Showtime’s first late-night talk show “Desus & Mero” is returning with all-new episodes. The network confirmed a Season 3 order for the series and set a January 31st premiere date. The show will continue to air weekly on Sunday and Thursday nights at 11 p.m. ET/PT from New York City.
“Desus & Mero” features co-hosts Desus Nice and The Kid Mero, giving their take on the day’s hot topics and chatting with guests at the intersection of pop culture, sports, music, politics, and more.

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 continue to host their long-running and wildly popular Bodega Boys podcast.”
