We don't know how many weeks this first season of "Last Week Tonight with John Oliver" is set to run, but we do know this -- it can't go on forever, as much as we want it to.  Oliver, more ore less, takes "The Daily Show" format here, tweaks it to play to his strengths, and then tosses in several curses because, heck, it's HBO.  Oliver has taken on a number of serious issues on the show and has actually, sometimes, gotten a response from those he has discussed.  The show, then, is a solid way to end your weekend.
