John and Jon Lead This Week’s Top 5 TV Clips on 5by

By Adam Flomenbaum 

5byIn this week’s installment of our partnership with 5by, the video discovery and messaging platform that curates the web’s best viral videos, we take a look at the top five videos of the week from the platform’s TV category. For background on the videos selected, Theo Tabah, 5by’s Head of Content:

Jon Stewart shocked viewers this week with his ‘big announcement’. Sadly, Jon will be leaving The Daily Show sometime near the end of 2015. Three words Jon; Please don’t go!

His old counterpart John Oliver returned with his second season of ‘Last Week Tonight’ and with his winning format, blew us all away, with disturbing information about why your Doctor might be prescribing the wrong medication for you. Seriously, you should check it out.


Conan decided to venture out and try a Korean spa with Walking Dead star Steven Yeun. Between the nude hugging and the head-to-toe skin scraping, it proved to be an outing I’ll probably pass up if the opportunity ever presents itself.

During the Grammy’s last weekend, Kanye pulled a Kanye and took the Internet by storm when Beck won album of the year. Although it’s been seen in GIF’s and Vine’s across the web, I felt the whole ordeal earned a top spot in this week’s videos.

Finally, the trailer (promo) for the second season of HBO’s Silicon Valley made it’s debut. Pretty stoked to see what the guys from Pied Piper have in store for us after watching this one.
