Comedy Central has settled on a replacement series when The Colbert Report goes off the air this December following Stephen Colbert’s move to The Late Show, and unsurprisingly it will see another The Daily Show correspondent taking the helm. Deadline reports that “Senior Black Correspondent” Larry Wilmore will host The Minority Report with Larry Wilmore in the post-Daily Show 11:30pm slot on Comedy Central. Though Wilmore wasn’t the obvious choice given that his appearances on The Daily Show are more irregular than others (my money was on Samantha Bee), he’s incredibly funny and will bring some welcome diversity to the late night landscape.
Wimore is attached as showrunner on the just-picked-up ABC comedy Black-ish, but he’ll work to get that show off the ground before segueing to The Minority Report, which will launch in January 2015. Jon Stewart will serve as executive producer on the new series, just as he does on The Colbert Report. Hit the jump to check out a couple of Wilmore’s more memorable Daily Show segments.
