Taking over the old Mad TV slot on FOX, comic Wanda Sykes will be getting her own late night show this fall and The Snob couldn’t be happier. I love Wanda and will be interested to see what she does with her own “Bill Maher-ish” kind of show and I’m glad to see her hard work pay off with a second shot on FOX. (Anyone remember “Wanda-At-Large?” I was one of the five people who watched it religiously until it was canceled.)
Here’s the rest of the story from USA Today:
“I’m the wrap-up of what happened through the week but from my point of view,” (Sykes) says. The show will feature conversation among panels of guests, along the lines of Bill Maher’s HBO show, along with sketches and topical humor, and will tape within a few days of its airing. And what’s that point of view? She won’t commit, other than to say that though she’sa registered Democrat she’ll be “fair” to all sides.
Now. If I can just get Lorne Michaels to hire Aisha Tyler to play Michelle Obama on Saturday Night Live my work will be complete.
