CBS will continue to stay up extra late with After Midnight.

The network has renewed the late-night show, hosted by comedian Taylor Tomlinson, for a second season in 2024-25. After Midnight is an updated take on @midnight, Comedy Central’s former late-night show, and boasts some of the same creative team.

“Taylor is a gifted comedian who brings a unique voice, energy and plenty of rizz to late night. I learned rizz is a real word thanks to the show,” CBS Entertainment president Amy Reisenbach said in a statement. “We’re excited for more of her daily smart takes about the dumbest things on the Internet.”

Like its predecessor, After Midnight features a group of comedians giving their take on the best/worst/weirdest of the internet and social media each day. The show recently added a monologue for Tomlinson that includes her interacting with the studio audience.

After Midnight, which counts The Late Show host Stephen Colbert among its executive producers, premiered in January as CBS’ replacement for The Late Late Show. The show’s premiere week averaged 819,000 viewers with three days of delayed viewing (but not including streaming; it’s available on Paramount+), and its social media accounts have about 900,000 combined followers as of publication time.

CBS Studios, Colbert’s Spartina Industries and Funny Or Die produce After Midnight. The executive producers are Stephen Colbert, Carrie Byalick, Tom Purcell and Evelyn McGee Colbert of Spartina; James Dixon of Dixon Talent; Jack Martin; Joe Farrell; Mike Farah; Whitney Hodack and Henry R. Muñoz III of Funny Or Die; and @midnight co-creator Jason U. Nadler of Serious Business. Jo Firestone is co-executive producer and head writer, and Alexx Wells is also a co-EP. Sharon Everitt directs.
