Part of calling yourself the #1 show in late night is having a broad appeal across all demographics, which includes age (i.e. can you appeal to the whole family). While Desus Nice and The Kid Mero have built their reputation on artfully weaving riffs out of the bluest strings of euphemisms and expletives, they “wanted” to give working clean (i.e. seeing what being on The Tonight Show’s slot on NBC) would really be like.
As a digital exclusive, you can watch Desus & Mero somewhat try to have “good clean fun” (though they do have to contend with stories that are such easy, low hanging fruit for going dirty).
See how long they last trying to be TV clean here (spoiler alert, not even 5 min.)
