With The Nightly Show, Larry Wilmore Has His Own Brand of Politics to Prosecute

The Nightly Show’s conceit is fairly simple: It’s a news show from the perspective of the under­represented. Besides Wilmore’s monologues, there will be a mix of panelists and recurring players, taped on-the-street segments, and interviews. What Wilmore essentially wants to get at are broader questions of power and powerlessness, the gap between the CEO and the minimum-wage worker: “I look at it in terms of top dog and underdog,” he explains.
