Last Week Tonight

The nightly talk shows have been at the front line of the entertainment world's attempts to figure out how socially-distanced productions can work, and the one show that seems to have improved under these circumstances is Last Week Tonight. Maybe it's because John Oliver's style of comedy just works better when his delivery isn't being interrupted by (often forced) applause breaks and cheers, but there's a lot to be said for this version of the show feeling like a very smart and funny friend is visiting your living room and just going off.
