John Oliver plays media critic in the teaser trailer for his new HBO show, Last Week Tonight with John Oliver

The first clip showing The Daily Show alum's weekly late night series has debuted. Oliver spends the majority of the clip riffing on the name of the show, namely, how a Sunday night talk show repackages the week's (sometimes stale) news. There's even a CNN joke in there for Jon Stewart fans. 

STORY: John Oliver Talks New HBO Show

Last November Oliver's departure from Comedy Central to HBO had been announced. Over the summer months in 2013, the comedian had garnered favorable reviews as the guest host of The Daily Show while Stewart had been away directing a film. 

Last Week Tonight premieres on HBO on April 27.
