In order to try and build up buzz for the new show, HBO has out the entire first episode of Jon Olver’s new show Last Week Tonight on YouTube that you can see here. It seems to be similar to The Daily Show in style. To his credit, Oliver covered the Indian election currently going on, something ignored by much American media, and he excoriated them for it. He also covered the POM Wonderful v. Coca-Cola Supreme Court case in which there are no good guys.
Jon Oliver also interviews the recently retired NSA director Keith Alexander. It is an interesting interview, humorous, not hostile, but more probing than many that are conducted by the mainstream media.
You can see the extended interview with Alexander below.
