TVLine Items: Last Week Tonight Video, Boris Kodjoe on Code Black and More

Attention, all Last Week Tonight haters: John Oliver wants you for his latest marketing campaign.

HBO on Friday unveiled a promo and poster for the late-night series’ third season, in which the host embraces some of his most harsh criticism from Seasons 1 and 2.

You’ll notice that the cruel words come from certain celebrities and political leaders that Oliver has lambasted, including Ecuadorian president Rafael Correa and, of course, Donald Trump.

Last Week Tonight kicks off its 35-episode Season 3 on Sunday, Feb. 14, at 11/10c on HBO, but you can get a glimpse at the show’s return above and below.

Last Week Tonight Season 3

Ready for more of today’s newsy nuggets? Well…

* Boris Kodjoe (The Last Man on Earth) is set to join Code Black in the recurring role of Dr. Will Campbell, a suave but arrogant surgeon who ends up competing with Raza Jaffrey’s Dr. Hudson. He will first appear on the Feb. 3 episode (which would seem to foretell the fate of his Last Man character, who was last seen flatlining in the fall finale).

* Katie Aselton will once again work with The League co-star (and real-life husband) Mark Duplass on the second season of Togetherness, where she will recur in an undisclosed role, Deadline reports.

* The 21st Annual Critics’ Choice Awards announced a slew of presenters for the Jan. 17 ceremony (airing at 8/7c, A&E/Lifetime/LMN). The lineup includes Anthony Anderson, Aziz Ansari, Shiri Appleby, Ken Jeong, John Stamos, Sir Patrick Stewart, Sharon Stone, Justin Theroux, Tracee Ellis Ross and Constance Zimmer.

* New X-Files promo. Enough said.
