Ever since Chelsea Handler packed up and moved to Netflix, television has been without a female late-night host. Luckily, that drought is now over.

TLC just announced a brand-new late-night talk show, All About Sex, featuring an all-female panel of hosts. Margaret Cho will host along with Chelsea Lately's Heather McDonald, Hairspray's Marissa Jaret Winokur, and sex and relationship therapist Dr. Tiffanie Davis Henry.

According to DeadlineAll About Sex will start with just six episodes, running after the guilty-pleasure classic Sex Sent Me to the ER. The hosts will chat about the latest sex and love news, take viewer questions over the phone and on social media, and answer the sex questions that you just can't Google.  

The half-hour series starts January 10 at 11 p.m., and is the first late-night talk show ever on TLC. Cable networks like FX and MTV have also tried (and failed) to start hit late-night shows, so Cho and her co-hosts can break the pattern and create the next Daily Show—or at least something to fill the void left by Chelsea Lately.
