In approximately 100 hours (Who’s counting? Okay, we are. What? We’re excited.) Nikki Glaser and Sara Schaefer will become your favorite faces in late night TV (yep, even over that tall ginger they call Coco) when the premiere of their new show, “Nikki & Sara LIVE,” airs at 11/10c. That means you have roughly 100 hours to school yourself on the deep roots the ladies have already planted in the MTV garden. That’s right–this may be Nikki and Sara’s first foray into the hosting (and mind melding) game on our channel, but they’ve been making valuable contributions here for years.
First off, did you know that Sara’s first appearance on MTV was a brief 2007 spot on “The Hills,” where she totally held her own against LC’s salty stare? Not even K-Cav could handle a standoff with this much gusto:
And, you’ve obviously heard about Justin Timberlake’s recent return (FINALLY) to the recording studio with “Suit & Tie,” but it’s a little-known fact that JT bringing sexy back (again) is a direct result of this NSFW PSA plea made by Nikki and Sara in 2011.
Want to learn even more about the blonde half of the irreverent twosome that’s taking over the former “TRL” stage? Check out this clip of Nikki’s standup to understand why she doesn’t quite fit the “Teen Mom” bill.
Now, if you’re really ready to take that next step towards an exclusive “Nikki & Sara relationship, listen up….to every episode of the podcast that started it all. The girls made a big name for themselves with “You Had to Be There,” so it’s crucial you prep yourselves with it before the show’s premiere on MTV, UStream, MTV.com and MTV Mobile Tuesday, January 29, at 11/10c. The clock is ticking! Go get your Sikki learn on.
