Last Week Tonight with John Oliver: Supreme Court (HBO)

Published on Oct 19, 2014

Cameras aren’t allowed in the Supreme Court, so most coverage of our most important cases looks like garbage.
We fixed that problem with real animals and fake paws. Feel free to take our footage (https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=tug71…) and reenact cases on your own.

John Oliver Playing Supreme Court Audio Over Footage Of Dogs Is The Justice America Needs

This may just be the best thing since cats learned to play piano.

The Supreme Court doesn’t allow cameras during oral arguments, and Justice Antonin Scalia says that’s because short segments that don’t properly portray the arguments would be presented to the public.

Well, John Oliver finally has a solution.

Watch the full hilarious video to hear the audio footage synced with these dogs. 

Try not to become a man of success, but rather try to become a man of value.

We are kicking off the work week with the Trona Pinnacles, one of the most unique landscapes in the California Desert.

The area consists of more than 500 tufa (calcium carbonate) pinnacles rising from the bed of the Searles Dry Lake basin. These tufa spires, some as high as 140 feet, were formed underwater 10,000 to 100,000 years ago when Searles Lake formed a link in an interconnected chain of Pleistocene lakes stretching from Mono Lake to Death Valley.

When visiting this area you will understand why more than 30 movies and commercials are filmed here every year. Ideally suited for science fiction backdrops Star Trek V, Tim Burton’s Planet of the Apes and Battlestar Galactica were all shot here.

Ryan Murphy & His 'Glee' Co-Creators Get Fox Series Order For Comedic Horror Anthology Series 'Scream Queens'

American Horror Story meets Glee. In their first big move on the scripted side at Fox, Fox TV Group chairmen Dana Walden and Gary Newman have given a 15-episode straight to series order to one of their most trusted creators at 20th Century Fox TV, Ryan Murphy. With Glee wrapping its run on Fox, the network has ordered comedy-horror anthology Scream Queens, from Glee creators Murphy, Brad Falchuk and Ian Brennan. This marks the second straight-to-series order for an anthology series for Murphy and Falchuk on the heels of FX greenlighting an American Crime Story spinoff from the duo’s hugely successful horror anthology series American Horror Story.

The first installment of Scream Queens revolves around a college campus which is rocked by a series of murders. 20th Century Fox Television and Murphy’s studio-based Murphy Television produce, with Murphy, Falchuk, Brennan creating as well as exec producing with Dante Di Loreto.

“I knew I wanted to work with Brad and Ian again on something comedic, and we are having a blast writing SCREAM QUEENS,”said Murphy. “We hope to create a whole new genre – comedy-horror – and the idea is for every season to revolve around two female leads. We’ve already begun a nationwide search for those women, as well as 10 other supporting roles, and we’re very grateful to Dana and Gary for their enthusiastic support.”

“One of our top priorities at the network has been to get Ryan Murphy to create a new series for FOX.  We loved every element of the pitch for this show — the genre-bending concept, which blends true horror with big comedic moments; the diverse and unforgettable characters and reuniting the phenomenal creative team that delivered GLEE,” said Walden and Newman. “SCREAM QUEENS will go straight to series. It’s a huge commitment and an expression of our faith in Ryan. We are ecstatic to have him, along with Brad, Ian and Dante as our partners on this exciting ride.”
