Friday nights this fall will see comedians Julian McCullough and Annie Lederman facing off on the issues of the week, as E! announced a Sept. 18, 2015, premiere date for their new weekly series, We Have Issues.
Their show has an unspecified episode order, but is being launched in the same timeslot that E! tested out Grace Helbig this spring with The Grace Helbig Show and The Comment Section with Michael Kosta this summer, Fridays at 10:30 p.m. ET/PT.
E!’s official description for We Have Issues: “Julian McCullough and Annie Lederman battle it out in this new series that features a competitive comedy debate about the week’s biggest pop culture news.”
McCullough and Lederman have appeared together on @midnight and separately on other panel shows that masquerade as competition and exhibition, such as E!’s Chelsea Lately and FOX’s World’s Funniest, which comes back in November on Fridays, too (Nov. 6). He’s been on MTV2’s Guy Code; she’s still on MTV’s Girl Code.
E! has worked to get both of them on-camera, filming separate pilots with each of them in 2014. McCullough also previously served as sidekick to Whitney Cummings on her own short-lived E! talk show.
If their televised issues resemble anything like this Twitter exchange…bring it on!
@julezmac no one is surprised by this.
