    It's a shame he didn't use his platform to raise awareness of the tragic Koala Clymydia epidemic.

  • Riot Breaker (Sep 23, 2018)

    Or donate to the last blockbuster

  • Butt Why?? (Sep 20, 2018)

    The correct spelling is Coala Clammedia.

  • Rahma Hagoog (Sep 17, 2018)

    am a fan of every single nominee but well deserved JonhPS: just glad that Jimmy Fallon wasn't nominated!

  • Lisa A Johnson (Sep 21, 2018)

    S. Lee-I take it back, you are HILARIOUS....hilariously stupid. YOUR the one disagreeing AND inciting....so shut the fuck up.

  • S. Lee (Sep 21, 2018)

    +Lisa A Johnson First, you're not disagreeing, you're inciting. Second, if this is what you actually believe, that women aren't capable of humour, and that women should be slaves (including you), then yes, ma'am, you do need help. Because you are not in touch with objective realtity. Your so-called "opinion" is morally and objectively wrong and you LOVE the fact that this oppositional belief that you hold bothers the world. You feel prpud of yourself for some sick reason. And since this sexis...

  • Huh? Talk about this year's diverse nominees! They even nominated a parrot. And it won! Kudos John!

    Zazu ftw!

  • justin regalado (Sep 22, 2018)

    Toucans! such bird racism!

  • AD AM (Sep 18, 2018)

    Samantha Bee, Trevor Noah, Stephen Colbert, John Oliver. DAMN THE DAILY SHOW PRODUCED GREAT TALENTS.EDIT: There I edited it, i hope you're happy

  • JB Tiamson (Mar 25, 2019)

    Now add Hasan Minhaj aka "The last correspondent hired under Jon Stewart".

  • Andrew Olson (Sep 25, 2018)


  • Joon Yi (Sep 17, 2018)

    4 of the 7 nominees were John Stewart proteges. Their shows are all similar in a way but John Oliver's show really goes deep into the issues

  • Wong Jinhong (Feb 19, 2019)

    It's Jon Stewart my friend. Alphabet matters

  • noon (Sep 22, 2018)

    Soggy Ramen That doesnt really matter though, doesnt it? Saying that Americans suck(thats not what I am saying) doesnt necessarily mean the country he/she is from rocks. I think the commenter was condescending as hell, but I dont see a “of course, my country has far superior shows” in the comment.

  • Tianwei Gu (Sep 17, 2018)

    Academy of John Stewart

  • Cory L. O'Hanlon (Sep 21, 2018)

    Well played.

  • Aykin Cakaloz (Sep 21, 2018)

    Seriously, almost all of these shows are a direct branching off of what Jon Stewart created. It is amazing how much impact he had on the future of TV political comedy

  • Sunil Prajapati (Sep 17, 2018)

    You were supposed to bring a show this week, not be in the Emmy

  • Gateaux Q (Sep 20, 2018)

    Fucking British Milhouse does it again

  • Ayanee (Sep 20, 2018)

    +Matthew i love the show but last month tonight is accurate af 😂

  • Ainun Nazieb (Sep 18, 2018)

    Last Week Tonight is the Game of Thrones of late night show..

  • Hurlay (Sep 21, 2018)

    It's all that dragon money

  • Scars Unseen (Sep 20, 2018)

    Or is Game of Thrones the Last Week Tonight of fantasy political thrillers with dragons and incest?

  • Messofanego (Sep 18, 2018)

    The research John Oliver's team does outweighs the other shows, Sam Bee's show comes close. Well deserved!

  • Ádám Arany (Oct 5, 2018)

    https://www.102tube.com/video/PUU4DwOkFPM/video.html this is the link to my favourite song. it's sooo great, isn't it?

  • Brianne P (Oct 5, 2018)

    +Ádám Arany I was done, like three times I was finished. I'm not going to have a conversation on someone's comment.

  • cc22ful (Sep 18, 2018)

    I don't get how James Corden was nominated instead of Seth Meyers. They kind of made up for it though by not nominating Fallon.

  • Leonardo Domonik (Sep 21, 2018)

    Seth Meyers is sooooo boring

  • Matthew (Sep 20, 2018)

    Haha, awesome comment
