Hit daytime program The Queen Latifah Show has been added to the late-night block on BET. Starting March 31, you’ll be able to catch the talk show at night alongside The Wendy Williams Show and The Real.
During the day, Latifah is a bonafide hit, outpacing all other new talk shows for the season. BET will air repeats of the CBS program, which has already been picked up for season two. Wendy Williams was picked up by BET in 2009.
Late night, Latifah will face stiff competition from the talk shows (Jimmy Fallon, David Letterman, Arsenio, etc) as well as the line up on Comedy Central (The Daily Show, Stephen Colbert, and the new show @Midnight, which has been doing pretty well), and Bravo’s Watch What Happens Live and the re-broadcast of its winning stock of reality TV shows.
So if you don’t catch Latifah during the day, you can catch her at night. Will you stay awake to tune in?
