During the episode on Sunday Last week tonight with John Oliver, The just-named host took advantage of the opportunity to poke fun at Geopardy!Compare it to the show’s struggle to find a suitable host for a nasty immigrant scandal in Del Rio.
Oliver, who recently won Emmy, is known for weaving ridiculous one-liners into serious stories, often linking pop culture and politics.
“The administration’s record of immigrants, especially on the southern border, was so overwhelming that they were everywhere on the map this week. Many Haitians were released to the United States, but recently the earthquake and the president Thousands were sent back to the assassinated country, but there was no clear basis for how those decisions were made. “
After that, Oliver made a smooth and messy transition. Geopardy! Saga referred to the show’s short-sighted employment and the subsequent dismissal of Mike Richards, followed by the controversy faced by temporary host Mime Bialick.
“And it’s not great when our process of deciding who will be released and who will be expelled is as unplanned as the process of finding a new host. Geopardy!.. And by the way, it’s been a great job so far, everyone. You avoided giving the man a job forever, and now we have someone undisputed, Mayim Bialik. Someone who thinks I’m a great costume that doesn’t have Google. “
Oliver mentions the history of Bierick’s stunningly terrible take, including her stance on the vaccine described in her book. Beyond the slingReleased in 2012, long before the new wave of vaccine skeptics caused by the coronavirus pandemic.
of Beyond the sling, Bialik claimed that her children were not vaccinated, but later revealed in a 2020 YouTube video that she had actually received the vaccination. In a recent interview with ABC News, Bialik confirmed that she and her family were completely vaccinated against Covid-19.
Biarik also faces a scrutiny of the misjudgment Op-Ed (written for the NY Times in 2017), which criticizes the woman who accused Harvey Waynestein of sexual assault. Yes.
Search for new things Geopardy! The host has faced a tremendous amount of obstacles so far, and Oliver’s joy is enormous. Three or more successors to his beloved ex-host Alex Trebeck approached Gig’s succession, but were only withdrawn by previous controversy (and to be completely honest), none of them especially to fans. It didn’t prove to be popular).
Mike Richards, a former executive producer of the show, was widely suspected of having essentially nominated himself for that position, but after the misogynist commentary from his 2014 podcast resurfaced. I resigned.
Ken Jennings, a temporary host of the show with Bialick, intends to be the new full-time host until his tasteless previous tweets are unearthed, including a 2014 joke. It is said that it was. .. Needless to say, Jennings didn’t get a job (in 2014, aggressive comedies were still very popular).
I don’t know which one is wrong. “Cancelled” due to tasteless tweets, podcast commentary, or NY Times Op-Ed. I think the latter is more authoritative.
Meanwhile, look for the perfect one Geopardy! The host will continue. Meanwhile, John Oliver is confident that he will continue to make jokes about the show whenever he has the opportunity.
