Larry Wilmore to take over Stephen Colbert’s time slot with ‘The Minority Report’ on Comedy Central



Comedy Central isn’t wasting any time — “Daily Show” correspondent Larry Wilmore will take over Stephen Colbert’s time slot in 2015, the network announced Friday night.

“The Minority Report with Larry Wilmore,” created and produced by “Daily Show” host Jon Stewart, will debut next January after “The Colbert Report” wraps up for good this year, airing at 11:30 p.m. Colbert, of course, is heading over to CBS to take over “The Late Show” from David Letterman in 2015.

Wilmore, 52, is a familiar face to “Daily Show” fans — he’s been on the late-night show since 2006 and currently serves as “Senior Black Correspondent.” In addition, Wilmore, a veteran comedy writer, co-created “The PJs” (the animated show with Eddie Murphy) as well as the Emmy-winning “Bernie Mac Show.” Fans of “The Office” might also recognize him as the guy who ran the “Diversity Day” seminar; he also served as a consulting producer on the NBC comedy series.

1. The inside story at Comedy Central is that Colbert had to leave 'cause conservatives ...

... we're starting to catch on that he's lampooning them.

2. That is took this long for them to figure out say a lot about Colbert as well as the cons.

Colbert is that good and the cons are that dumb.

3. The inside story from where

Fox?

He left because he was offered a network late night show.
He was offered it because his 18-49 demographics are great.
Win-win.
