"The premise of The Not Too Late Show is exactly what it sounds like, so deceptively simple that you can't help but wonder why no one had thought of it before: What if there was a late-night TV show for kids?" says Jeva Lange. "Obviously it couldn't be too late — hence the title, but also the straight-to-streaming format, which makes it customizable for bedtimes. Would such a show have a studio audience? (Yes, a mix of Muppets and people, à la Sesame Street, and clearly shot before quarantine). Would there be musical guests? (Yes, among them Kacey Musgraves, the Jonas Brothers, and Lil Nas X — all spot-on choices, give that booker a raise). How long would an episode be? (A blessed 15 minutes each). Even farther flung questions like 'what might cue cards look like for a preliterate puppet host?' get answered by the show (scribbles, naturally). For the Sesame Street team, adapting a children's show's themes to fit a more traditionally adult television format is practically old hat. The original series has been doing parodies of grown-ups' favorites since it began in 1969: Game of Thrones, Star Trek, Lost, Stranger Things (brilliantly retitled 'Sharing Things'), and Law and Order (Special Letters Unit) have all been Muppetized over the years."
