While hiatuses are normal for late night shows, even without a pandemic, the length of a given absence feels like years because there are so many colossal events happening in the world on top of the COVID-19 pandemic.
The renewed vitality that Desus & Mero specifically bring to late night as they are so radically different from everyone else in button downs and suits compounds that feeling. Thankfully, that time is over and the Bodega Boys are back at it for their third season, going over the news in the delightfully rambunctious way that ultimately brought them to Showtime.
Their third season just kicked off yesterday and, as they have pretty much been since their days at VICE, it’s a rollicking breath of fresh air. Courtesy of Showtime, you can see for yourself for FREE as their very first episode of this season with special guest Stacey Abrams is streaming on YouTube here.
