The Rundown with Robin Thede premiered earlier this month in October on BET, and although it’s got a few kinks to work out—as any new show does—its host has already honed a distinct comedic voice and spirit. And that sensibility gives her program must-watch potential, even in its first week.
As a culture we have to make sure we are out supporting Robin Thede and her show. The opportunity for her to be on a late night talk show and it can be seen on BET means alot, so we must do our part.
The Rundown is true to its name; it’s a beat-by-beat recap of the week’s news, as curated by Thede and her team.
Thede’s show is undeniably guided by her outlook as a black woman, which enables and guides her to tackle topics other programs might ignore. Her weekly 11 p.m. show is aimed at black viewers, Ms. Thede said, “I’m speaking to stories that matter to us.”
