The Nightly Show was cancelled, which bums me out as Wilmore picked up nicely from Stewart with the outrage..  Apparently it was cancelled in part because it wasn't creating content for the youtube generation... so  are we really living in a world where nonsense like lip sync battle and car seat karoke is what people want... get off my damn lawn...

I wasn't a huge fan of the panel segments, but the other stuff was pretty good.
I very much enjoyed much of The Nightly Show and actually preferred his panel segments. I felt the skits to be too absurd, cliched and lazy. I enjoyed Larry's nerdcore dad-like delivery and take on the topics of the day. I vote to bring back Tough Crowd, though without Patrice. . . Maybe I'm just a sucker for panels.
WHAT?

it was cancelled because his viewership was low. he didn't have the numbers to stay alive.  social media is one way of getting eyeballs, but not the only way.  unfortunately wilmore didn't have social media on his side nor those other ways...

It was cancelled, because he sucks big gay dick as a humorist.  The WHCD, proved that.

Also, he thinks everything is about race.  Boring, and tired.

This is what really turned me off about that show. They also had a lot more "funny" people and personalities vs actual intellectual people and whenever the panel had someone "intellectual" I felt like it boiled down to "Why should we care!?" about shit and it really turned me off. I think John Oliver is doing the best right now. Last Week Tonight is fantastic.

I call this the reddit/South-Park-ization on America. Just say everything sucks and/or is meaningless and offer no actual solutions of your own.

RG III and out, indeed
I mean, I understand "til death do us part" but moving to Cleveland is a whole 'nother ball of wax.

I was dumbfounded. He was so great on TDS, but I guess he's only good for a couple bits here and there. Should have been Wyatt Cenac.

This Ryan Lochte story is just the best. Footage just leaked for him and his boys. . . well . . . taking a leak on that gas station. Best story of the Olympics.

shaun white, the snowboarder guy who once was the darling of this country, has been thrown into negative spotlight, as well as introducing the world to poo porn.  it could be a scam to get money from him, but good lord, I just had to figure out what poo porn was, when I saw it in the story, since I had no clue what the hell that was.  why, did I have, to figure that out.
