Your kids may soon start begging you for 30 more minutes before bedtime to watch Peacock’s new series The Kids Tonight Show.
Late-night host Jimmy Fallon is now producing a new version of The Tonight Show Starring Jimmy Fallon, but this version is just for kids! The Kids Tonight Show will film directly across the hall from his current show at 30 Rock in New York City. Four young superstars will host the show, ready to grill their celebrity guests and incorporate their own Generation Z games for late night. Kid hosts include Young Dylan’s Dylan Gilmer, In the Heights’s Olivia Perez, Mixed-Ish’s Mykal-Michelle Harris, and kid drummer Recker Eans.
Viewers can look for celebrity guests like Jojo Siwa, Yara Shahidi, Meghan Trainor, Kristen Bell, TikTok stars Charli and Dixie D’Amelio, and more. The new series is made by kids, for kids. In the writers’ room, Power Book 3: Raising Kanan actor Mykey Cooper will offer his youthful expertise to the writing team under Brian McCann. Viewers can expect to see the messiest and most high-energy take on late-night television in a fun-sized package fit for kids.
The Kids Tonight Show will premiere on Peacock on Oct. 14, with two new episodes dropping every week.
