The newest addition to the weekly, late night landscape, The Jim Jefferies Show takes on culture and politics with an unapologetic, honest and international approach.

Monday, September 25
The Opposition with Jordan Klepper (Series Premiere) – 11:30 p.m.
The Opposition with Jordan Klepper will satirize the hyperbolic, conspiracy-laden noise machine that is the alternative-media landscape on both the right and left. The Opposition is the voice of the new America. It is the America that defines its own reality. It’s the America of paid protestors, Obama’s birth certificate, and the certainty that CNN is fake news. The Opposition with Jordan Klepper will premiere on Monday, September 25 following The Daily Show with Trevor Noah.

Thursday, September 28
Nathan For You (Season 4 Premiere) – 10:00 p.m.
The new season kicks off with all-new business strategies that no ordinary consultant would dare to attempt. In season four, Nathan helps a computer repair shop earn its customers’ trust by hiring a fully asexual staff; devises a plan to sell hot chili at a hockey arena by hiding it under his clothing; and attempts to get around international tariff laws by rebranding smoke alarms as musical instruments. With his unorthodox approach to problem solving, Nathan’s genuine efforts to do good often draw the real people he encounters into an experience far beyond what they signed up for.

The President Show (all-new episodes) – midnight
Continuing in Comedy Central’s grand tradition of producing groundbreaking late night formats, comes The President Show. Created by Anthony Atamanuik who hosts as Donald J. Trump, The President Show gleefully tosses out the rulebook of its predecessors. Trump is bypassing the crooked media by hosting a late-night show direct from the Oval Office. No unfair questions from reporters, no awkward photo ops with German ladies, and no bedtimes. Just a fun show where he can put his unique Trumpian spin on such late-night stapes as desk segments, field pieces and guest interviews. Vice President Mike Pence is featured as his sidekick, played by Peter Grosz. Produced by Clone Wolf Productions and 3 Arts Entertainment, this weekly, topical late night series currently airs on Thursdays at 11:30 p.m. ET/PT. Beginning Thursday, September 28, The President Show will premiere at midnight, following new late night series The Opposition with Jordan Klepper.
