Our First Look At Larry Wilmore’s The Nightly Show
As we enter the final week of Steven Colbert, we also get our first tease at his replacement, Larry Wilmore’s The Nightly Show. The spot is a tongue and cheek jab at the lack of variety in the late night space. With Chelsea Handler leaving her show and Arsenio Hall’s return flopping out into cancellation, it was just a bunch of White Guys once again.
Wilmore is looking to change that and as the clip proposes, he’s doesn’t want to just focus on black people or minorities, but all of America’s underdogs. Given his previous track record of The PJs, The Bennie Mac Show and most recently Blackish, Wilmore is almost certain to pleasantly surprise and enlighten us come January 19th.
