Today, a report has surfaced that talk show duo ‘Desus and Mero’ will be exiting their deal with VICELAND to begin a new relationship with Showtime. The duo who got their early buzz with their podcast ‘The Bodega Boys’ has been on a quest to provide a new voice to the landscape of late night talk shows. Their authentic approach to viral moments and pop culture topics have created a respected following. According to Deadline’s Nellie Andreeva, who broke the news, details on Desus & Mero’s’ latest should surface in about a week.

Desus Nice and The Kid Mero are on the move. I hear the duo will be leaving Viceland where they have hosted their own daily late-night talk show, Desus & Mero, for two seasons. It hasn’t been revealed where they are headed but I hear they are in talks for a deal at Showtime, possibly for a weekly show. I hear Desus and Mero started telling the staff about their pending departure from Viceland yesterday. The show’s final episode is expected to air June 28. I hear Viceland tried to keep Desus and Mero onboard with a new deal but I hear the duo got an opportunity they felt they could not pass on. Reps for Viceland and Showtime declined comment.
