LUKACHUKAI, Ariz. – Tommy Lowe, 60, is Mąii Deeshgiizhníí born for Táchii’nii. His maternal grandfathers are Tótsohníí and his paternal grandfathers are Naakaii Dine’é. Raised northwest of Lukachukai, Ariz., he continues to live and work there today.

As a result, this is the least persuasive entry in the...

Running Time: 102 minutes

Most late-night shows look like smoothly produced and effortless exercises in entertainment, bringing stand-up and celebrity guests together and speaking about latest projects and topics of the day.

The new comedy Late Night attempts to shed some light on the process and one woman’s attempt to fulfill her aspirations.

Chemical plant worker Molly Patel (Mindy Kaling) has always dreamed of being a comedy writer and after talking to a company head who also owns a TV...
