    Sources tell Variety that “Later With John Mayer” has been pitched to prospective broadcast partners as a series featuring performance segments as well as interviews with musicians, artists and other cultural figures in a setting designed to look like an after-hours club for musicians.

    The series would run as a weekly offering on Paramount Plus, ViacomCBS’ streaming platform which was relaunched March 4. The plan is to have specials derived from the show’s performance segments air periodically on CBS as well. There is also talk of tie-ins with the Grammy Awards, which are aired on CBS.

    Good for him, I don’t blame him for jumping on it.
    It could be good, but at the end of the day how many people are looking for another talk show?

    How many of them are specific to Paramount Plus? Steaming services are trying to find ways to further justify their subscription fee and provide “well, if I cancel cable, I COULD watch this instead...” alternatives. I don’t think this one would be for me, but to be fair, talk shows aren’t really my thing anyway. I understand why they’d try to make this work though.

    Clips from Later with Jools Holland are a regular YouTube watch for me and as a casual fan of John Mayer, I’d check this out.
