Larry Wilmore says Comedy Central#8217s cancellation of The Nightly Show must mean one thing: racism is no longer a problem in the U.S.
In an opening monologue that kicked off the final week of his show, Wilmore addressed the news by thanking Comedy Central and the show#8217s viewers, but he also offered a more tongue-in-cheek response.
#8220On the plus side, I must say, our show going off the air has to only mean one thing: Racism is solved,#8221 Wilmore quipped. #8220We did it.#8221The Brief Newsletter Sign up to receive the top stories you need to know right now. View Sample Sign Up Now
The Nightly Show began in January 2015 as a late-night show centered largely on the subject of race. Low ratings and the show#8217s inability to connect with audiences contributed to its cancellation, according to Comedy Central.
Wilmore said that his only regret was that the late-night show would not be around #8220to cover this truly insane election season.#8221
The final episode of The Nightly Show will air Thursday at 11:30 p.m. Chris Hardwick#8217s @midnight will air in the timeslot for the time being.
