Comedy Central's ‘Colbert Report’ Replacement Gets Name, Date, And Time Slot

COMMENTS

According to a press release by Comedy Central:

[The Opposition] 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.

Klepper, Noah and The Daily Show‘s Stuart Miller will serve as The Opposition‘s executive producers, while Klepper's frequent collaborator Owen Parsons will take charge in the writers’ room. Daily Show producer Ian Berger and Any Given Wednesday alum Kim Gamble will also serve as co-executive producers on the new show.

The press release describes the upcoming show as a “not mainstream,” “not establishing,” and “not helping” comedy series.

Ahead of the show's premiere, four new Twitter handles have popped up related to The Opposition and Jordan Klepper. Only time will tell which one the show's producers decide to use before the September 25th premiere.
