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

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.
