    The very first episode after the strike ends should be on why the strike happened, why it was the right thing to do, and why more working people need to unite in solidarity.

    I'm very glad John is in solidarity with the writers, we miss him but it's good and in line with his previous actions that he's not crossing the picket line!

      I was honestly just thinking "What happened to John?" I completely forgot that the stroke would be putting the show on hiatus. I miss the weekly deep dive into topics I'd not normally consider, but support the strike 100%

    As much as I miss this show, I want fair payment for writers even more. Besides, every season John Oliver does something so expensively ridiculous and over-the-top that you can’t help but enjoy the shirt out of it. Imagine what the show will do after being on strike for months.

      @Joe Laisure I take it you've never written a script, let alone multiple scripts before. Even with a team, meeting deadlines and working in a limited time frame can be mentally taxing.

    • kristenVEVO

    • Hexxagone
      Hexxagone 3 개월 전 +5

      The work they do? you mean like rebooting TV shows and movies that should have been left alone? or hating the source material they sign up for to adapt? or shoving political messages down everyone's throat? or writing a script about a preestablished book or game and making it unrecognizable from the original? Most writers don't deserve a penny more

    • kristenVEVO
      kristenVEVO 3 개월 전 +57

      @Hexxagone dude thats usually not the fault of the writers, its the fault of the executives that make the final decisions on this stuff. movies suck these days because theyre forcing writers to make media thats as bland, formula fitting, and mass appealing as possible in order to drive profits and not invest on creative risks that might flop at the box office. when profit is the sole motivator behind art, the art will always suck no matter what. the fact that writers dont get paid well is one of the leading ways that executives maximize their own profits, benefiting off the backs of creatives that they feel are easily replacable if they get too out of the box. if writers got paid what theyre actually worth, we would see a boom in creativity because writers would no longer feel as pressured to fit the formula just to keep their jobs.

      @Matthew10950 What problem who you have with unions. If there is a thing you don't like It is usually not the writers fault they don't decide the way the overall story will go the just work on the specifics of the script.

    • Stella
      Stella 3 개월 전 +85

      @Wildblack Absolutely!
      Also, what kind of an argument is that - people should not get to unionize, because they don't do stuff I agree with ALL the time? @Matthew10950, you do understand that this is for all the writers, including those of your favorite current series, don't you?

    • Garagantua

      They couldn't accept it without screwing themselves over. It's not just about the pay, it's also about the protections for future writers against things like ChatGPT doing half the work so they don't get credited.

      Man, I just looked if there's any news on the strike and apparently it's now day 52 and still nobody's really talking to each other (as in, the studios with the writers). I also seem to really hear absolutely nothing about the strike and have to actively search for the very sparse coverage, if I want to learn anything new. Maybe it's just me, but I feel the 2007/08 strike was a much bigger deal in its coverage. Maybe because Late Night shows and scripted shows were still a much bigger deal 15 years ago?
      In any case, I hope this gets resolved soon and the studios meet the WGA's demands (which really aren't exactly outlandish).
      Edit: for those wondering: the 2007/08 strike lasted 100 days.

    Being from outside the US, and having no idea about the writers' strike (completely OOTL here), I was genuinely concerned about HBO or some other business daddy having cancelled this show for whatever reason. This situation sucks and the writers absolutely deserve to get paid, but I have to say I feel a bit relieved. Hopefully they get back as soon as possible, mondays are much more tolerable when I get to see their shenanigans.

    I'm now legitimately concerned that this writers' strike is going to undermine John's ability to challenge Disney's Mickey Mouse trademark filing...
    Come on, -HBO- (sorry, "Max"): pay your writers what they're worth.

      That's fine. It's not HBO: It's just TV anyway.

      I’m pretty sure HBO is still the entity, rather Discovery. Either way, it’s only the streaming network that is called MAX.

      Let's remember that the writers' strike is not exclusive to HBO/Discovery/Max.

      @MatzeHali As I understood it, every episode that had Steamboat Mickey in the title cards or trotted him out on stage eroded Disney's inevitable claim that the Mouse was inexorably and exclusively tied to the Disney corporation and was thus entitled to trademark protection even once the copyright protection expired.

    I continue to remain in solidarity with the worker's strike. I look forward to the day when your hilarity returns, but I want to see your staff paid fairly and with proper compensation. And I sincerely hope you stand with them as well, as I believe that you do.
    We'll be looking forward to the next chapter once it comes around.

    Man I wish this show was on air rn. So much happening. I was so stoked seeing this notification, but it is just a trailer. A great trailer, don’t get me wrong. I’m glad they’re honoring the strike but my god do I miss watching him weekly. Especially with all the posts happening across Reddit.

  • The Dutchess of Cornville 🌽

    We love you, John, and all the writers you work with on your show are incredibly talented and deserve to be paid a good wage (like everyone does). We will continue to support you and the quality content you and your team put out.
    See you soon (we all hope!) ❤❤❤

    Never cross a picket line! I hope the strike leads to fair pay and recognition of their work. Streaming services and studios' exploitation of loopholes by cancelling shows just before residuals are starting to come due, creating crunch writers rooms, and hiring non-union writers as scabs needs to stop. I have a dozen great DVD box sets from the past 15 years sitting here, HBO/Netflix/Amazon/Disney/Hulu/whoever else, I can wait all year.

      ​@James Randolph "And you might wonder why I spent a whole episode on air bud with a deep analysis of that film without any larger point. Oh I'll tell you why..... I'll tell you specifically why....... BECAUSE THERE AIN'T NO RULES AGAINST IT"
      When you look at the whole episode that moment is so genius at the end 😂 also when he made the whole audience believe an NBA player was coming up and the camera panned to the entrance then the music stopped and he was like "Of course he isn't actually here. We're not getting an NBA player to talk about air bud. No way they accept What show you thought this was?"
      I died 😂

      Hell even the website exclusive on Chuck E. Cheese was a great supplemental episode that I'm sure not enough people watched because it simply wasn't on here or HBO/Max.

      More likely strikes in general, as there have been plenty both successful and unsuccessful recently, and the Rail Strike may be being reopened soon.

      All depends on how it turns out doesn’t it. If the strikers don’t win, business daddy might make them act like it never happened

    • sighduck
      sighduck 3 개월 전 +6

      @Michaela (MicZiC) I think it's more likely to be covered by LWT if it fails because the show mostly only covers depressing things/things that still need action to be positive, part of why I think it'll be a general episode about Strikes, because I assume the Writers strike will be successful, and they already covered Unions, not long before the strike.

    • Jeremy Owens
      Jeremy Owens 3 개월 전 +3

      @Michaela (MicZiC) 1) When has he ever listened to Big Business Daddy; sure, he'll listen to Daddy Driver, but not who we're talking about...
      2) The Actors strike was already authorized (by a vote with 97.91% in favor) and should start next week (maybe the following since the 1st is next Saturday; contract expires on 30 Jun at midnight)- that's gonna put a damper in studio "keep working, ignore the strike" plans
      3) The Teamsters and IATSE are refusing to cross the picket lines, and I'm seen them at some of the events/lines already (as well as SAG members)
