Abby Elliott To Host Reductress’s Late-Night Pilot

Best known for satirizing women’s media on the Internet, Reductress is bringing its brand of absurd humor to television. Comedy Central has ordered The Reductress Hour pilot, which SNL alumna Abby Elliott will host in character, not unlike Stephen Colbert’s persona on The Colbert Report. Reductress co-founders Beth Newell and Sarah Pappalardo will executive produce the pilot in coordination with a crew of experienced producers, including Elliott. The late-night show will tackle “the absurdities of women’s news, trends, broader national subjects and entertainment television” and address hot topics with original segments and field interviews.
