John Oliver has been making the interview rounds this week to promote his new HBO show “Last Week Tonight,” which premieres Sunday night at 11pmET.

And his show is getting clever on social.


Fellow HBO comic Bill Maher has leveraged social media during this season’s “Real Time” through his #flipadistrict. It will be interesting to see how Oliver’s weekly HBO show weaves in social elements.

Stay tuned.
