JOHN STEWART GIVES LARRY WILMORE THE SEND OFF HE DESERVES



Comedy Central cancelled one of its only black shows, Larry Wilmore's "The Nightly Show" because it didn't resonate with Comedy Central's audience  -- because the audience is mostly white? And the audience is mostly white because so many of the shows are...all white? I'm just guessing that cancelling Wilmore's show is just going to get Comedy Central more of the same. 

I've never been a Comedy Central fan, but I've seen Wilmore on occasion. He was good. And his stand up routine for President Obama was daring to say the least. I can't help but wonder if that skit didn't help scuttle his show --- just as the election heats up. 

But maybe I'm being a little too conspiracy theory-ish

Very few details on the cancellation






Feeling Rebloggy
