New, 26 comments

John Oliver returned to late night comedy on Sunday with the premiere of Last Week Tonight, his long-awaited news program on HBO. And he was in good form. In the course of his first half hour, the host addressed a week of controversy surrounding America's newly prominent racists and endeavored to make Americans care about the vastly important Indian election, setting himself apart from most American broadcasts in a truly refreshing way. He even took former NSA director Keith Alexander to task for the agency's bulk surveillance program, calling it "The only agency in government that really listens." Check it out.
