On Thursday's Daily Show, Barris discussed his February 2018 shelved "Please, Baby, Please" Black-ish episode that was released this week on Hulu. He told Trevor Noah that one of the reasons the episode was shelved was because of Disney's merger with Fox. "Bob Iger understood and really supported where I was coming from but, at the same time, was running a publicly traded company during a merger and things like that," Barris said. "We had a real honest conversation about this episode. He was like 'I love the episode,'" Barris said. He also recalled Iger advising that given "the time is there" and "there's a lot of curiosity" as to why the episode was shelved, they should "let people sort of on their own find their answer."
