HONOLULU (HawaiiNewsNow) - Ever since The Colbert Report left Comedy Central in 2014, the cable network has struggled to find a steady ratings replacement. Word is that David Spade will try his hand at a new late night program following The Daily Show with Trevor Noah. The new David Spade talk show will go in a different direction with “signature take on the pop culture news of the day.” Back in 2005-2007 Spade was the host of a weekly comedy series poking fun at various headlines from that week’s entertainment news.
Reel News Hawaii posted yesterday that they got a report from a Captain of a Delta Airlines flight, that David Spade arrived “Safe and Sound” in the islands Monday. The new Adam Sandler-Produced Netflix film “The Wrong Missy” looks like it’s being filmed here in Hawaii and David Spade is the star. Not even 24 hours later and fan pics have been showing up on Instagram!
