NEW YORK, May 3, 2005 -- COMEDY CENTRAL has green lit production on three new series starring Adam Carolla, Stephen Colbert and D.L. Hughley as it seeks to redefine late night as the new prime time and capitalize on the continued success of the network's flagship series, "The Daily Show with Jon Stewart," it was announced today during the MTV Networks Upfront presentation by Doug Herzog, president, COMEDY CENTRAL. "Weekends at the D.L." will premiere on Friday, July 29 with "The Colbert Report" and the untitled Adam Carolla talk show bowing late 3Q 2005.

"Many of our viewers don't even get home until 11:00 p.m. making late night their own version of prime time," said Herzog. "Jon and 'The Daily Show' bring them to COMEDY CENTRAL each night and we feel that Stephen, Adam and D.L. will give them a reason to stay with the channel late into the night as they wind down with some of the most talented comedians working today."

Each of the three series will reflect the distinctive sensibility and personality of their hosts and can best be described as follows:

"Weekends at the D.L." -- Take a trip into the world of D.L. Hughley on any given night of the weekend and here's what you're likely to find: cool and interesting guests, funny and entertaining conversation, and a hip vibe. This is exactly what Hughley hopes to bring viewers every night in his new, late night talk show. Shot in front of a studio audience, "Weekends at the D.L." will air Friday, Saturday and Sunday nights at 11:00 p.m. (ET/PT) and premiere on July 29. Robert Morton, Hughley, Michael Rotenberg and Dave Becky will serve as executive producers.

"The Colbert Report" -- No "news" show can contain the personality, insight and overall rightness of "The Daily Show's" Stephen Colbert. That's why he now has a half-hour platform each night to give his take on the issues of the day, and more importantly, to tell you why everyone else's take is just plain wrong. What "The Daily Show" is to evening news, "The Colbert Report" is to O'Reilly/Scarborough/Hannity/Anderson Cooper, et al?except Colbert's show will be intentionally funny. This is the first project developed under the network's first-look agreement with Jon Stewart's Busboy Productions, Inc. and will be produced by Busboy in association with Spartina Productions, Inc. Stewart, Ben Karlin and Colbert will serve as executive producers. Series to premiere during late 3Q 2005.

Untitled Adam Carolla Show -- Continuing the network's foray into late night, Carolla will provide his unique comedic take on the events of the day, with a focus on pop culture. The format will include opening comments, an interview with a single celebrity guest, live phone calls from viewers and pre-taped interviews with Carolla and real people on the street. Shot in front of a studio audience, the series will premiere during late 3Q 2005 and be produced by Jackhole Industries. Carolla and Daniel Kellison will serve as executive producers.
