There’s a new ‘B’ in town..that’s Samantha Bee. She’s the recent late night host and the only female in the ranks. Meanwhile, back in Harlem USA, Sean ‘Diddy’ Combs is launching a new Charter school in his hometown. They’ve found new wind beneath their wings for hitting the sweet spot & lifting street value.

In a press statement Combs said “I want to impact the lives of young people in my community and build future leaders. All our children should be able to pursue their dreams. That is something I can impact with this school.” Diddy has gone from ‘good to gush’ by turning his career milestones into dream projects.

Before getting her own gig, Bee worked with Jon Stewart on the Daily Show for 12 years. Combs as the all-time rapper is teaming up with noted Educators to bring a new slice of success to students. They have used their early days in showbiz to figure-out how to crack the code or break the mold in media & music.

It’s that same tenacity that he hopes to bring to students. Maybe what works for connecting smarts to hearts might be the same as what’s helped him go from rapper to mogul. It’s in reaching people where they are and taking them to a place where whatever it takes to win, feels good. That’s the real hotspot.

The buzz around Bee these days is whether her rise will help to expand the club of female late night hosts. When asked about Stewart’s role she said “He gave me the platform for me to teach myself.” Maybe that’s how Diddy sees this effort as the next frontier in his quest to flex more eagle-high dreams.

There’s a new ‘B’ in town. With enough honey to go ‘round. That’s Samantha Bee from Comedy Central. Now with her own TBS portal. Meanwhile back on the Harlem block. Sean ‘Diddy’ Combs brings new school house rock. Both with new wind beneath their wings. Hitting sweet spot and street value things.

In press statement saying he wants to impact. Lives of young people as a ‘hood contract. To build future leaders and teams. So that kids can pursue their dreams. Something about doing it in school. Where learning is the main rule. He’s gone from ‘good to gush.’ So he wants kids to feel the same rush.

Before getting her own show. Bee worked in Jon Stewart’s comedy row. Spent 12 years doing funny bits. Now she’s ready to do the hits. Combs as all-time rapper’s delight. Teams-up with Educators in the fight. Bringing kids a new slice of success. To crack the code or break the mold after recess.

Same tenacity he hopes they gain. Knowing how to channel the pain. What works for connecting smarts to hearts. Helped him go from rapper to mogul parts. In reaching people where they are. Taking them to place of a star. Doing whatever it takes to win. A real hotspot that pops a grin.

Buzz around Bee is if her rise. Will expand the club or reach the wise. Female hosts in late night ranks. And some women in their spanks. When asked about Stewart’s mentor role. Kinda wants to say ‘bless his soul.’ It’s how Diddy sees his next milestone. Eagle-high dreams to stepping stone.

Theme:–The Year of ‘Uppertunity’ – Get Lifted!”
With Higher Hopes, Bolder Dreams and Greater Teams (Old-School Flava)

The newest player in late night TV has entered the building! That’s how some saw the debut of CBS’ Late Night with Stephen Colbert. He joins the ranks of comedy hosts who mix politics and showbiz eclectics. Competition for late night eyeballs is on, as Colbert’s hunch is that pop culture can be the star teacher.

He tells USA Today about his new role saying “It gives me everything I want. I like meeting the guests, I like the grind, I like a live audience, I love to hear the laughter. It’s the only job I could imagine that was a promotion.” This is a case of landing a promotion by learning the ropes and not being stuck on stupid.

Colbert made a grand entry with Joe Biden, Jeb Bush and other guests, plus a cameo from Jon Stewart. His interviewing skills and comedic slant are getting people’s attention. Reaching this next level has been a steady output of content built around ‘getting ready for great’ before his breakaway.

It’s been years preparing for this moment after spending time as an understudy and reporter on the Daily Show. This helped him spin-off his own gig on Comedy Central. Hardly anyone questions whether he was the right one to replace Letterman. And even Jimmy Fallon welcomed him to Network prime time.

Colbert adds “I’m looking forward to being sincerely interested in what (guests) have to say without having to translate it through an idiot’s mouth.” His background is built on improv and reputation built on his real love. No matter the guests, Colbert hopes people watch, listen, laugh and learn the civics lesson.

Newest player in late night TV game. Someone who entered the building with a name. Steps-in to host CBS’ nighttime comedy fix. With politics and showbiz top picks. Competition for late night eyeballs in play. Colbert sees pop culture as star teacher of the day.

Tells USA Today his feelings on new role. Gives him everything he wants to spur his soul. Likes the guests the grind and live crowd. Loves to hear when people laugh out loud. Only job he saw as his next promotion. Not stuck on stupid with new found recognition.

Made grand entry with Joe, Jeb and Jon. Other guests too that made his debut #1. Interviewing skills without the endless rant. Getting people’s attention with comedic slant. Reaching next level with steady output of content. Built around getting ready for great breakaway moment.

Years preparing for this gradual rise. A big step-up towards the ultimate prize. Time as understudy and Daily Show reporter. Helped to spin-off own gig as Comedy Central anchor. Hardly questioned as the right one for Letterman’s job. Even Jimmy Fallon welcomed him to the prime time club.

Looks forward to having best scoop. From variety of folks who’re in the loop. Without needing to translate stuff through. An idiot’s mouth that’s right for the zoo. A background built on theater improv. A reputation built on his real love. The guests he hopes will ring true. As we watch, listen, laugh and learn civics anew.
