Both The Nightly Show and The Opposition were hosted by Daily Show veterans and focused heavily on politics. Spade’s as-yet untitled show is a conscious effort to follow The Daily Show with lighter material and cut down on what Comedy Central executive vp and co-head of development Sarah Babineau called “political fatigue.”

“As we’re talking about developing a new 11:30 show, we’re focusing more on the pop-culture space and what we’re calling a palate cleanser,” Babineau told The Hollywood Reporter in November.
