I tried Larry Wilmore I tweeted, posted and told anyone who didn’t like The Nightly Show to give it another try but if what comedy central said was true I guess I was the one. Now to those who didn’t watch you have missed out on a heck of a show. Yes the issues Wilmore talked about were hard to hear but they were important and needed to be discussed. I actually learned much about race issues from the show and its contributors and if I am Keepin it 100 that is saying a lot for this 36 year old white girl who has always judged a person on what they are on the inside not out..
So here is to Larry Wilmore, Rory Albanese, Ricky Velez, Mike Yard, Robin Thede, Grace Parra, Franchesca Ramsey, Jordan Carlos, Holly Walker and all who worked on the show. You were awesome and loved. I will never forget The Y Files, Pardon the Integration, #HashItOut, Soul Larry and all of the other segments on the show.
You made me laugh a lot but more important unlike other late night shows you made me think and were a smart show from day one. We the viewer may have only had The Nightly Show for 20 months but it made those who watch better people.
GOOD LUCK in the future to all involved
