Season 5 of Last Week Tonight With John Oliver premieres tonight on HBO, from 11:02 – 11:33 p.m. ET/PT, though the designated time slot is 11 – 11:30 p.m. ET/PT. According to WLTX19, the new season will feature a total of 30 episodes and the show was recently renewed through a seventh season in 2020. As for how Oliver and the show keeps ratings up and viewers watching, he recently told the NY Times that, “When we take a position, we try to keep people on board who might disagree, so that at least they can watch our thought process. We don’t want to be another haranguing voice, which turns people off.”

John Oliver won his second consecutive Emmy for Outstanding Variety Talk Series in September 2017, according to NBC Chicago. When it comes to what he’s learned from doing his show, Oliver tells the LA Times, “The big lessons are less about the show that you see than the machine that produces that show. How you staff up, how you keep people interested. Those are the harder tricks.
