Listen, we all know “Last Week Tonight With John Oliver” is one of the best shows on TV. There’s no doubt about that. You know it. I know. Even John Oliver has to know that. And in this security and sense of self, Oliver has come up with a uniquely charming, self-deprecating but also resiliently bold trailer — and poster — for his upcoming third season.
Clearly, none of the aggressively negative quotes used in the Season 3 promotional materials are true. But the fact that they’re accurately attributed and acknowledged by Oliver only gives the man himself more credibility. He’s willing to look through it all in his search for objective truth, even if that means sifting through some nasty comments about his own show.
So let us just add this: “Last Week Tonight with John Oliver” is tremendous, and we cannot wait until it returns February 14 for 35 more undoubtedly glorious episodes. Check out the trailer above and poster below.
