Comedy Central is going for a theme with the names of its late-night shows — The Daily Show, The Nightly Show, @midnight. The network’s new 11:30 PM program, which will replace The Colbert Report, will be titled The Nightly Show With Larry Wilmore, Comedy Central announced. The show’s original title, Minority Report With Larry Wilmore, was risking confusion over Fox’s proposed Minority Report series based on the Steven Spielberg movie.
The Nightly Show With Larry Wilmore will premiere on January 19. The Colbert Report finale airs on December 18.
