Desus & Mero Preview
Comedic duo Daniel “Desus Nice” Baker and Joel “The Kid Mero” Martinez debuted their self-titled talk show in February 2019, airing a successful 45-episode first season from February to November. The second season premiered February 3, 2020, but then after the March 12 went on a brief hiatus due to the COVID-19 pandemic shutting down television production all over the world.
The second season returned on March 30 and ran continuously until May 28. Now after a hiatus of a little over a month, the late-night talk show is back with new episodes beginning Sunday, July 5 at 11 p.m. ET/PT. This marks a move for the show — it previously aired on Mondays and Thursdays, now it will be airing on Sundays and Thursdays.
According to the release from Showtime, “Each episode features Desus Nice (Daniel Baker) and The Kid Mero (Joel Martinez) giving their take on the day’s hot topics and chatting with guests at the intersection of pop culture, sports, music, politics and more.”
It also recounts how Desus and Mero met, saying that they were longtime acquaintances who connected online in the early days of Twitter “where they unleashed their potent personalities and found themselves kindred spirits. That led to stints on Complex and MTV, the Bodega Boys podcast, and a daily late-night show on Viceland, developing a feverish 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 also continue to host their Bodega Boys podcast, which can be found here.
The first episode when the show returns is called “You Are the Jake” and features guest Jamaal Bowman, who is running for the United States House of Representatives in New York’s 16th congressional district. He is challenging incumbent Eliot Engel.
The July 9 episode is called “It Be Your Own Mans” and features former Daily Show host Jon Stewart. The July 12 episode title has not yet been announced, but the featured guest is rapper Noname. The July 16 episode features filmmaker Judd Apatow.
Desus & Mero airs Sundays at 11 p.m. ET/PT on Showtime.
