The Nightly Show with Larry Wilmore to replace Colbert Report
They say all things must come to an end. If you’re like us and you’re a fan of Stephen Colbert and The Colbert Report, then you may already be aware of the coming changes Comedy Central is putting into effect.
For starters, The Colbert Report ending its 9 year run comes to us because Mr. Colbert got a new gig.
David Letterman is retiring in 2015 and who better the replace him than Stephen Colbert? Colbert will take over the helm as the host of the Late Show. This leaves a gap in Comedy Central’s line up after Jon Stewart and the Daily Show. Enter Larry Wilmore.
Larry Wilmore has made several appearances on The Daily Show, so he’s no rookie. The Nightly Show will premiere on January 19th via Comedy Central right after the Daily Show.
Here’s a new promotional video for The Nightly Show with Larry Wilmore. Stay tuned!
