John Oliver Reveals What He Hates About 'Last Week Tonight'

Having your own late night talk show seems like a sweet deal, but John Oliver revealed to David Letterman that that isn't always the case.

The "Last Week Tonight" host says that when he worked on "The Daily Show" it was easy to move on from failed jokes because there was a new show the next day, but now he has a whole week to "wallow in a bathtub of self loathing."

In addition to that, Oliver absolutely hates seeing ads for his show, saying, "I don't really have a face you walk past and think 'Oh, good. I'm glad that's there.'"

Watch the video above to see why having your own show is really more like having a "Jacuzzi of regret."

"Last Week Tonight" airs Sunday at 11:00 p.m. ET on HBO.
"Late Show with David Letterman" airs weeknights at 11:35 p.m. ET on CBS.
