The satirical news-anaylsis series recently took home a Writers Guild Award for Best Comedy/Variety (Including Talk) series.

Earlier this month, before Last Week Tonight‘s Season 2 premiere in January, Oliver told reporters that he enjoys an unprecedented level of latitude at the premium cabler.

“We can make the show fit the story we want to tell,” he said, adding with a laugh, “It’s kind of a paralyzing level of freedom.”

    Clearly, someone smart at hbo went “lock it down” in case comedy central drove a dump truck of money to Oliver’s house.

    Now if only they could undo the cancellations of Carnivale and Deadwood and Rome from years ago, I would be happy.

    Great news! This show is so well written and I love the “How is this still a thing” segment. John Oliver is comedy God.
