And it's hosted by not one, but TWO female comedians!
MTV might have another hit on their hands with The Nikki and Sara Show, which will offer a "fresh and different" take on late-night comedy programming.
Stand-up comics Nikki Glaser and Sara Schaefer will host the weekly series that the cable network will air during the 11pm time slot. MTV programming head David Janollari described the pair as "funny and smart with a little edge sprinkled throughout" in a statement that reads:
"MTV's audience is searching for something fresh and different in late night, and the humor of Nikki and Sara will perfectly fill the void. They are funny and smart with a little edge sprinkled throughout — just the right fit for the time slot and our audience."
Although not very well known (yet), the two comedians have developed a respected reputation in comedy. Mz. Glaser's claim to fame is being a former semi-finalist on NBC's Last Comic Standing, while Schaefer is an Emmy-winning blogger on Late Night with Jimmy Fallon.
Sources say the show will feature celebrity guests, man-on-the-street interviews, pretaped sketches and, of course, HIGHlarious jokes! We can't wait to see what these two lovely ladies have planned for us!
