The new show titled Earth to Ned is a fresh take on the late-night talk show format that America is famous for and includes an alien commander host called Ned and his lieutenant, Cornelius.
Here’s a summary of the show, courtesy of the official announcement from Disney:
From The Jim Henson Company comes a brand new talk show hosted by alien commander Ned and his lieutenant Cornelius, who call off the invasion of Earth after they fall in love with human culture. Broadcasting from the bridge of their spaceship, hidden deep underground, Ned and Cornelius interview Earth’s greatest resource, celebrities. With the help of the ship’s artificial intelligence, BETI, and the destructive CLODs (Cloned Living Organisms of Destruction), Ned must keep his show a secret from his home planet or suffer the wrath of his father, the Admiral of the Galactic Fleet.
Each episode of the show will focus on a different topic or theme that is unique to Earth and fascinating to Ned. Episode topics include:
- Social Media
