John Oliver Tackles Political Issues on his new HBO Show
After acting as a correspondent on "The Daily Show" for 7 1/2 years, British comedian John Oliver now has his own show on HBO, "Last Week Tonight." The show airs on Sunday nights with no one safe from Oliver's political satire. Yet, Oliver tackles issues of relevance like net neutrality, which he managed to present in a 13-minute rant where he pointed viewers toward the Federal Communications Commission's website to have the rule changed. The FCC had so much traffic after the show that they sent out tweets saying it was facing "technical difficulties."
