No rest for the in-demand Joy Behar: the popular co-host of The View will now have her own half-hour series called Late Night Joy on TLC.
Beginning Nov. 4, the weekly show will pair Behar with real-life buddies like Susie Essman (Curb Your Enthusiasm) in her New York City apartment for a dish-fest. At some point, the doorbell will ring and a celebrity like Theresa Caputo, Wendy Williams, Don Lemon, Sherri Shepherd, and Colin Quinn will drop by to join the conversation.
“It’s a relaxing. Then the conversation flows,” Behar told PEOPLE. “It’s not an AA meeting … I like talking with people I’ve known for a long time. It’s more comfortable. It’s more fun. We’re not editing so much. We’re not afraid to say stuff.”
Behar returned to The View this season to help reboot the show.
Late Night Joy will kick off on Nov. 4 at 11 p.m. ET. TLC has initially ordered five episodes of the series.
