What should Last Week Tonight with John Oliver fans expect to see tonight on HBO? More of the same.

Season 8 has been rolling since the end of July. John Oliver and company have delivered four consecutive new episodes since July 25, coming during a time when most late-night TV shows are on hiatus.

That trend will continue on Sunday night. There will be a brand new episode of Last Week Tonight with John Oliver. But fans really won’t want to miss this one. After tonight, Last Week Tonight goes on a two-week-long break.

As always, it’s difficult to say exactly what will be tonight’s top story. Given the timeline of when the story broke last week, the situation in Afghanistan wasn’t covered. But expect Oliver to cover some of what’s going on tonight.

How to watch Last Week Tonight with John Oliver

With a little extra time to think about things, John Oliver should have a lot to say about Afghanistan tonight. Fans should anticipate the HBO late-night host to give a very honest assessment of America’s role in the turmoil.

As mentioned above, this will be the last time to see Last Week Tonight before a two-week hiatus. Here are the details you need to know for tonight:

Date: Sunday, August 22
Start Time: 11:00 p.m. ET
TV Channel: HBO
