, you can look back­wards and also for­ward at the week com­ing.” Be­cause of the cur­rent-events na­ture of the pro­gram, no pre­views were made avail­able for Last Week Tonight.
