Larry Wilmore…Canceled

15 Aug

I guess Larry wasn’t “Fact Free” enough…Or white enough after his praise of President Obama.

Comedy Central Cancels Larry Wilmore’s Show

Comedy Central announced Monday it is canceling Larry Wilmore’s The Nightly Show, and the last episode will air Thursday. Comedy Central President Kent Alterman said the show has not been resonating with the cable channel’s audience. “Even though we’ve given it a year and a half, we’ve been hoping against hope that it would start to click with our audience, but it hasn’t happened and we haven’t seen evidence of it happening,” Alterman said. Wilmore recently headlined the White House Correspondents’ Dinner, where he was roundly criticized for using the n-word. Rory Albanese, a comedian who works on the show, tweeted Monday morning: “I’m very proud to have been a part of a show that has been funny, diverse & extremely necessary.”

    I’m not surprised because he wasn’t that funny.

      Jay Leno made it 20 years with lousy jokes.

        But Jay Leno was white and Johnny Carson’s handpicked successor.
