Thank you, John Oliver!

When Jon Stewart took a break from "The Daily Show" to direct a movie, John Oliver took over for him. He did such an amazing job that HBO offered him his own show on Sunday night, "Last Week Tonight with John Oliver."

Viewers quickly realized that Oliver was not only providing laughs, he also devoted about 18 minutes of each show to investigative journalism. He manages to make "60 Minutes"-like pieces both informative and funny at the same time.

This week, he took on standardized testing and hit it out of the park! Here is that piece. (Warning: It is HBO so you may hear a swear word now and then. The piece is a little silly for the first 2-3 minutes, but by the end you'll be looking for ways to share it.
