Showtime announced last week that late-night talk show “Desus & Mero” would not return for a fifth season because the show’s hosts, Desus Nice and Kid Mero, are “pursuing separate creative endeavors moving forward.” Puck shed light on the abrupt end of the duo’s partnership, explaining their manager, Victor Lopez, was the cause of the split. Sources told Puck that Showtime had allegedly asked Lopez to stop working on the show due to accusations of abusive behavior toward employees. While Desus agreed with the network’s decision, Mero felt it would be disloyal.
