MTV is getting a dose of the D-O-double-G. According to The Hollywood Reporter, MTV has given rapper Snoop Dogg his own variety show on the network, dubbed Dogg After Dark.
The weekly series will offer a blend of interviews, sketch comedy and musical performances. The network has set a premiere date for February 17 at 9 PM ET.
"Snoop has been a mainstay across MTV screens for over a decade by pushing the boundaries of hip-hop with his signature antics, incredible catalog of music, legendary videos, larger-than-life personality and even a little controversy," said Van Toffler, president, MTV Networks. "I can't even begin to imagine MTV, my tumultuous career and several raging ulcers without the Dogg being such a big part of our history."
