Former SNL cast member Abby Elliott and the women’s satire team at Reductress have landed a late-night talk show pilot at Comedy Central titled The Reductress Hour.
According to The Hollywood Reporter, the show will take on “the absurdities of women’s news, trends, broader national subjects and entertainment television while tackling various issues of the week, original segments and field interviews.”
Reductress launched in 2013 and has aimed to deal with the best and worst of women’s media – and with its dry, humorous approach to headlines, it’s cultivated a following of more than 2.5 million unique visitors a month, as well as winning a Webby this year for Best Website: Humor, and publishing a faux self-help book How to Win at Feminism: The Definitive Guide to Having It All – And Then Some!
If The Reductress Hour sticks, it will join a mostly male Comedy Central lineup that includes The Daily Show With Trevor Noah, The Opposition With Jordan Klepper, Tosh.0 and Nathan for You.
