Plot Synopsis

Hosted by alien commander Ned and his lieutenant Cornelius, each episode of this late-night talk-show parody focuses on a topic or theme that is both equally unique to earthlings and fascinating to Ned, including comedy, sports, social media, and fashion. Not long ago, Ned and Cornelius were ready to invade Earth, but they called off the invasion after they fell in love with human culture. Now, broadcasting from the bridge of their spaceship, hidden deep underground, Ned and Cornelius interview Earth's greatest resource: celebrities. With the help of the ship's artificial intelligence, BETI, and the destructive CLODs (Cloned Living Organisms of Destruction), Ned must keep his show a secret from his home planet or suffer the wrath of his father, the Admiral of the Galactic Fleet. On Friday, September 4, 2020 Disney+ released first 10 episodes of Season 1, featuring these celebrity guests (in alphabetical order by last name): Joshua Bassett, Rachel Bilson, Michael Ian Black, Rachel Bloom, Gina Carano, RuPaul, Taye Diggs, Lil Rel Howery, Bindi and Robert Irwin, Gillian Jacobs, NeNe Leakes, Thomas Lennon, Joel McHale, Andy Richter, Olivia Rodrigo, Eli Roth, Kristen Schaal, Paul Scheer, Jenny Slate, Raven Symone, Reggie Watts, and Billy Dee Williams.
