Showtime is showing its commitment to Desus & Mero.
The series, which is the premium cabler’s first-ever late-night show, will air this summer for a special run and for this run, it will be expanded to two nights a week.
The summer run will begin on May 6, with the series airing Monday and Thursday nights at 11:00 p.m. ET/PT until it goes on hiatus beginning August 5. Upcoming guests include Lin-Manuel Miranda, Charlize Theron, Amy Poehler, Gabrielle Union, Seth Rogen, Spike Lee, Bill Hader, Regina Hall and many more.
The official description: Longtime acquaintances Desus (Daniel Baker) and Mero (Joel Martinez) reconnected online in the early days of Twitter, where they unleashed their potent personalities and found themselves kindred spirits. That led to stints on Complex and MTV, the Bodega Boys podcast and a daily late-night show on Viceland, developing a feverish following. The quick-witted duo brings a distinct voice to late night, delivering smart and comedic commentary on any and all topics, that keeps audiences buzzing. Desus and Mero continue to host their Bodega Boys podcast.
