[ # ] Comedy Central impeaches The Nightly Show with Larry Wilmore
August 15th, 2016 under Comedy Central

Comedy Central announced today that this Thursday’s episode of The Nightly Show with Larry Wilmore will be its last. The show debuted last January, but it never connected with audiences both on the small screen and virally, thus their decision.
Comedy Central president Kent Alterman told Variety, “We hold Larry in the highest esteem, personally and professionally. He brought a strong voice and point of view to the late-night landscape,” adding, “Unfortunately it hasn’t resonated with our audience.” Therefore their decision.
While the news is not surprising, it is surprising that they cancelled it before the Presidential election. You would think they would’ve kept it until mid-November, but guess not.
Since I like conspiracy theories, I want to know why they made this decision now. My theory is that are thinking of bringing back Stephen Colbert who is not doing well over at CBS. It would make sense right?
At this time, The Hollywood Reporter says that Trevor Noah is safe. But since he is also not doing well in the ratings and barely getting much social media attention, I think his days are numbered too. Which gives more credence to my theory about Colbert.
Especially since at this point they are not planning to replace that show until the new year at the earliest.
