David Spade is bucking mainstream trends and pledging not to bash President Donald Trump on his new late night talk show slated to premiere on Comedy Central.
While virtually every other late night TV host spends the majority of their broadcast pathetically lambasting President Trump, Spade intends to take his forthcoming late night TV show in a different direction by sticking to pop culture and current events rather than using it as a platform against the president.
“Lights Out with David Spade” will have a monologue, guests, field pieces and discussion panels, but will mostly focus on popular culture and digital happenings rather than politics, the host said.
“I still like to make fun of everyone and what they are doing, but it’s more good-natured,” he said, adding that “when people do things, I think it’s fair game to make a few jokes, and then you move on — not too personal, of course.”
Spade’s new show premieres next week on Comedy Central at 11 pm, and will compete with virtually every late night show on the major networks.
However, this would not be the first time late night television outperformed the major networks. In the early 2000s, “The Daily Show” with Jon Stewart routinely received such a large proportion of the 18-29 demographic that it became the de facto news source for the generation.
Readers over 30 might scoff at Stewart’s inclusion – assuming they know who he is. For many under 30, the host of Comedy Central’s “The Daily Show” is, improbably, a source for news.
A poll released earlier this year by the Pew Research Center for the People and the Press found that 21 percent of people aged 18 to 29 cited “The Daily Show” and “Saturday Night Live” as a place where they regularly learned presidential campaign news.
By contrast, 23 percent of the young people mentioned ABC, CBS or NBC’s nightly news broadcasts as a source.
If Spade’s intention to leave politics out of his new program remains true, he could easily become a ratings magnet for the recently beleaguered Comedy Central cable news network, which has alongside many others fallen behind in ratings in the age of President Trump.

Roger Stone Files Motion to Remove Judge From Controversial Case
Stone was sentenced to 40 months in prison this week.
Roger Stone has filed a motion to remove the presiding judge from his controversial court case on Saturday, just days after the longtime Republican political operative was sentenced to a stringent 40-month prison term for lying to federal investigators.
Stone is seeking a new trial, and his legal team is pointing out evidence of Judge Amy Berman Jackson’s bias against their client as cause for a new judge. Jackson complimented the jury after they handed on the lengthy prison sentence on Stone for process crimes, stating that they had “served with integrity.”
There’s further reason to believe that Stone, a former adviser to President Donald Trump in the early days of his 2016 Presidential campaign, has been made a victim of deep-seated political bias during the trial, one of the few to result from Robert Mueller’s lengthy and ultimately empty Russian interference probe.
At least one juror has stepped forward to bemoan an effort by the DOJ to dial back aggressive prosecutors seeking to place Stone in prison for an even lengthier amount of time. Juror Tomeka Heart is a committed Democrat former congressional candidate. She’s posted at length on her personal social media about her personal dislike of President Trump.
It’s rather shocking that a juror with such a distinguishable political affiliation wouldn’t be passed up in a court case with direct national political implications. Stone’s lawyers mention Heart’s partisan affiliation in their court filing for a new trial and judge.
Stone currently remains free, pending his filing for a new trial.
Tucker Carlson discussed the pressing ethical lapses surrounding Stone’s conviction and sentencing during a segment on his show Thursday night.
