Now that Mr. Robots first season is over, the Bill Hader/Fred Armisen/Seth Meyers IFC series that satirizes documentaries, Documentary Now!, is basically the best thing on TV.

SOLVED!: The Mystery of Justin Bieber's VMA Tears

John Oliver Set Up His Own Church to Call Bullshit on Corrupt Televangelists

Televangelists didn’t disappear in the ‘80s—there are actually more of them than ever. They ask for private planes and piles of money from people who can’t actually afford it in exchange for vague and ephemeral promises of future prosperity and health.

A Mouse Stewed in Michelle Rodriguez's Piss Is What Finally Broke Bear Grylls

Bear Grylls, best known for drinking his own piss, is a tough man to gross out.

John Oliver Teaches Sex Ed, Because States Won't Let Teachers Do It

For the latest Last Week Tonight, John Oliver tried to find out what American kids are learning in sex ed, and discovered that the answer is that no one really knows, because many states have no official standards—in some cases, the information kids get isn’t even required to be medically accurate.
