Tonight's Best TV
A Daily Guide to Notable Shows
After years as a Daily Show correspondent including a celebrated stint last summer as Jon Stewart's fill-in how will John Oliver host a weekly news program? However he wants, thank you very much. ''The aim is to try and keep it flexible,'' Oliver says. ''We don't necessarily have to have a rigid format. We're getting a little more flexibility in almost every area.'' Each week will feature a deep dive into one particular story, and his guests (when he has them) will skew more newsy than celebrity. ''It's not going to be ‘fake news' in the way that The Daily Show is presented, like a parody,'' Oliver says. ''I'm more interested in getting, say, [former CIA director] Leon Panetta than Brad Pitt. Which I guess puts me in, like, .5 percent of the planet. I'm not even sure Mrs. Panetta is as interested in that!''
Set in 1959 London, this series follows a troop of lady nurses as they struggle to keep up helping all of the many, many pregnant women in their town through their births. This sounds grosser than it is, we promise.
Will Gardner may be gone forever (rest in peace), but the guy who played him is directing this episode so it's kind of like having him back, right? Right?
Two words: Toga party. And they're not even in college!
