We just discovered that comedian DL Hughley will not only be working as a correspondent for CNN, but he was also recently added to the new Jay Leno Show this fall.
In case you didn’t know, NBC has announced that the new Jay Leno Show, set to air at the coveted 10PM slot Monday thru Friday, will feature Hughley and a cast of others as people on-the-street as comedy correspondents. Hughley will join comedians Mikey Day, Rachael Harris, Jim Norton, The Dan Band and NBC Nightly News’ Brian Williams to partake in news-based comedy segments.
If you were thinking that the show will be similar to Leno’s The Tonite Show, we hear that the format will be changed to include more comedy segments and comedy skits. Guests will be interviewed at the desk a la The Tonight Show, but the format will be shifted around so that there is a greater emphasis on comedy even though the desk will still be there and Leno will still be interviewing guests.
The new show is set to debut September 14th.
