‘The Nightly Show with Larry Wilmore’ Premieres on Comedy Central January 19th

larry_wilmoreLarry Wilmore’s upcoming Comedy Central show just got a new title and premiere date. Now called The Nightly Show with Larry Wilmore, the show will take over The Colbert Report’s 11:30pm time slot beginning Monday, January 19th. Wilmore told The New York Times that the name change was due to “brand confusion” and explained that it “was never intended to be a show only about minorities. It’s a show about underdogs, and that happens in a lot of different forms, whether it’s race, gender, or whatever.”
