As Larry Wilmore Leaves Late Night, TV Loses a Singular Voice

18 August 2016 6:31 AM, PDT | Variety - TV News | See recent Variety - TV News news »

Larry Wilmore says he long harbored the thought his “Nightly Show” might come to an end in ten years, not later this evening. When he signs off for the last time from Comedy Central around midnight tonight, something else will also cease and desist.

For approximately 20 months, Wilmore and his staff have cultivated a unique voice among the TV industry’s ever-increasing number of wee-hours talk-fests. Where many of the late-night hosts seek to entertain, Wilmore always hoped to make viewers just a little uncomfortable. The clocks on his set ran backwards. The graphics that accompanied his riffs and rants appeared at the lower bottom left of the screen, invoking a sort of topsy-turvy feeling among fans.

“Nightly,” you see, was always supposed to examine what it might feel like to be down even when the rest of the world might be up. The idea was to shine a light on the plight of classes of people »

Dl Hughley Rips Fox News on ‘Kelly File': ‘I’m Insulted by the Things I Hear on This Network’ (Video)

14 July 2016 7:49 AM, PDT | The Wrap | See recent The Wrap news »

D.L. Hughley appeared on Megyn Kelly’s Fox News show Wednesday night to discuss police brutality and the two didn’t exactly see eye to eye, eventually leading the comedian to openly mock the network in front of his visibly annoyed host. Hughley started off the segment by saying that he didn’t know Mark Fuhrman, who is now a Fox News contributor but gained fame being portrayed as a racist cop in O.J. Simpson trial, was going to be on the show before him. “I think that cops have a different perspective than us and I think it was interesting to hear Mark. »

Bill Maher Pushes Limits By Stretching ‘Real Time’ To Political Conventions

13 July 2016 9:46 AM, PDT | Variety - TV News | See recent Variety - TV News news »

Bill Maher grew up with news headlines ringing in his ears. His father was in radio news, and the events of the day made for natural conversation in his house. “I was born into a family of people who talked about the news,” he said. Other talk-show hosts “are not looking to talk about Brexit and its implications, but it’s second nature to me.”

Maher will have a lot to chat about over the next few weeks. He will keep doing his hour-long “Real Time” show on Friday nights on HBO in the weeks ahead, but as the Republican and Democratic conventions break out and occupy the national interest, Maher and his team will do the same, offering live half-hour shows that examine the Republican event on July 20 and 21 and the Democratic confab on July 27 and 28. That means news aficionados can opt for Maher and his often-lacerating analysis of the political landscape (this is a host »

How Roy Wood Jr. Became the Latest 'Daily Show' Breakout Star

18 April 2016 9:40 AM, PDT | Rollingstone.com | See recent Rolling Stone news »

"Roy, what can you tell us about these new developments?"

"I can tell you I don't give a shit."

From his first appearance on-screen in September 2015, new Daily Show correspondent Roy Wood Jr. came across like a seasoned smartass who had been doing the job for years. Clad in a gray suit and sporting a cockeyed, little smirk, the 37-year-old stand-up comic argued the potential colonization of Mars meant nothing to a black man in America.

Heartbeat Season 1 Review

17 March 2016 7:18 PM, PDT | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

Three episodes were provided prior to broadcast.

It’s easy to see why NBC made Heartbeat, the network’s newest stab at the hyper-tense world of surgeries and sexual workplace politics – a world which it made popular with ER and subsequently lost ground to with ABC’s similarly unending Grey’s Anatomy. Heartbeat, like those shows, mixes an over-the-top medical emergency each week into the personal drama of its diverse cast. It’s a formula that the network has proved can work for a few seasons, even when the show surrounding it can be middling at best, like The Night Shift.

With Heartbeat, the stories are now (somewhat) real, thanks to the show’s source material, “Heart Matters: A Memoir of a Female Heart Surgeon” by Dr. Kathy Magliato. The intrigue of that is quickly negated though by the network TV need to shock and drop bombs every five minutes »
