Larry Wilmore, who is best known as The Daily Show’s senior black correspondent, will be doing his reports about a half-hour later than normal from now on.
That’s because Comedy Central has pegged Wilmore to replace departing host Stephen Colbert. The show will be called The Minority Report, which is fucking brilliant.
Comedy Central was in a difficult spot picking a host, with many members of the media wanting the network to break the mold of old, white male hosts. Here’s hoping this effort is a success. It premieres in January 2015.
