Comedy Central Renews Larry Wilmore’s ‘Nightly Show’ For New Season!

Comedy News

Comedy Central has picked up freshman late-night entry “The Nightly Show” for another season, ensuring host Larry Wilmore and crew will be in position through the end of 2016.

The Viacom-owned network confirmed details published previously by CNNMoney.com. Wilmore is said to have discussed details of the pickup during a taping of his program on Monday evening.

The move keeps Wilmore, who has stood apart from the wee-hours pack by delving into edgy humor about race, gender and culture, on Comedy Central through the 2016 election for U.S. President.

Wilmore and his team, which includes executive producer Rory Albanese, head writer Robin Thede, and contributor Mike Yard, have taken an experimental approach to late-night comedy, showing a willingness to rip up the show’s playbook and try new things. The program provides a sometimes gritty alternative to the broadcast-network options around midnight by having the host explore everything from the sex scandal surrounding Bill Cosby to gang activity in Baltimore.
