If you love The Daily Show with John Stewart then you'll love The Nightly Show with Larry Wilmore.

We talked about the greatest fictional talk show hosts, but now it's time to talk about a real-life talk show that is gut-bustingly funny. Larry Wilmore is the mastermind behind some of TV's most loved shows including In Living Color, The Bernie Mac Show and Black-ish. He's finally stepping out from behind the scenes and into the lime light with his very own show. Originally, it was supposed to be called The Minority Report but the upcoming show based on the movie killed that.

This show is the smartest and sharpest new talk show on television. Who else could tackle Bill Cosby and - no matter what you believe about the rape allegations - make you laugh?

Here are some clips that prove this is the most provocative show on TV.




Here's the official synopsis: "Larry Wilmore introduces the topics up for discussion on the series premiere of 'The Nightly Show with Larry Wilmore': white people sweeping the Academy Award nominations, Oprah Winfrey taking to the streets of Selma, Alabama, and the state of the black protest."

The official site is at http://www.cc.com/shows/the-nightly-show

Watch The Nightly Show Mon. - Thurs. 11:30/10:30c on Comedy Central.
The Nightly Show will provide viewers with Larry Wilmore's distinct point of view and comedic take on current events and pop culture. Hosted by Wilmore, the series will feature a diverse panel of voices, providing a perspective largely missing in the late-night television landscape.

What do you think of the Nightly Show?

Ha! I know my husband watches The Daily Show on Hulu. Do you think this'll be on Hulu too?

Alex J. Cavanaugh said...

Same question as Loni. Few could tackle the Cosby situation and make you laugh.

Toinette Thomas said...

At this moment, this show is the only reason I wish I had cable.

It is on Hulu Loni! It's a great alternative to TV

It's such a touchy subject but he really knows how to sell it.

Comedy Central is killing it with this show and Key and Peele.

I never watched the Colbert Report or Daily Show.

It's a fun show Pat so you might like it

I've just had a vision of a world without Mike Engel. It was (with apologies to Grumpy Cat) awful.

Good one Jeremy!

Maurice Mitchell said...

Oh yeah. He knew how to sell the soda. Too bad it was a disaster.

I love Fifth Element Loni. That movie is "hot, hot, hot!"

Maurice Mitchell said...

I'd forgotten about Letterman Pat!

I still have my Coca Cola shirts if that counts for anything. ;-)

Dawson was used to surly guests Alex and I always thought it was gutsy for him to play a villain.

Ruby Rhod is number 1 in my book! His daring style is just amazing!
