In Bed With Joan: Joan Rivers launches her webseries talk show with first guest Sarah Silverman

Joan Rivers was the official substitute host for Johnny Carson before she ever had her own late-night TV talk show.

That was then. In 2013, you have YouTube, and now so does a Joan Rivers talk show. “In Bed With Joan,” a weekly half-hour chat show, launched this week with Joan Rivers chatting up Sarah Silverman. For people who’d rather see comedians in bed than in cars getting coffee. Or something like that. Not that there’s anything…or, you know where that sentence was going. Just roll the clip when you have a half-hour. Or 26 minutes.

“In Bed With Joan” is filmed in front of a small audience, has a sign above the bed, and already feels like it could be on TV. So, will it be on TV by 2014? That’s for you to decide, TV.

Future episodes will include guests Bruce Vilanch, Kelly Osbourne, Kato Kaelin, Ellie Kemper, Chris Harrison and more. Roll the teaser!
