    Wilmore’s Nightly Show First 3 Months Down Nearly 40% from Colbert

    [​IMG]
    After Stephen Colbert‘s epic departure from Comedy Central last year, media watchers wondered how bad the network would suffer during the 11:30 p.m. half-hour as a result.

    While the Colbert replacement, The Nightly Show with Larry Wilmore, has proven to be a critical success, it has experienced a serious decline in key demo viewership for the network....................

    Maybe white people don't want to be repeatedly told how awful they are. That seems to be the show's main theme.

    When Noah gets on board it will be like an hour long Black Panther rally.

    We'll get to hear how horrible whitey is in South Africa too?
    No Winnie Mandela necklacing jokes though.

    What would black people even talk about if they couldn't fixate on whitey every waking moment?
    Hmmmm.

    This was to be expected. Saying he had big shoes to fill is a colossal understatement.

    Always liked Larry Wilmore when he'd do the Daily Show but I haven't been watching the post-Colbert thing.
    Never have been that big a Colbert fan for that matter.
    My bad.

    Maybe because the Colbert show was great and this Larry show is terrible?

    Larry is ok, but, his on air support staff are severely lacking in humor.

    It's same show every night. Far from must see tv like Colbert was

    It's alright, but panel shows should generally be an hour. He'll have good guests and an interesting topic, then devote 5 minutes to it and the rest of the show to lame bits.

    I've been a fan of Larry WIlmore for years as a writer & showrunner.

    I think he fucking blows ass as a host or Daily Show correspondent/panel dude. Stick behind the cameras, guy, you're an annoying dweeb in front of them. He's got that Oprah black voice, I bet his day-to-day he sounds consistently British like Robin.

    And I did like Colbert, but his show mostly sucked when he'd stop the schtick and do one of his "quirky" college boy bits. I think he's gonna tank as well. He's nothing without his character. Look at his list of accomplishments before creating it.

    And I know of most of you don't watch either of these shows you're into bitching about, but Stewart's show is beyond affirmative action... I haven't tuned-in much at all since the late 90s, but I did once last winter and literally every correspondent or panel dude is black. I guess at least he practices what he preaches, but it's so over-the-top.
