Jon Stewart Creates ‘Nightly Show’ with Larry Wilmore, Focusing on Unrepresented Views

Jon Stewart + Larry Wilmore

Daily Show veteran Larry Wilmore’s upcoming talk show, which was created by Jon Stewart, will feel like a hybrid of The Daily Show and Politically Incorrect, The Hollywood Reporter said.

Stewart is filling a gaping hole left by Stephen Colbert at 11:30 p.m. with The Nightly Show, a half-hour panel discussion that focuses on underrepresented points of view, be it those of women, African Americans or others not commonly heard on late night TV, the report said.

The first half of each show will present a look at some key events of the day, while the second half will feature a roundtable discussion with a handful of participants, according to Variety.



Wilmore is best known to viewers of the Comedy Central network as the The Daily Show’s “senior black correspondent.” Stewart will serve as an executive producer for the series, as he did for The Colbert Report, the Reporter said.

While promoting the forthcoming show at the Television Critics Association’s press tour on Saturday, Wilmore also reflected on the terrorist attack at the Charlie Hebdo newspaper in France, The Wrap said.

“It’s very tragic…and I think we were all affected, ” Wilmore replied when a reporter asked for his thoughts. “We talked to Jon (Stewart) that day and, whoa, his whole office was kind of numb.”

“My only opinion on it from a slightly comic point of view is, you know, they’re starting to kill satirists just as a brother is about to launch his show, ” Wilmore said. “So the timing of that is a bit scary.”

The Nightly Show will debut on January 19.
