If You Know Any Cicadas, Babies, or People Who Just Haven’t Been Paying Attention the Last 17 Years, Have John Oliver Get Them Caught Up to Speed


The cicadas are coming. As Oliver points out above, that means the world won't just get louder, it will also get a surge in tiny pop-culture neophytes — ones deprived of years of updates because of their fascinating life cycles. With no new Last Week Tonight this weekend, the show's host took roughly two minutes Sunday to teach the bugs (and any people also living under rocks) about such big post-1999 developments as YouTube, the Boston Red Sox's World Series wins, Queen B, and the disappearance of The Cosby Show reruns. (Unfortunately, not enough time to re-explain that whole Trump thing.)
