Rudolph will produce with Saturday Night Live‘s Lorne Michaels serving as executive producer.  The group began working on this variety show back in November 2013!  It’s about time!

I can’t wait, my DVR is already set!

A few weeks ago, when David Letterman announced his retirement, I mentioned on the air how I hope that a woman replaces him… and if that’s not possible, then I want to see something different – like a variety show!  And, while I didn’t get exactly what I was looking for, this is a close second!

Good luck Maya!
