“Last Week Tonight with John Oliver” found a new and hilarious way to take down “The Dr. Oz Show” in its June 22 episode.
John Oliver criticizes Dr. Oz for the questionable claims he makes on his talk show in order to flesh out all of its 870 episodes. He offers some other solutions for Oz to “engage viewers without recommending any unregulated products that could potentially induce diabetes,” and it’s fantastic.
Way No. 1 to engage viewers? Have “Game of Thrones” author George R.R. Martin Skype in from his writing office in Santa Fe, N.M. Martin actually appears on “Last Week Tonight,” joking that he just “killed three of your favorite characters” — though he wouldn’t say whether one was Arya or not.
Also appearing on the segment is a cute puppy, some women in skimpy dresses throwing wine at each other, and a tap-dancing Steve Buscemi. Keep fighting the good fight, Oliver.
