Maya Rudolph’s Variety Show Still in Play at NBC

(via Deadline)

Following a solid showing by a one-off special, The Maya Rudolph Show is apparently in contention to go to series. It might be retooled in its structure perhaps, especially in regards to the balance between music versus comedy.

Still, it would be nice to see a fresh, new variety sketch show apart from SNL, even if Lorne Michaels is producing and many SNL alums including Rudolph herself are at the core of the show.

If this somehow gets Rudolph’s Prince tribute band Princess back on national TV, then we definitely hope this goes to series.
