John Oliver Destroys Dr. Oz and His Magic Diet Pills: VIDEO


In a segment which features a Skype interview with Game of Thrones actor George RR Martin, an adorable puppy, women in trashy dresses throwing wine in each other's faces, free T-shirts, and Steve Buscemi tap dancing, John Oliver completely destroys Dr. Oz and his defense of dietary supplement.

Says Oliver:

"Name me one case where a man named Oz claimed mystical powers and led people horribly astray."

  1. George RR Martin is the author of the series of books, A Song of Fire & Ice, not an actor on Game of Thrones.

  3. Is there anyone who DOESN'T know that Dr. Oz is a charlatan, come on he's a product of Oprah, one of the greatest hucksters of all time.

  4. Absolutely brilliant. John Oliver is really hitting his stride. It's a blend of the humor of The Daily Show and the well-researched muckraking of Rachel Maddow.

  7. George RR Martin is the writer/creator of Game Of Thrones not an actor in the show. Why do I keep reading this site?

  11. He should have replaced Stephen Colbert. His single topic shows are a good follow-up to the news show of Jon Stewart. How did Comedy Central let him get away?

  12. @I WONT GROW UP -- Damfine was pointing out an error in the text of the article. Maybe you missed the typo!

  13. @ IWGU - I missed that. I guess I autocorrected.

  14. @ Polarbeast - my comment should have been directed at you. I think?

  15. Which character is GRRMartin portraying in the Game of Thrones series? I haven't seen him doing any "acting" yet. ... I am behind a few episodes, does he have a cameo or something?

  16. @gr8guya:

    It's a matter of timing. Oliver's show was already in the planning stages and agreements had been made when Colbert later announced he'd be leaving for the Late Show..

    Sometimes that's just how things pan out.

    Yes, that is G.R.R. Martin skyping with John Oliver. No one here is saying that was an impostor or a fake.

    The error being pointed at is the claim that GRRM is an "ACTOR on Game of Thrones". He's not. He's the AUTHOR of the books it's based on. According to their wiki, he had a cameo, but it got cut.

    Clearer now? ;)

  18. Does anyone know how to stop getting e-mails from Dr. Oz? He's a crafty spammer, that one.

  19. @DAMFIRE I betcha Andy was thinking "author" and his fingers typed "actor."
