John Oliver’s Complicated Fun Connects for HBO

David Carr, writing for The New York Times:

Yet here we are, at the end of Mr. Oliver’s first season with “Last Week Tonight” — he will return in February — and the show has been a smash, with strong ratings, a dedicated fan base and a series of clips on YouTube that have melted the Internet. He helped drive attention to the debate on net neutrality, and last week, President Obama urged the Federal Communications Commission to stand tall on that basic principle.

My only exposure to Last Week Tonight has been through the aforementioned YouTube clips, but from what little I’ve seen it looks like a brilliant show.
