Late night TV has a new face, as comedian Taylor Tomlinson hosts the new show After Midnight on CBS.

Tomlinson's new late-night program is going to air immediately after The Late Show with Stephen Colbert on CBS, occupying the time slot that previously belonged to The Late Late Show with James Corden which ended its run in 2023. Tomlinson's show of course joins the late-night lineup that also includes The Tonight Show with Jimmy Fallon and Late Night with Seth Meyers on NBC, and Jimmy Kimmel Live on ABC.

What is going to make After Midnight different from the other late-night offerings and who is going to be on it? We have everything we know about the series laid out for you directly below.

After Midnight host

Taylor Tomlinson is a stand-up comedian who has filmed multiple Netflix stand-up comedy specials, including Quarter Life Crisis, Look at You and Have It All.

After Midnight premise

After Midnight is a slightly tweaked version of the Comedy Central show @midnight that was hosted by Chris Hardwick and ran from 2013-2017. CBS is billing the late-night show as "the smartest show on television about the dumbest things on the internet."

Tomlinson will lead a panel of rotating guests from the worlds of entertainment, comedy, music and beyond as they tackle the buzziest things on the internet in a game-show-style format.
