If you’re like me, you enjoy ending your weekend with the unique mix of humor and horrors found in each episode of Last Week Tonight. John Oliver’s razor ship wit and penchant for bizarre comedy have a way of making the daily atrocities of the world seem somewhat palatable. Unfortunately, it looks like we’re going to need to find a different way to unwind this week.
At the end of last week’s episode, Oliver noted that Last Week Tonight was taking a one-week hiatus. The bad news is that there’s no new episode this week (Sunday, March 20). The good news? The show will be back before you know it. When exactly does Last Week Tonight return with new episodes? Here’s everything you need to know.
