Oliver, like many other talk show hosts, is shooting episodes from home — but he likes to call it the “white void.” Ever since lockdown, the most recent episodes feature Oliver taking a deep dive into the coronavirus pandemic. He has been giving insight about how the Trump administration has been handling it and how it has impacted everyone — not only in the United States but all over the world.

Last Week Tonight has averaged 4.7 million across all platforms and plays for episodes of the new season.
