Plot Synopsis

Executive produced by and starring Ali Wentworth, NIGHTCAP is a scripted comedy series that takes a satirical look at the late-night TV landscape, set behind the scenes of the fictitious talk show "Nightcap With Jimmy." Each half-hour episode covers the hectic 22 minutes prior to a live airing of "Nightcap," which are fraught with insanity, urgency, absurdity, laughter and lip-sync rehearsals. Plus, A-list celebrities stop by each week -- just as they would on any real-life talk show -- only this time, viewers get an exaggerated look at the hilarity backstage. On Tuesday, November 15, 2016 at 10:35pm ET/PT, Pop premiered a quarter-hour sneak peek of NIGHTCAP, which officially debuted the following day at 8pm with back-to-back new episodes featuring guest stars Sarah Jessica Parker, Kelly Ripa, Mark Consuelos and Andy Cohen in the series opener, and Gwyneth Paltrow, Jim Norton and Nate Berkus in episode two. Other celebrity guests in Season 1 include Paul Rudd, Beth Stern, Debra Messing, Whoopi Goldberg, George Stephanopoulos, Denis Leary, Michael J. Fox, Mark Cuban, Jim Gaffigan, Janeane Garofalo, Mariska Hargitay, Tim Gunn, Rosie Perez, Jason Biggs, GiGi Gorgeous, Mario Batali, and Joel Schumacher.
On Wednesday, January 11, 2017 at 8:30pm ET/PT, Pop premiered the Season 1 finale of NIGHTCAP. In the season ender, "Guest in a Snake," Staci interviews for an Executive Producer position at Wendy Williams and seriously considers leaving Nightcap. Mariska Hargitay has agreed to be eaten by an anaconda on air, and Todd gets to direct his first shoot starring Rosie Perez -- until Joel Schumacher intervenes. Two weeks before the series opener, NIGHTCAP was renewed for a second season on October 27.
