Cuteness overload.

The best thing about John Oliver moving over to HBO and not sticking around for Comedy Central's scraps is he's not holding back one bit. His latest as host of Last Week Tonight? He takes on Dr. Oz's appearance at the Hill (for hawking magic weight loss pills) along with the Food and Drug Administration, Federal Trade Commission, Mel Gibson and countless others in one fell, 16-minute-long swoop.

Watch the whole thing for bits of Steve Buscemi tap dancing, Game of Thrones spoilers via George R. R. Martin and a puppy! Oh, and stay away from miracle pills for goodness sake.
