MTV’s new late-night comedy series “Nikki & Sara LIVE” will bow Jan. 29 at 11 p.m., based on Nikki Glaser and Sara Schaefer’s popular podcast “You Had to Be There.”
Logo is launching “The Sex Show” on Feb. 4 at 11 p.m. It will air live nightly and sounds like MTV’s old “Loveline,” with a panel of experts taking viewers’ calls, including host Heidi Hamilton, ex-porn star Katie Morgan, psychic life coach Dougall Fraser and relationship and sexuality expert Dr. Mike Dow.
