John Oliver’s Last Week Tonight has taken unorthodox steps to reach the President, buying stealthily educational ad time during the Fox News shows Trump is known to watch. The same was true of Oliver filling the advertiser void from Bill O’Reilly’s show with a sexual harassment PSA, one a cable affiliate actually took him up on.

Another day, another Trump administration gaffe worthy of Arrested Development or Veep. It’s the latter’s case this time out, as Press Secretary Sean Spicer’s insane Hitler gaffe gets the Veep closing credits treatment, and even the cast agrees it’s too on-point.

How do you end a show in which the end of the world has already happened? It’s a question I’ve been wondering since the very beginning of The Leftovers, a series about the search for answers and explanations where there are none, about coping with the past and learning how to survive in the present, but rarely, if ever, looking towards a future. For the characters of the HBO series, The Sudden Departure – a Rapture-like event that saw 140 million people suddenly vanish from Earth – was the final page of their stories. Some drowned in misery, some sought refuge in violent blackout, others joined cults. Damon Lindelof’s mysterious post-apocalyptic drama has been about the tireless search for meaning as much as it is about finding peace in ambiguity. In its third and final season, the series is weaving those together more ambitiously than ever.
