my opinion on Melo has improved 1000% after this interview. dude's segment was hilarious, i hope they start releasing extended interview segments

if this series makes it past two seasons, i will be surprised. the past few episodes have been hit or miss on some of the segments but that DJ Envy edible arrangement jab had me rolling

i think it's the first time but i'm hoping Showtime keep uploading extended interviews. one of the best and most revealing parts of the last show

New episode tonight! I think! I'm really happy about the two nights a week change. It should solve most of my problems (along with the extended interviews).

Just saw this on my DVR. I had no idea they were planning to go up to 2 nights a week. I think 3 would be great but 2 is actually pretty good anyways. Actually, the 1 a week wasn't killing me either. Do you know if they announced the change previously? Happy to see this.

If we jump to 2x a week and extended interviews uploaded to youtube, I'll be much happier, even if the quality of the show needs to find itself. I think Mero has been lacking so far.

that was great. probably my favorite episode of the new show so far, felt a little bit looser and closer to the Vice show during the clips section

That video has me dying. The NBA stuff comes from a real place.

The last two episodes have been really good. It definitely feels like two episodes a week is the way to go. It gives the boys room to breathe and make jokes.

Man this interview is just the best. Although I feel a little bad Desus got basically stuck with the job of asking the questions, Mero was just chatting shit with Hader the whole time.

one of the strongest shows yet. i don't mind the cuts to pre-taped interviews, but bouncing to the table and then back to riffs feels more natural, but maybe that's just bias due to conditioning to the old show. i do think the show works a lot better without the skits at half an hour though. the real draw of their dynamic to me is them bouncing off each other, and the skits neuter that - though that's not unique to the show, and i mostly loathe all late-nite show skits that aren't just flat-out weird (Colbert's cold opens are just fucking awful) - if it were like 45-60 minutes long, they might breathe a little better.

as someone with a huge nostalgia spot for late 80s through 90s NYC ephemera that interview was gold. Spike's a treasure and watching these dudes playfully war about NY boroughs was oddly comforting

My favorite thing is when Desus and Mero fuck shit up on a platform that isn't their own.

Completely on fire the entire time, I was crying holy fuck.

The show has dramatically improved in quality and they've seemed to realize that they can't skimp out on YouTube content.

Happy for the ballbags

I wouldn't be surprised if they have the lead on Black Women writers.

The Thursday Ep from last week had me weak. The My Pillow bit was too funny.
