Showtime is doubling down on “Desus & Mero.”
The network’s first late-night talk show is expanding to two nights a week next month, set to air on Monday and Thursday nights beginning May 6. The schedule will continue throughout the summer until its planned hiatus on Monday, August 5.
Upcoming guests slated for the pop culture, sports and comedy show include Lin-Manuel Miranda, Charlize Theron, Amy Poehler, Gabrielle Union, Seth Rogen, Spike Lee, Bill Hader and Regina Hall.
Hosted by Desus Nice (Daniel Baker) and The Kid Mero (Joel Martinez), “Desus & Mero” became Showtime’s first-ever late-night show last July after the duo’s Viceland series came to an end. The half-hour show is produced by JAX Media for Showtime, with Baker and Martinez serving as executive producers alongside Lilly Burns, Tony Hernandez and Victor Lopez.
