    Last Week Tonight with John Oliver: Corporate Taxes  Season 5, Ep 8

    This week--
    • The Comey interview, which happened after LWT taped.
    • The FBI raids Michael Cohen's office, home and hotel room. And a bunch of other stuff happened as well.
    • And Now: Ari Melber, Rap Genius
    • Main story: Corporate Taxes, the lengths that companies go to in order to avoid them, and how they stand to profit under Trump's budget.
    • And Now: Ari Melber, Rap Genius, Volume Two: Just Jay-Z Quotes
    • There are two remaining Blockbuster Video locations remaining in the United States, last remnants of a vast empire, and one of them is in Alaska. Last Week Tonight bought Russell Crowe's leather jockstrap from the movie Cinderella Man at auction, among a lot of other stuff. How do these two facts concide? Well, let's just say the store should get in touch with LWT within the 48 hours after airing.
    The main story is on YouTube here (16 minutes). [more inside]

    Last Week Tonight with John Oliver: Stupid Watergate  Season 4, Ep 13

    It's a very special episode of Last Week Tonight that, for once, actually focuses on the previous week's events, as the Trump Administration continues to be mired in scandal. John Oliver takes a stab at answering these questions:
    • What The Fuck Is Going On?
    • How Big A Deal Is This?
    • Where Do We Go From Here? and
    • Is This Real Life?
    YouTube (24m) In addition to answering those questions, there is And Now: Yet Another Look At Whatever The Fuck Is Happening On WCBS 2 News At 11, and a severely abbreviated Main Story concerning the TSA. (More on that last part....) [more inside]

    Last Week Tonight with John Oliver: Dialysis Clinics  Season 4, Ep 12

    New events worthy of mention:
    • Trump again. The fallout from his firing of FBI Director James Comey, and the many problematic things about it.
    • Congressfolk's continued denial over the situation mentioned above as every functioning adult in the nation gets steadily angrier about their refusal to do anything about it. "When you've got the Presidential equivalent of a five-year-old shitting on the salad bar at Ruby Tuesdays, at some point you stop blaming the five-year-old and you start blaming the people who are not stopping him."
    • Back to New Zealand's ruling National Party's appropriation of Eminem music. New Zealand PM Bill English heard about Last Week's Last Week Tonight mention of the court case and said, "some of the stuff I've seen he does isn't very funny." LWT, in retaliation, found an actual Facebook post Bill English made, with pictures: "Cooked dinner for the family last night - like if you agree with tinned spaghetti on pizza!"
    • And Now: A Series of Terrible Pizzas That New Zealand Prime Minister Bill English Would Probably Enjoy
    • Main Story: Kidney dialysis clinics, particularly those operated by DaVita, and the dangerous extents many go through to save costs, like rushing patients through dialysis, and the deeply terrible methods some employ to keep customers using their services and not seek out life-saving transplants. DaVita has had to settle nearly a billion dollars to settle lawsuits over the past five years, while their CEO compares his business (willingly!) to Taco Bell. LWT offers a commercial for Taco Bell stating how it's not a proper business model for dialysis clinics. YouTube (24m)
