“I’m excited about the show, I’m excited about the title and I’m really, really excited to drop my first F-bomb on TV,” Simmons said in the press release. “We are going to figure out nudity down the road, as long as it’s tasteful.”

The 30-minute weekly talk show is expected to feature guests that will discuss sports, arts, entertainment and technology.
