Hosted by comedian and actress Sarah Silverman, the upcoming TBS series, Stupid Pet Tricks, is set to premiere with an exclusive multi-network preview on Sunday, February 11, at 5:00 pm ET/2:00 pm PT. The sneak peek will air across TBS, Discovery, truTV, and Animal Planet, followed by a repeat broadcast later that evening.
Subsequent episodes will air on TBS every Monday at 9:00 pm ET/PT starting February 12. The half-hour variety show is a modern version of the beloved David Letterman segment, which captures the original charm, playful entertainment, and celebration of the special connection between humans and their animal companions.
With Silverman’s unique comedic spin, each episode will feature a parade of pets performing ridiculous and extraordinary tricks. Viewers at home will see some surprising guests including Jon Hamm, Will Ferrell, Judd Apatow, Howie Mandel, Jack McBrayer, Charlotte McKinney, Reggie Watts, Jeff Ross and even Letterman himself get in on the fun with their pets, comedic bits, and games. Viewers will also have the chance to have their pets featured on-air each week by posting a video of their trick using # MyStupidPetTrick.
TBS will also embark on The Stupid Pet Tricks Tour, presented by Ollie, makers of human-grade dog food. The multi-city tour will travel across the country allowing pets and their owners to showcase their # MyStupidPetTrick on the pink carpet, strike a pose in a variety of pet-friendly photo moments, and receive special giveaways.
Stupid Pet Tricks is executive produced by Jay Blumenfield and Tony Marsh of The Jay & Tony Show (Tournament of Laughs) with Worldwide Pants, Incorporated (The Late Show with David Letterman) for TBS. David Letterman, Sarah Silverman, and Amy Zvi are executive producers. Merrill Markoe, who created the segment originally, is a consulting producer.
