Colbert Report replacement The Nightly Show premieres January 19th

New, 23 comments

With Stephen Colbert moving to CBS next year — the last episode of The Colbert Report is this Thursday — The Daily Show with Jon Stewart's new lead-out is, appropriately, The Nightly Show with Larry Wilmore. According to a new promo, the show premieres January 19th at 11:30PM.

The show, which was originally announced as The Minority Report but changed to avoid "brand confusion," is still a work in progress but will feature a scripted, Meet the Press-style roundtable section. (In an interview with The New York Times, Wilmore notes that at one point he considered naming the show "Meet the Rest.")

Not only will the show be in Colbert's old timeslot but it will also film from Colbert's old studio (the Report set is currently being auctioned off for charity).
