Last week marked the end of the Comedy Central program The Opposition with Jordan Klepper. The program was a satirical take on the news from the perspective of an conspiracy theorist ‘news organization.’ No word yet on what will replace the program. The lead-in for The Opposition, The Daily Show, is in repeats for the next two weeks. If past practice is any guide, any weeknight program replacement is at least a few months away.
With the Fourth of July approaching, many shows opted to take at least some of last week off. (Nearly all will do so this week.) In those repeats, you can once again catch some appearances by the cast of Silicon Valley. Thomas Middleditch’s last appearance on Conan was reran on June 25, and Kumail Nanjiani’s recent visit with James Corden aired again on the 26th.
The lone new program of note was the June 28th edition of The View. Michael Douglas was a guest. He plays Hank Pym in Ant-Man and the Wasp. Pym is a technology researcher who helped develop the technology behind both title characters.
