HBO Renews John Oliver’s Last Week Tonight

Posted by at 10:58 am on September 12, 2017

HBO has renewed Last Week Tonight With John Oliver through 2020. The renewal for Oliver comes a week after HBO extended its another comedy-current events show, Real Time With Bill Maher, through 2020.

Last Week Tonight debuted on HBO in 2014, and has drawn strong critical praise since for its host’s satirical take on news, politics, and cultural issues. The show has been nominated for eight Primetime Emmy awards, and won two Creative Arts Emmys last weekend. Last year it won three Primetime Emmys, including for outstanding variety talk series.

An alum of The Daily Show, Oliver gained prominence filling in for the Comedy Central series’ former host Jon Stewart during Stewart’s leave of absence in 2013.
