That, said, British comedian John Oliver—on his HBO his debut this weekend—was one crucial thing Indian media still needed to learn if they truly wanted to Americanise their news coverage, after exclaiming: 'Holy shit, they've stolen our formula!' while ticking off his checklist:

  1. Do you have a ludicrous number of people shouting at each other?
     
  2. Do you have elaborate, senseless, election graphics?
     
  3. Do you have self-righteous anchors repeating themselves over and over again?


 

No election is complete—or entertaining—without a little scandal, a “je ne sais, genocide,” Mr Oliver said, while referring to Mr Narendra Modi.

Mr Oliver described Mr Rahul Gandhi as “Indian Han Solo".

Johm Oliver's debut on HBO was somewhat disappointing except for the piece on Indian elections.
