John Oliver Had The Week Off So He Predicted The News Instead Of Taping A Show

Want the latest updates in politics, entertainment and sports? Too bad. John Oliver and company took the week off so there wasn't a new episode of "Last Week Tonight" on Sunday.

However, the host did take a moment to tape some news predictions last Sunday, and -- let's face it -- that's kind of what cable news does anyway, so who cares, right? Oliver released the video on "LWT's" youtube page at his usual 11:00 pm time slot last night.

Watch the clip above for such bombshells as, "An old rich man, last week, was accused of racism or sexism, and while trying to explain them away only seemed more racist," and "It turns out the NFL has been entirely gay all this time."
