The weekly comedy series hosted by the former 'The Daily Show with Jon Stewart' correspondent is called 'Last Week Tonight with John Oliver'.

John Oliver's new HBO show has got a premiere date and a name. The weekly comedy series is titled "Last Week Tonight with John Oliver" and will debut Sunday, April 27 at 11 P.M. ET/PT.

The half-hour show will take a satirical look at the week in news, politics and current events. Executive produced by Oliver, Tim Carvell, James Taylor and Jon Thoday, it has been ordered for 24 episodes in its first year. "It will be me making fun of things," Oliver said of the show back in January.

Oliver had been a Senior British Correspondent on "The Daily Show with Jon Stewart" since 2006 before he left the Comedy Central series last December to join HBO.

"I want to thank Comedy Central, and everyone at 'The Daily Show' for the best seven and a half years of my life. But most of all, I'd like to thank Jon Stewart. He taught me everything I know," he said when announcing his departure. "In fact, if I fail in the future, it's entirely his fault."
