Written after 2/3 episodes (I am white from England): Still bedding in to be 100% !! It has a good feel about it - although it does feel very black. I get that same feeling with Lenny Henry humour. Given time this will become a classic but different to 'The Daily Show'. Keep an eye on this one.
Update: I think that The Nightly Show will become the new Jon Stewart Daily Show - Larry and his team are very very good.
Update#2: Great social commentary. I just did not realise that in USA government dept. (Police etc) that racism was still so bad in USA.
WHY is this show so short. It could have a commentary on events then an interview plus some entertainment - say 40 mins plus adverts.

This FAST PACED and DEEP (be sure to watch with a REWIND/PAUSE button)show will certainly raise the question of WHY IS EVERYTHING BLACK FOCUSED? and my answer is that there is SO MUCH FOR HIM TO DISCUSS, that there just isn't time to deal with anything that doesn't have a black/minority of your choice, topic for the show.

He is MENTORING some new talent too. The two supporting characters look like they will have more stage time (the woman from last night, and the comedian tonight who told us what Bill Cosby should have felt/said)

A little over a year in, and this show went, for me, to being something a watch 3-5 times a month, to watching every episode. The show feels likes it's hit it's rhythm now. I think it will continue to improve, as the whole cast is great. I just wish it were longer.

Wilmore tries too hard to make jokes based on race. My question to him is: so it is racist to say, "I didn't vote for him because he is black", why it is not racist for you to say, "I voted for him just because he is black"? And everyone in the audience applauds at this prejudice.
