The Nightly Show’ Gets Cancelled

Larry Wilmore is out at Comedy Central. The network has cancelled “The Nightly Show” after a year-and-a-half.

“Unfortunately, it hasn’t connected with our audience in ways that we need it to,” Kent Alterman, the network president, explains, “both in the linear channel and in terms of multi-platform outlets and with shareable content and on social platforms as well.”

Wilmore himself released a statement, and he didn’t hold back. “I’m really grateful to Comedy Central, Jon Stewart, and our fans to have had this opportunity,” the host says. “But I’m also saddened and surprised we won’t be covering this crazy election or ‘The Unblackening’ as we’ve coined it. And keeping it 100, I guess I hadn’t counted on ‘The Unblackening’ happening to my time slot as well.”

The last episode of “The Nightly Show” will air on Thursday and so far, there’s no word on a replacement for the 11:30pm slot. In the meantime, Chris Hardwick‘s “@Midnight” will move up a half hour.
