BUSY PHILIPPS RETURNS TO LATE-NIGHT WITH “BUSY THIS WEEK”

QVC+ today announced New York Times best-selling author, actor, activist and writer Busy Philipps is jumping back into the late-night talk show host seat with “Busy This Week,” a new original series exclusively on the QVC+ streaming experience. Executive produced by Busy Philipps, Caissie St. Onge and Michael Gleason, “Busy This Week” is the latest original series to join the growing roster of original lifestyle programming on QVC+.

During each half-hour episode, viewers will join Busy on the couch to get an unscripted take on whatever has kept us busy this week. From celebrity guest interviews and laugh-out-loud moments to personal stories and her favorite curated shopping finds, Busy will give her audience a healthy dose of [retail] therapy. “Busy This Week” will premiere on QVC+ May 8 at 10:00 PM EDT as a split season. The first 10 episodes will be released weekly on Wednesdays, and then four holiday-themed episodes will premiere in November and December for a total of 14 episodes.

“Caissie and I wanted to create a late-night show experience where women feel seen and the topics, guests and products shared are always worthy of that sacred time of day when she finally gets to unwind,” said Busy Philipps. “When we tried to get a seat at the late-night table to bring this concept to life, there didn’t seem to be any room for women. But when we came to QVC+, they immediately recognized this was something special and we recognized their platform was perfect for reaching our audience. Instead of just giving us a seat, they gave us the whole table.”

Caissie St. Onge added: “While late-night comedy shows have experienced a sea of change over the last few years, the one constant has been the lack of representation by women and for women in the category. There’s an audience of women today who feel largely forgotten when it comes to late-night shows. That’s why Busy and I wanted to create a show where they finally felt represented and could see themselves reflected in every episode.”

Bringing an added unique layer to the show experience, “Busy This Week” will have a series show page featuring shoppable products from each episode including Busy and Caissie’s weekly looks, set décor and Busy’s favorite new brands featured on the show, which viewers can easily shop through QVC.com. Busy is also no stranger to the QVC+ family having first debuted on the channel in December 2022 in the holiday special “Busy for the Holidays” where she shared her best tips, tricks, hacks and snacks to get through the season stress-free.

“We know our customers come to us for an escape from the never-ending demands in their daily lives. So, it’s critical the content we create makes them feel like they belong – and creates an environment they want to be part of – through the connections they build with our hosts, guests, and the brands we offer,” said Stacie Tedesco, VP, Interim Streaming GM, Qurate Retail Group. “We’re reimagining our streaming experience by focusing on highly curated, story-driven shoppable entertainment that not only inspires, but also earns her time. And that’s exactly what our customers will experience every time they tune-in for ‘Busy This Week’ on QVC+ with host Busy Philipps.”

The QVC+ and HSN+ combined streaming experience is available free in more than 100 million internet-connected homes across the U.S. and offers QVC® and HSN®‘s most robust, comprehensive video commerce experience, with live, on-demand and streaming-only content together in one, easy-to-use, fully shoppable app. Missed a show or episode?
