TLC is jumping for Joy – literally – with the announcement of its new half-hour weekly series LATE NIGHT JOY, hosted by comedienne/talk-show personality Joy Behar and her real-life pals. Every week, Joy plays host to a late-night house party in her NYC apartment where she gathers her closest friends to drink and dish about the things that can only be said behind closed doors – (her closed doors, in fact!). The party starts Wednesday, November 4, at 11/10c.
Joy’s joined by longtime friend Susie Essman (Curb Your Enthusiasm) and real-life pals from her various social circles to throw back a few, relax and gossip. Just as the gabfest is getting good, the doorbell rings, and a celebrity guest drops in on the fun. Celebrity lineup includes Theresa Caputo, Wendy Williams, Don Lemon, Sherri Shepherd and Colin Quinn.
Each week, viewers are invited to look in on these intimate conversations amongst friends, and, as Joy would say, “so what, who cares,” if the cameras are rolling. Nothing is off limits, as Joy and her guests get down to the bottom of some very burning questions: are dating apps ruining our chances of finding true love? Is single the new black? Are there any secrets worth keeping from your husband? Is political correctness killing comedy? Who’s binge eating this week and why?
Everyone – including the viewer – is having a grand-old time, but before darkness turns to dawn, Joy does what only she can get away with: she sends her company home so she can get her beauty sleep. Until next time…
