‘Senior Black Correspondent’ Larry Wilmore to move to Colbert time slot with “The Minority Report”
Comedy Central has decided who will fill the gap after Stephen Colbert moves to the Late Show. Comedy Central has pulled from the ranks of “The Best F*&#ing News Team Ever!” and today announces the Emmy Award-winning Larry Wilmore as the host of the #1 brand in comedy’s next great late night franchise.
Wilmore will take over the highly-coveted post-“Daily Show” time slot in January 2015 as host of “The Minority Report with Larry Wilmore,” a comedic look at news, current events and pop culture from unique perspectives not typically on display in late night television. The series was created by Jon Stewart and will be produced by Stewart’s Busboy Productions with Stewart and Wilmore serving as Executive Producers.
