Plot Synopsis

Based on the segment on THE LATE LATE SHOW WITH JAMES CORDEN and hosted by Method Man and Hailey Baldwin, each half-hour episode of DROP THE MIC features four stars from the worlds of entertainment, music, sports and pop culture who face off against each other in a rap battle royale. At the end of each head-to-head battle, the studio audience votes to pick the winner. Originally scheduled to debut on May 2, 2017, DROP THE MIC premiered nearly six months later on Tuesday, October 24, 2017 at 10:30pm ET/PT with an episode featuring Halle Berry vs. James Corden and Usher vs. Anthony Anderson. Additional Season 1 matchups include: Mayim Bialik vs. Kunal Nayyar, James Corden vs. Nicole Richie, Jesse Tyler Ferguson vs. Chrissy Metz, Gina Rodriguez vs. Rob Gronkowski, Tony Hale vs. Timothy Simons, Chris Jericho vs. Laila Ali, Michael Bennett vs. Vanessa Hudgens, David Arquette vs. Brian Tyree Henry, Nicole Scherzinger vs. Lil' Rel Howery, James Van Der Beek vs. Randall Park, Rascal Flatts vs. Boyz II Men and more. Season 2 of DROP THE MIC premiered on Sunday, April 15, 2018 at 10:30pm ET/PT on TBS. The second season kicks off with a David & Goliath, when Shaquille O' Neal trades bars with comedian Ken Jeong, and we see which talk show host can REALLY work the mic when Ricki Lake goes head-to-head with Jerry Springer in a classic heavyweight match. Celebrity matchups for the rest of Season 2 include Luis Fonsi vs. Terry Crews, Molly Ringwald vs. Jon Cryer, Assassination of Gianni Versace star Darren Criss vs. Stranger Things star Gaten Matarazzo, Jay Pharoah vs. Marlon Wayans, Luis Guzman vs. Gabriel Iglesias, Lindsey Vonn vs. Gus Kenworthy, and "Glow" vs. "Pro" which includes Glow cast members Jackie Tohn, Kate Nash, Sunita Mani and Britney Young battling against WWE wrestlers Nikki Bella, Brie Bella, Carmella and Alicia Fox.
On Sunday, June 17, 2018 at 10:30pm ET/PT, TBS premiered the Season 2 finale of DROP THE MIC. Actor Luis Guzman competes against funnyman Gabriel "Fluffy" Iglesias in a no-holds-barred death match. And it's a duel of the pop stars when Charli XCX and Tove Lo jeopardize their friendship for our main event.
