Last Week Tonight

There’s no show tonight! So here’s an update on the car commercial we wrote for a local dealership earlier this year. Which, honestly, might be better than a show!
And finally, this one, for all the nanis out there!
This one, for any uncles who share too many memes:
And here’s that same video in Vietnamese!
There’s also this one, for fans of King Radio!
Or these, if it’s time to take some more serious action with your loved ones:
Is someone in your life sharing misinformation that was forwarded to them on the internet? Head to for more accurate morning blessings, like these!
Happy Indigenous Peoples' Day! And for those who are still celebrating that other holiday, here's this from 2014:
Good morning! Here’s our story from last night about how companies enable the spread of misinformation in immigrant diaspora communities:
West coast! The show starts now! It also started a few hours ago, in other parts of the country as well as on @hbomax, but that doesn’t make this any less of a start! There can be many starts!
East coast! The show starts now! Seeing as it’s 11pm on the dot and all ;) that’s right, we’re starting on time ;))) we’re not fishing for compliments, we’re just taking a very narrowly earned victory lap ;)))))))
Tonight’s show starts at 11pm! But we’re not going to tell you when it ends. Because, like life, a good episode of TV is about the journey, not the destination. Unless you have someone like, say, Jennifer Coolidge in your show. In that case, it’s rightfully about her.
A huge thank you to @DannyDeVito for helping us out with this week’s story about PFAS. Simply put, it was:
Here’s last night’s story about PFAS, a class of toxic chemicals which can turn into something called “devil’s piss” - enjoy!:
West coast! The show starts in one minute!!! Unless you already watched it on @hbomax. In which case, please don’t spoil the ending for people who still believe in “live” TV.
East coast! The show starts in six minutes!! Apologies if you rightfully assumed that sentence was going to end in “now!!!” That’s usually how these tweets go, and this whole “six minutes” thing is completely on us.
Tonight’s show starts at 11:06pm! 11:06. Not our first choice, time-wise. Nothing personal, it’s just got absolutely no ring to it. Nothing like 11:07. Which, of course, rhymes. Packs a little punch, etc. Say it out loud. 11:07! Yeah, 11:07. Now THAT is a time.
You have until Friday at 10:30pm ET to place a bid in our duck stamp auction! Visit
Here's last weekend's piece about the tense world of duck stamps:
and finally, this painting, which is really more of a call to action. We hope it will broker peace between Tim Taylor and Robert McBroom, two prominent figures in the duck stamp world. It is titled "Feuding Artist Handshake" and was painted by Roberto Parada.
this stunning and conceptually evocative painting, titled "Duck Hunting Hunters" by Josie Morway.
this masterpiece, "Duck Hunt" by Eric Joyner.
this work of art, "Duck with a Pearl Earring" by Omar Rayyan. It's a better take on an old classic.
at the auction, you'll find this piece titled "Duck Judges" by Bill Mayer, where ducks are, in fact, judges.
If you love ducks, wetland conservation, or tense artistic vendettas, one of these paintings could be for you! Place a bid at, all proceeds will be donated to the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service's Federal Duck Stamp Program.
And our piece on the 2020 election:
Our story from last year on voting by mail:
A segment from 2019 on voting machines:
Our piece from 2017 about gerrymandering:
And because efforts to undermine the vote are not new, here’s our piece from 2016 about voting:
Here’s last night’s story about the current state of voting rights in the U.S.:
West coast! If you haven’t already watched the show on HBO Max, you can, in fact, see it on live television right this instant! Ah, live TV. Like a shooting star. Blink, and you’ll miss it.
East coast! The show starts now! West coast! The show starts now for you, too -- if, that is, you watch us on HBO Max. Otherwise, we’ll see you in three hours!
We’re back with a new episode tonight at 11pm! Would be rude to come back *without* a new episode. You know what they say: never show up to a tv show empty-handed.
We are all out of bears! Thank you to everyone who bought one! If you’d still like to donate to help the people of Belarus, you can give to the GlobalGiving fund here:…
Here’s last night’s segment about Alexander Lukashenko, and, to a lesser extent, sweet little teddy bears:
West coast! The show starts now! With a live studio audience! We’re a little sad you couldn’t be there in person with us, but we understand, since you’re on the other side of the country and all.
East coast! The show starts now! Tune in to see how long it takes for John to start missing the void!!! Because you know what they say: The grass is always greener in the other studio that sometimes yells at you and refuses to laugh at your jokes.
We’re back tonight at 11pm, and we’ll be coming to you from our studio! Not to be confused with the void, which was also technically a studio, but in a much more hostile sense.
You are cordially invited to Last Week Tonight's Masterpiece Gallery Tour. We, the rats, and Wendy Williams all hope to see you there. Visit or for details.
Mike Slocumb, we have a great idea for your next commercial. It involves you, a banana slicer, and, hopefully, zero lawsuits. Get in touch!
Finally, our last show with The Void! Thank you to @HJBenjamin for helping us bring to life the absolute torment of prolonged existence within an empty white space. It was so fun. We’ll see you all in the studio on September 12th!
Here’s last night’s story about what’s happening in Afghanistan, how we got here, and what’s next:
West coast! The show starts now! So pull up a chair! Or whatever helps you get comfortable! Not a couch, that might be hard to pull. But you could maybe bring yourself to the couch, no pulling necessary! Or not! Whatever works!!!
East coast! The show starts now! Our last show until September 12th, and our last show inside the void. Big night for lasts!!!
Tonight’s show starts at 11pm! Then we’re off for two weeks!!! Because we may not be classically “attractive” but we ARE good at playing hard to get ;)
Down to our last two shows with this guy! He may not show it, but we think he’s gonna miss us, too.
Here’s our segment from last night about ransomware attacks, and how you can protect yourself and your internet-enabled sex toys from them:…
West coast! We’re not trying to be dramatic, but the show does start in ONE minute!!!
