'The Nightly Show' Debuts, and More Small Screen News

Hosted by

Comedy Central debuted its brand new talk show, The Nightly Show with Larry Wilmore, last night. It’s the only late-night program not hosted by a white guy, and the show features panel-style discussions instead of one-on-one interviews. We talk about The Nightly Show’s premiere, how it’s breaking the mold, and other news from the small screen in our weekly television roundup.
