Jaime Bayly, Bisexual Novelist and Peruvian Presidential Candidate, Returns to Miami's Mega TV

Has your late-night television been lacking in sass, conspiracies, and double penises in the past year? Does Conan's gigantic ginger head just not do it for you anymore?

Fear not, amigos mios. Jaime Bayly, el niño terrible of Spanish-language talk-shows, is returning to Miami's Mega TV more than a year after he left.

Bayly is expected to announce his return to U.S. TV during a press conference this afternoon at the Cardozo Hotel in Miami Beach. Peruvian newspaper El Comercio has already reported, however, that the show -- brilliantly entitled Bayly -- will begin on Monday.

For a preview of the openly bisexual novelist and current Peruvian presidential candidate's style, check out the following clip of Bayly interviewing his double-endowed guest below:



As you can see, Bayly is no Charlie Rose. Then again, that's probably a good thing.

Bayly, who was born in Lima, left his long-running Peruvian Sunday talk-show El Francotirador (The Sniper) in October. According to El Comercio, his new hour-long show will air Monday to Friday at 10 p.m.

Bayly is also a novelist. His last book, El Canalla Sentimental (The Sentimental Bastard), was published in December of 2008.
