John Oliver Bites Hand With Snipe At HBO Max: “It’s Not HBO. It’s TV”

John Oliver Bites Hand With Snipe At HBO Max: “It’s Not HBO. It’s TV”
John Oliver helpfully provided his corporate overlords with a slogan for one of their big new ventures: “HBO Max: It’s Not HBO. It’s Just TV.”

The joke – aimed specifically at HBO’s upcoming streaming service that will include, in addition to original programming, classic TV fare, or as the host of HBO’s Last Week Tonight With John Oliver said on Sunday’s episode, “reruns of Big Bang Theory, reruns of Friends and reruns of Fresh Prince of Bel Air.”

Oliver’s snipe arrived early in last night’s show during a monologue segment about the NBA’s ongoing contretemps with China, a situation sparked when Houston Rockets general manager Daryl Morey tweeted his support for the anti-government protesters in Hong Kong, a tweet Morey quickly deleted, but not quickly enough to appease Chinese political and business sectors.

In his report, Oliver – who, like David Letterman before him,

HBO’s John Oliver Slams New Streamer HBO Max: ‘It’s Not HBO, It’s Just TV’
John Oliver’s “Last Week Tonight” has won HBO four consecutive Emmy Awards for Outstanding Variety Talk Series since its debut in April 2014, which means Oliver is probably the only one who could get away with publicly bashing HBO parent company WarnerMedia’s new streaming platform HBO Max. During the October 13 episode of “Last Week Tonight,” Oliver took aim at the new streaming service. HBO Max is launching next year and will join a crowded field of new streaming platforms such as Disney+, Apple TV+, and NBCUniversal’s service Peacock.

“Have you heard about HBO Max?” Oliver asked viewers. “Looking to add another app and monthly charge to watch things? HBO Max has you covered. It’s going to have all your favorites: Re-runs of ‘The Big Bang Theory,’ re-runs of ‘Friends,’ re-runs of ‘The Fresh Prince of Bel Air.’ You can pay for all of those through HBO max.
