The Nightly Show With Larry Wilmore: Season 1 (2015)



Critic Consensus: The Nightly Show is distinguished from its political comedy forebears by host Larry Wilmore's mirthful insight and refreshing candor about race, making for a looser talk show program that affords viewers a generous helping of food for thought.

Critic Reviews for The Nightly Show With Larry Wilmore Season 1

All Critics (13) | Top Critics (8)

Fair or not, there aren't a lot of television programs that look like The Nightly Show. Wilmore's is taking that fact and running right at it.

It's great to see somebody experimenting with what to do in those 22 or so minutes, even if it may take a little time to get all the wrinkles out.

The Nightly Show seems consciously designed to laugh at the confusions and mystifications that ideological identities, left or right, trail in their wake.

The first episode was smart, a little bit edgy, intermittently hilarious and full of observations you wouldn't get from Stewart, Colbert or Maher.

He's got some work to do in the pacing of the table discussions, but Wilmore's sensibility is immediately relatable: common sense enlivened by a healthy dissatisfaction with the status quo.

Even though many aspects of the show are scripted, there's still a freshness to the panel discussions and Q-and-A sessions that always yield some surprises.

Wilmore was off to a good start Monday night -- a little muted, which is his style anyway, and a little tentative, as would be expected. But he landed some punches and clearly had more than a little fun.

The premiere of The Nightly Show with Larry Wilmore on Monday night was an entertaining look at a promising new show.

Jan 21, 2015 | Full Review…

As for the host himself, what he brings to late night and the format in general, Wilmore's got it. I, for one, am in.

Jan 21, 2015 | Rating: 3/4 | Full Review…

Though nothing about Wilmore's show is especially fresh, it might just be revolutionary.
