Sit back, relax, and catch up on what we watched this week.
John Oliver Forgives $15 Million in Medical DebtIf there was any doubt before, John Oliver has now cemented his status as the world’s master of the PR stunt. For $60,000, John Oliver bought the nearly $15 million in medical debt and forgave the debtors as a means to (a) bring awareness to the boring but very important debt collection industry; (b) show how easy it is to secure thousands of social security numbers, addresses, birthdates, and more; (c) make a memorable impact for viewers and next-day viewers via a wickedly smart PR stunt. The guy just knows how to grab headlines.

Maybe This Crying Dog Will Stop Someone From Leaving Pets in Hot Cars
Summer is here! It means sandals, shorts, BBQs, going to the pool, and hot cars? Yes, very hot cars. Kyle Clark from 9News perfectly worded what I want to say every time I see a dog left in the car. Props to Kyle for reminding dog owners everywhere, that leaving your dog in the car, is never okay.
