Jan 4, 2018  •  Post A Comment

Two late-night shows will go live later this month in an effort to provide “instant analysis and commentary” on the State of the Union address. Comedy Central announced plans today for the live telecasts of “The Daily Show with Trevor Noah” and “The Opposition w/ Jordan Klepper” on Jan. 30.

The shows will air live in their usual time slots on the East Coast, with “Noah” at 11 p.m. followed by “Klepper” at 11:30, with live airings on the West Coast at 8 p.m. and 8:30 p.m.

“This marks the seventh time ‘The Daily Show with Trevor Noah’ has aired live, having previously done so throughout the 2016 Presidential Election on election night, after the presidential and vice presidential debates, and on the final nights of both the Republican and Democratic National Conventions,” Comedy Central notes in today’s announcement. “‘The Opposition w/ Jordan Klepper’ made its series debut last fall and will be airing a live episode for the first time.”
