"Last Week Tonight" host John Oliver sat down with Seth Meyers on Tuesday's "Late Night."
Among other things, the former "Daily Show" correspondent Oliver discussed his fascination with the domestic spectacle of the Super Bowl.
"In most other sports, the sport is the key appeal. And clearly that's not the case for the Super Bowl," Oliver explained. "Americans just expect fighter jets and Lady Gaga now."
Oliver added that he enjoyed the halftime show, but "as a British person, I found the appearance of Coldplay slightly excruciating."
"These men like to smash into each other until they can remember nothing in their 60s. Your flowers and messages of love are not appropriate, Mr. Martin," Oliver joked. "I've never seen a Super Bowl halftime band leave the stage and just invite other bands to take over. It was spectacular."
