Wyatt Cenac's Problem Areas Can Solve All Your Problems (Maybe)

No HBO subscription? No problem!

Lindsay MacDonald

Wyatt Cenac is about to give you some questionable solutions to all your unquestionable problems.

HBO's latest series, Wyatt Cenac's Problem Areas, is a totally new take on late-night and it's about to drop this Friday on HBO. The show will tackle a wide range of social and cultural problems facing Americans, as well as some silly solutions to everyday problems. Rather than go with the traditional format of a host at a desk like John Oliver's Last Week Tonight, Cenac's shows will be shot documentary-style, allowing him to film all around the country.

If you're not an HBO subscriber -- first of all what's wrong with you? Second of all, your lack of subscription won't prevent you from checking out this premiere.

Wyatt Cenac's Problem Areas will be available to non-subscribers for free via the HBO YouTube page this Friday night at midnight ET and 9pm PT. The episode will also be available via HBO GO, HBO NOW, HBO.com, participating television and streaming partner platforms, and free On Demand Channels on Monday, April 16.
