Watch: John Oliver Salutes Bankrupt RadioShack on 'Last Week Tonight'

John Oliver made his highly anticipated return to HBO on Sunday night, kicking off the second season of “Last Week Tonight” with the same intellectual snark and giggly wit that has earned him so much popularity and acclaim over the last year. 

Fortunately for anyone who missed the new episode, HBO has released two of the night’s best segments online, both of which can be viewed below. The first features a mournful Oliver bidding farewell to RadioShack after the company filed for bankruptcy earlier this week, while the second is a classic 17-minute tirade against pharmaceutical companies and their billion dollar marketing strategies towards doctors. 

Check out these glorious new Oliver clips below:
