    I think John Oliver is hysterically funny. And I agree with him, about most things, most of the time. But, this is one of the dumbest and lamest videos, of Last Week Tonight, that I have ever seen. Only minimally funny. Kinda lame.

    Without the audience in the studio I have realised even more how his jokes became weak, basic and repetitive during time.

    John you are really dropping the ball on content and overall quality of information. I am a long time fan of your show and episodes like the 1950s flood act, sheriffs, prosecutors, and how police are not held responsible to just name a few were great content that really informed the viewers and brought up nonpartisan issues that are really really relevant, but now it seems like you are just like "trump is bad guy.... meh.... bad trumpie trumpie." Like I do not like Trump as much as the next freedom-loving American but please with this being a really flat episode about the juicy world of how and if sports are going to open up you missed some key points and ended with the marbles. How about supporting nontraditional sports athletes such as climbers who are practicing social distancing by being outdoors with maybe a crew of 4-10 people that can easily stay distant. The same goes for fishing, professional shooting, skiing, and bouldering (to just get the list started). A big flop with this and most of your most recent content that is very bias and quite skewed from being quality journalism.

    The fact that people feel "starved for content" just shows how spoiled and entitled so many Americans are. In this digital age, we sit on a practically limitless treasure trove of content. You cannot possibly even come close to exhausting that supply within your lifetime. There is *ALWAYS* something else to watch/read/play. You just need to get your mind out of the "anything that's not new is worthless" gutter. Thinking that you're starved for content in this day and age is like saying you're starving for food because you refuse to eat yesterday's leftovers. ...which probably actually is something that middle- and upper-class Americans with plenty of food say
