That was a brilliant segment, and more than enough to elevate the first edition of a show that doesn't have to be in quite such a rush. Enjoy yourself a little more, John Oliver. Take your foot off the accelerator and stop speeding.

Is Last Week Tonight a news program or a satire of a news program? Right now, we're a little confused, but regardless of labels, the show stands out as an interesting addition to late night.

[John] Oliver himself is always worth watching, and there's every reason to think he'll become more inventive as the series goes on.
