TVLine Items: Matt Rife’s Netflix Special, Miss USA Moves to The CW and More

Matt Rife’s moment has arrived: The viral stand-up comic has landed his first Netflix special, which will debut on the streamer later this year.

Rife will film the special on September 22 and 23 at DAR Constitution Hall in Washington D.C. during a stop on his sold-out “ProbleMATTic” world tour, Netflix announced on Friday. A veteran of MTV/VH1’s Wild ‘N Out who has built a massive following on TikTok, Rife “leaves no topic untouched — from crystals to social media trolls — and no audience member spared,” per the official description.
