    Robocalls are a growing problem. If only we could make the FCC care a little bit more about fixing it.

What pisses me off if not that I could get scammed, but when fake companies are calling people who don’t know any better and scamming them into thinking they are going to be deported, arrested for IRS discrepancies, or visa issues. I can’t fathom how many people have been scammed into giving these scammers money, their SSN, or their personal info. Breaks my heart.

Please do another segment on China! In California our housing is becoming completely unaffordable because Chinese buyers want to own 3 homes each and buy here as investment and don’t even occupy. It creates a bubble and empty ghost neighborhoods. Your show does the best in deep hilarious analysis, with action orientated viewers. Please help California so our cities aren’t all ghost unoccupied homes owned by Chinese investors!!!

John Oliver and that whole staff (writers, producers, and directors) have special pants to hold their massive balls... In fact the women have reinforced ones because this could all be career suicide if this show every pisses off the wrong person or company, even maybe just go to far on one stunt. I can imagine a woman after that struggling more to find employment within that industry. There aren't very many women in that industry let alone in place of power... But I love all of these things that are done to show or huge lack of oversight, inequalities, and general laziness within our over bureaucratic system. They don't just use this platform to talk about things. They go out develop a cause to get behind and slowly but surely build a base and attack. During that attack the base share and spread this thought or belief, through this is gains attention and support from a much larger population and once that train starts it doesn't stop until it is given the correct attention and recognition.

Wouldn’t it have been delicious if the phone numbers for those FCC commissioners were displayed on air? I think we could have broken their phones! The “goober” reference to Ajit Pai is priceless! Oliver’s correct in saying that the American public will elect almost any type of lowlife (such as the most recent holder of the title of president), but a goober? No way. Thanks, Mr. Oliver, I needed this.

So the free call blocking system that USA don't have (according to Oliver), is that the same as India's DND service? Cuz I just activated it on my numbers and automated calls of "hellooooo I'm calling from the bank" and "bhaijaan Salman ki latest filmi gaane suniye" have vanished. Can someone clarify if these are the same kind of system?

11:36 is the actual law in Germany. I have to give consent to get called by companies, unless the call is really to solve an actual issue (like a missed payment or they send me something and it got returned with "address unknown"). And even if i gave consent, one single "Stop calling me please" is enough that they are not allowed to do so in the future.

I get so many of these that I don't answer numbers I don't know. I've missed actual calls before because I won't answer if I don't recognize a number or the location it is from. It's always "Katie on a recorded line" or something about my Medicare health benefits that I don't have. I'm on the Do Not Call list and it doesn't matter. I also get calls from spoofed numbers usually with the same first three digits. Called back a couple of times. One lady cursed me out, called me a bitch and hung up. Another was really understanding and I explained that someone probably spoofed her number because she hadn't actually called.

If you simply made every caller pay a nickel to every person called, non-targeted calls would be dramatically reduced. White lists could be institute so you didn't have to pay your mother to call... likewise businesses could opt out.

The guy asking if the caller was a robot was real aggrivating because I've worked in a lot of call centers and have had a lot of people assume I'm a robot. Normally I just laugh it off and assume that just means I sound professional but let me tell you it gets real aggrivating when someone won't drop it.

I love how he isn't just hilarious, he always takes immediate action to fix the problem he addresses. I wish someone like him would run for president. Someone with a sense of humor would be real with the public. Donald Trump already broke the barrier...so now any celebrity can do it. Why not someone we trust? You can literally do your same job from a position of power. Imagine how funny the State of the Union would be. But I guess you'd have to be a natural born citizen though? Hmm...bet there's ways around that
