HBO’s John Oliver Show Gets Two More Years

HBO has given John Oliver’s satirical Sunday-night program “Last Week Tonight” a two season renewal, keeping the show on the network through 2017.

The show had a 24-episode first season in 2014, an order that was expanded to a 35-episode second season which began airing earlier this month. Both the ordered third and fourth seasons are expected to consist of 35 episodes each.

The move also ends speculation that the British comic would succeed Jon Stewart at Comedy Central’s “The Daily Show” where Oliver made his name on TV.
