'The Straight Out Report' Premieres November 7 on Logo, Hosted by Stephen Guarino and Mike E. Winfield

The Straight Out Report premieres November 7 on Logo.
Logo TV will debut a new comedic/satirical program, The Straight Out Report, on Friday, November 7 at 10 p.m. ET/PT. Hosts Stephen Guarino, who's gay, and Mike E. Winfield, who's straight, agree, disagree, and agree to disagree on a week’s roundup of everything from high culture to low. This marks the first time that two men of different sexual orientations and races have co-hosted a weekly television show focused on their perspectives around the news of the day.

"By spotlighting each host’s distinct and hilarious viewpoint, The Straight Out Report not only offers a fresh perspective on the headlines and newsmakers of the day, but also underscores that comedy is the perfect device to emphasize our similarities and differences," said Pamela Post, Vice President of Programming of Logo TV.

Stephen Guarino is a comedian and actor who is best known for playing Derrick in ABC's Happy Endings, a role he currently continues to play in NBC's Marry Me. He also appears in MTV's Finding Carter. Guarino was a cast member of Logo TV's sketch comedy The Big Gay Sketch Show, and appeared in the film Confessions of a Shopaholic. He was nominated for an Indie Series Award this year for his work in Hustling.

Mike E. Winfield made his comedic debut on The Late Show with David Letterman and had a recurring role on NBC's The Office.

The Straight Out Report will include a guest appearance each week from a star of social media who will join the hosts to cheer and jeer the week’s online trends.

Together Guarino and Winfield will discuss segments including:

Enough With The… – Topics that have been getting too much attention. News items, trends, fashions, memes, and anything else we’re sick and tired of hearing about are fair game.

The IT List – A quick cheat sheet of the things that will be important in pop culture, sending you into your weekend in the know.

Unintentional Gay Moment – Clips from current news or archives of film, TV and the internet that turn out to be "unintentionally gay."

THIS Was Actually On Television – Something that was broadcast to everyone everywhere and should never have been on TV.

Trendspotting – Mike and Steve riff on the items that were trending on Twitter this week.

Your New Best Friend - Our social media guest star names people they think you should be friends with on Facebook or follow on Twitter.
