Be Afraid

The John Mayer Show

Tabloid cover boy and part-time singer John Mayer will be bounding on stage a la Ed Sullivan and The Smothers Brothers to host his own music, variety, and sketch show on CBS early next year, reports TMZ. The news begs many questions: Will he tap his ever-revolving harem of romantic partners for his inaugural show and will his sign-off be, instead of an ear tug, a whispery love song? CBS executives reportedly liked what they saw in a TMZ video, and Grammy and Emmy producer Ken Ehrlich is onboard, which makes this one of the more notable jumps from a short online video to prime-time.
