On October 12th, we all will get a new voice in late night TV. Writer and comedian, Robin Thede will be joining BET’s line up for new original content. for her show entitled, The Rundown BET, they are looking to keep viewers guessing what they can expect from the show. A few weeks ago Thede’s teaser for the series premiered and it pretty much messaged that anything is possible. In the feature Robin takes to the streets riding a black unicorn with the announcer dubbing her as “the 3rd or fourth ever African American female last night host.” Chris Rock serves as the show’s executive producer.
Earlier this year in May, Comedy Hype spoke with former late night co-host Rodney Perry of The Monique Show. Perry explained that money will help a black late night show become successful.
