On TV tonight: 'Nikki & Sara LIVE'
Posted January 29, 2013
I've written a few times about You Had to Be There, the comedy/pop-culture podcast hosted by Nikki Glaser and Sara Schaefer. Their funny banter and excellent guests lured me from the start, and I was thrilled to see it become so popular.
Even though Nikki and Sara started their podcast in a very DIY, not-for-profit way, it has had a big impact on their careers. Tonight they launch their own weekly late-night talk show, Nikki & Sara LIVE, on MTV.
It's awesome to see some ladies in late night, and I hope Nikki and Sara will bring a bit of an edge to the 11 o'clock hour. The show has been in the works for some time; they broke the news back in 2011 when I interviewed them.
According to the New York Times, the show is run by a former Colbert Report producer and "won't be as personal as the podcast." Expect interviews, pre-taped sketches and other bits each week. (And don't worry, podcast fans: They plan to continue You Had to Be There as well.)
The women have posted a few videos on MTV.com, one a tongue-in-cheek clip about how to get a talk show. Ke$ha is booked as the first guest.
Set the DVR for Nikki & Sara LIVE tonight at 11 ET. Seriously - you have to be there.
