Who is America? episode 7 finale as it happened: OJ Simpson sits down with Gio Monaldo

'Me and you we got something in common, we both – how you say – ladykillers'

Who is America? reaches its final episode tonight, with Sacha Baron Cohen saying there will not be a second season.

Has he saved the best until last? The show has seen him fool Dick Cheney, Corey Lewandowski, Roy Moore, Joe Arpaio and more, with a Sarah Palin interview not even making the final cut.

In a trailer Baron Cohen tweeted ahead of episode 7’s broadcast we see all the fallout from the show, with some public figures stepping down from their positions and others vowing to take the comedian to court.

It ends with his Gio Monaldo saying: “Me and you we got something in common, we both – how you say – ladykillers,” before showing the person in question to be O.J. Simpson (who was famously found "not guilty" of murder in a trial verdict watched by millions), who is quick to declare: “What? No I didn’t kill nobody!”

Watch along with us with our live blog below (please allow a moment or two for it to load):

Who is America? has aired Sunday nights in the US on Showtime and followed Monday nights in the UK on Channel 4.

We're about to get underway. I really hope this all ends with Erran Morad going "suit shopping" with Paul Manafort.

"I don't believe Donald Trump was giving Billy Bush advice on how to fight rats."

This is some of Ruddick's finest trolling. The child prostitution receipt!

Erran Morad trains Trump voters to infiltrate liberal circles with an in-depth knowledge of HBO's Girls. This is a lot of fun

"What is the aim of the Me Too movement?

"Take over the world. Kill all the men.

Wow.

That compliment-off could easily have been a scene from Parks and Rec

Rednecks spit-roasting an effigy of Donald Trump. The logical conclusion to these weekly training segments.
