Showtime has set a February premiere date for Desus & Mero, its first weekly late-night show starring Desus Nice and The Kid Mero. Desus & Mero will debut Thursday, February 21 at 11 PM ET/PT on Showtime.
Airing from New York City, Desus & Mero will feature the popular TV and podcast personalities speaking off the cuff and chatting with guests at the intersection of pop culture, sports, music, politics and more.
Longtime acquaintances Desus (real name Daniel Baker) and Mero (Joel Martinez) reconnected online in the early days of Twitter, where they unleashed their personalities. That led to stints on Complex and MTV, the Bodega Boys podcast, and a daily late-night show on Viceland, which wrapped its second season in June. The duo continue to host their Bodega Boys podcast.
Produced for Showtime by JAX Media, Desus & Mero will be executive produced by Desus Nice, The Kid Mero, Lilly Burns, Tony Hernandez and Victor Lopez.
