Larry Wilmore to fill in for Stephen Colbert at Comedy Central

Posted May 10, 2014

Stephen Colbert announced he was leaving “The Colbert Report” to take over David Letterman’s “Late Show” hosting job. This left a job open for a show after The Daily Show With Jon Stewart.

Now we know that the “Senior Black Correspondent” from The Daily Show, Larry Wilmore, is replacing Colbert. The new show will be called “The Minority Report With Larry Wilmore” and it will premiere at the 11:30PM ET slot in 2015.

Wilmore has been a regular contributor at the Daily Show since 2006. Wilmore worked as the co-creator of The Bernie Mac Show. The replacement for Craig Ferguson is still unknown.
