LAST WEEK TONIGHT WITH JOHN OLIVER
March 15, 2020  | By David Bianculli

HBO, 11:20 p.m. ET

 
On Friday, Bill Maher announced on his Real Time with Bill Maher show on HBO, which he performed with one guest appearing by satellite (the others showed up in person) and with his staffers serving as the only studio audience, that it would be his last show for a while, until the coronavirus concerns subsided a bit. And even before tonight’s Last Week Tonight with John Oliver is taped or televised, John Oliver has let it be known that tonight’s program will be a “shortened episode” – and that, after that, Last Week Tonight will be going dark for a while. So after tonight, at least for a while, it’ll be even harder to laugh at adversity.
