Update: The 1iota ticketing website has removed Chris Jericho, Laila Ali, Mayim Bialik and Kunal Nayyar’s names from the listing for today’s “Drop The Mic” taping.

It is unclear why they were removed, but as no replacements have been announced, it is possible TBS simply did not want word of the celebrity participants getting out early.

Wednesday brought news that Method Man and Hailey Baldwin will be co-hosting TBS’ new “Drop The Mic” series.

It also brought confirmation of the celebrities set to appear at the first taping (which may or may not be the first episode to air).

According to the 1iota ticketing website, Chris Jericho, Laila Ali and “The Big Bang Theory” stars Mayim Bialik and Kunal Nayyar will tape “Drop The Mic” on March 16.

Based on the sketch from “The Late Late Show With James Corden,” the new “Drop The Mic” series will feature weekly rap “battle royales” between four celebrities.

The premiere airs on May 2.
