'The Nightly Show' takes aim at Bill Cosby

Continuing to differentiate itself from "The Colbert Report," "The Nightly Show" dedicated its entire second episode to Bill Cosby and the sexual assault allegations he's facing. It all started with host Larry Wilmore's opening monologue, where he made sure the audience was clear he believes Cosby is guilty. For the nightly panel discussion, Wilmore and his guests -- including comedians Keith Robinson and Kathleen Madigan -- discussed the public's opinion of Cosby in the wake of the wave of allegations and whether or not some of his accusers are lying. When it came time to "Keep It 100" -- a segment where Wilmore asks his guests questions he expects them to answer 100 percent truthfully -- it was he who got the most interesting question of the night. Would he welcome Cosby as a panelist on the show? "Hell yes, I would like to have him! I've got a lot of keeping it real... //feedproxy.google.com/~r/Zap2it/~3/hoMJZgeAXvI/the_nightly_show_with_larry_wilmore_bill_cosby_video-2015-01

'The Nightly Show with Larry Wilmore' comes out swinging: Will you keep watching?

Larry Wilmore has debuted the first episode of "The Nightly Show" -- which replaces "The Colbert Report" -- -and he's already cemented a spot as a legitimate late night contender. Right out of the gate, Wilmore used the his time to shed light on -- and poke fun at -- the racial issues plaguing society."The Oscar nominees came out and they're so white a grand jury has decided not to indict them," he joked to open the show. Unlike Colbert, Wilmore doesn't look like he'll be performing in character. Instead he's relying on the jokes and his comedic chops to carry the show's humor.Wilmore also introduced a panel discussion -- a new idea that helps his show stand out among Comedy Central's late night talk shows. He was joined by musician Talib Kweli, New Jersey Senator Cory Booker, Indian model and actress Shenaz Treasurywala and comedian Bill Burr to discuss the race issues in the... //feedproxy.google.com/~r/Zap2it/~3/fsdL1tor5NU/the_nightly_show_with_larry_wilmore_premiere_poll-2015-01

The Most Important Shows on TV: Week of January 19, 2015

Which TV series will your friends (and the entire internet) be talking about this week? Stay informed—or at least be able to fake it—with SideReel's weekly guide to The Most Important Shows on TV.   The Nightly Show With Larry Wilmore (Series Premiere) Monday at 11:30pm on Comedy Central Why: Because the very funny Larry Wilmore is taking over The Colbert Report 's old slot! Sure, he'll eventually be up against the former host of Report , but Comedy Central is still where we all (or at least we few, we happy few, we band of viewers) go for the REAL news of the day. Prepare to talk about: Is it possible that  The Daily Show  has spawned yet another powerhouse host (except for oafish and deservedly forgotten Craig Kilborn)? Who makes Wilmore's amazing glasses and how do you get some? When is Jessica Williams going to get her own show? Did they really have to call it  The Nightly Show ?   The Vampire Diaries               (Midseason Premiere) Thursday at 8:00pm on The CW Why: I'll be honest here: I know very little about this show other than that it's the platonic ideal of CW dramas, the kids today really like it, the two main dudes in it are regular brothers AND vampire brothers (how did that happen, by the way? You're not born a vampire, except in the last  Twilight  movie and even then it's like, come on), and that they both want the girl, whose name I know to be Elena. The point here is that you don't have to watch it, you just need to know the bare minimum to  sound  like you watched it. That is the entire point of this feature. You've all learned my secret. Prepare to talk about:  How CRAZY it was that Elena (the aforementioned girl) was kidnapped by Kai, and is probably fine because without a certain level of stasis this show can't go on; why Kai is so evil; seriously, what's the deal with Kai?! (Just pose these questions rhetorically and let the other person in the conversation talk.)   Sons of Liberty (Mini-Series Premiere) Sunday at 9:00pm on History Channel Why:  Because you love America, but more importantly, you love the History Channel's reenactments, especially when Dean Norris (of Breaking Bad   and  Under the Dome  fame) is playing OG Ben Franklin. Also, they hauled Steve Guttenberg out for this! STEVE GUTTENBERG!  Prepare to talk about:  How they hired an irishman to play George Washington (though I mean, Mr. First President wasn't born an American, so maybe we shouldn't care?); what (if any) beer jokes the guy playing Samuel Adams gets to make; why, in promotional materials for this, Paul Revere was branded "The Thug" because that seems pretty harsh, right? It's not like he was a hockey player (though that would have been awesome/hot).     Leah E. Friedman  is the editor of SideReel.com. You can follow her musings on  Twitter .
