COZI TV has announced it will be airing a Leslie Jordan After Dark special for one week, starting on Monday, June 15 during the usual 1 a.m. EST Will & Grace timeslot. COZI TV will air two episodes each night that features loveable guest star, Leslie Jordan.

The hit comedy series Will & Grace features actors Debra Messing as Grace Adler, Megan Mullally as Karen Walker, Eric McCormack as Will Truman and Sean Hayes as Jack McFarland. The series follows best friends Will and Grace as they navigate living together, while they deal with their eccentric friends Karen and Jack. The show originally aired on NBC starting in 1998, with the season eight finale coming in 2006. NBC brought the series back in 2017 and in April 2020 it completed its four-decade run, comprising 11 seasons, 246 episodes and earning 18 Emmy Awards.

Celebrity Show-Off

TBS has announced Celebrity Show-Off, a unique talent competition series hosted by Mayim Bialik (The Big Bang Theory), premiering on Tuesday, June 23 at 10:00pm ET/PT. Based on the popular Korean show My Little Television, and from the executive producer of The Masked Singer, the 10-episode remote series will turn TV and social media on their heads by transforming the variety format into an innovative experiment. Each week celebrities will be given the opportunity to see who can produce the most compelling content from the comfort of their own homes. Talent confirmed for the showcase include: Diplo, Ja Rule, Action Bronson, Gabi Butler, Dwight Howard, Travis Kelce, Nene Leakes, Jason Mraz, Kevin Smith, Tori Spelling, Bella Thorne, Rumer, Scout, and Tallulah Willis and others from every area of entertainment, sports and beyond.

In every episode of this of-the-moment variety show, five celebrities from the worlds of sports, music, comedy, TV, and film will face-off by creating quirky self-shot content that premieres online. The celebrity’s goal is to attract and engage the most online viewers to keep their digital shows "on the air" – and avoid being the channel that "goes dark." Each week, the stars will come together in an inventive high-tech virtual studio where they will screen and react to each other's content and find out who will remain in the competition. And in an innovative "twist," the lowest-performing celebrity will be replaced with a brand new surprise celebrity newcomer, adding a new layer of thrills as everyone vies for the largest internet following. The longer a celebrity stays in the competition, the more money they raise for their charity, with the last star on air earning an extra donation for their cause.
