As far as first guest choices, John Oliver and company are making a bold statement by not interviewing any of Oliver’s old friends or a big name or some cross-section of the two. Instead, Oliver is setting the tone for Last Week Tonight premiering this Sun. at HBO by having a former NSA director General Keith Alexander (Ret.) sit down and chat with him.
A choice like this definitely feels like Oliver is truly at the helm of the show and we can’t wait to see what Oliver gets away with in a few days.
