Showtime is bringing fans more Desus & Mero. The network announced it’s expanding the show to two nights a week for a special summer run.
After leaving Viceland, Desus & Mero jumped to Showtime and became the network’s first-ever late-night talk show. The hit talk show will air two nights a week starting Monday, May 6 and will air Monday and Thursday nights at 11:00 p.m. ET/PT all summer long, up until its August hiatus beginning Monday, August 5.
Desus & Mero features the Bronx duo talking with guests at the intersection of pop culture, sports, music, politics and more, as well as giving their take on the day’s hot topics in their signature style in front of a small live studio audience from New York City. Upcoming guests on Desus & Mero will include Lin-Manuel Miranda, Charlize Theron, Amy Poehler, Gabrielle Union, Seth Rogen, Spike Lee, Bill Hader, Regina Hall and many more.
Desus Nice (Daniel Baker) and The Kid Mero (Joel Martinez) made a name for themselves when they reconnected on Twitter. That led to spots on Complex and MTV, the Bodega Boys podcast, and a daily late-night show on Viceland, developing a cult 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. Produced for Showtime by JAX Media, Desus & Mero is executive produced by Desus Nice and The Kid Mero.
