On this week’s episode of Last Week Tonight, host John Oliver took a look at gerrymandering, “one of the few remaining types of science in which the Republican party currently believes.”
Last Week Tonight with John Oliver is finally back, and, like all of us, Oliver is clearly resentful that Donald Trump’s disastrous first month has prevented him from focusing on anything else.

On Sunday night’s episode of Last Week Tonight, John Oliver did a segment on this year’s third party candidates, a miserable lineup which includes a guy named Joe Exotic, who claims to run the “largest private zoo for tigers.” It also includes Jill Stein and Gary Johnson, who are not much more impressive.

In a recent profile, Full Frontal host Samantha Bee told Rolling Stone that she, unlike many Daily Show viewers, had never expected to take over Jon Stewart’s role—and that her acceptance of TBS’s Full Frontal offer came in part out of her own assumption that she would be passed over. “It didn’t seem like a reality to…
