Default Last Week Tonight with John Oliver

Hello MC

Please, please, can you screen Last Week Tonight sooner - instead of 1 week later. For a Satirical news show, a 1 week delay sort of kills the show, like it did with the Daily Show when it was delayed.

If part of the episodes are uploaded to Youtube after a day or so, there should be no problem allowing DSTV to screen it sooner.

Thanks

It was a dark and stormy night.
(But because his installation was sound, his DStv reception was perfect.)

Any topical satirical show loses impact after a delay of more than 2 days. It's really not worth the effort to show it a week later

Hi there,

Our scheduling and acquisitions department will do their best to see if they can get the series sooner.

It seems not - returning on 6 August - still just over a week after the US.
