Was a John Mayer talk show on your 2021 bingo card? If so, congratulations!
John Mayer is reportedly nearing a deal to host his own talk show based on the format of the long-running Later… with Jools Holland.
Variety reported on April 28, 2021, that the musician is working out a deal with CBS streaming service Paramount+ to host a weekly show. It would feature performance segments and interviews with “musicians, artists and other cultural figures in a setting designed to look like an after-hours club.”
Plans for the Mayer show reportedly include specials to air on the CBS network, and there is “talk” of tie-ins with the Grammys, which airs on CBS.

Later with John Mayer would be a weekly offering on the streamer. The current plan is for specials derived from the show’s performances to occasionally air on CBS.
Variety reports that CBS has wanted to work with Mayer for many years now, negotiations between the two first being reported back in 2009.
