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 »

Can Viacom Really Stop Stephen Colbert From Playing "Stephen Colbert"?

28 July 2016 11:23 AM, PDT | The Hollywood Reporter | See recent The Hollywood Reporter news »

A popular Comedy Central personality leaves to become a CBS late-night show host only to hear Viacom assert entitlement to old material. No, not Stephen Colbert, who revealed on Wednesday that a lawyer from "another company" was claiming intellectual property over the character "Stephen Colbert" from The Colbert Report. We're talking about Craig Kilborn, who in 1998 resigned from The Daily Show to become host of CBS' Late Late Show. Jon Stewart's reign on The Daily Show rendered Kilborn's almost a forgotten relic, but before he left Comedy Central, Kilborn had a popular segment called "Five Questions," which was basically a light-hearted interrogation of

Looking Back at 20 Years of ‘The Daily Show’ — and Its First Rnc In Years Without Jon Stewart

20 July 2016 9:45 AM, PDT | Variety - TV News | See recent Variety - TV News news »

Though no one knew it at the time, “The Daily Show”’s August 31, 2012 broadcast in Tampa was the last time that Jon Stewart would cover the Republican National Convention. Stewart’s monologue to the audience about “the invisible Obama,” from today’s vantage point, inspires the most misty-eyed nostalgia: It’s Stewart at his clear-eyed, appealing-to-sanity best—trimming down the bluster, spin, wonky posturing, and false equivalence that mark so much political rhetoric in this country to some core essential truth.

It’s also a monologue in which he half-jokingly predicted Donald Trump’s candidacy.

That night, he said: “The world and the President that Republicans describe bears so little resemblance to the world and resemblance that I experience. And now I know why: There is a President Obama that only Republicans can see.” He’s talking about the occupant of Eastwood’s empty chair, but the quest to get at that kernel of truth is one »

Jessica Williams’ Departure Points to Bigger Problems at ‘The Daily Show’

30 June 2016 2:17 PM, PDT | Variety - TV News | See recent Variety - TV News news »

On Wednesday, longtime “The Daily Show” correspondent and fan-favorite Jessica Williams announced that she would be leaving the show to work on a scripted pilot with “Broad City” and “Difficult People” writer Naomi Ekperigin. With her, she takes one of the finest voices at “The Daily Show.” Williams was an important hire for the Comedy Central fake-news late-night comedy show: She came in after the lack of women in the writers’ room and in front of the camera caught the attention of Jezebel writer Irin Carmon. There was a brief period of time, too, where Williams was a favorite to replace Jon Stewart in the host’s chair.

Right now, the vision of that alternate universe is a rosy one. Williams takes her talent with her, and what’s left behind is a show that has been struggling ever since Stewart announced his retirement. It is not totally a surprise that “The Daily Show” was going to »

Interview: Melissa Rauch Finishes First in ‘The Bronze’

18 March 2016 7:57 AM, PDT | HollywoodChicago.com | See recent HollywoodChicago.com news »

Chicago – She’s conquered television, and now it’s time for the movies. Melissa Rauch – also known as Bernadette on “The Big Bang Theory” – has created a new, uniquely voiced character named Hope Greggory. The character is a third placed, foul-mouthed Olympic gymnast in the new film “The Bronze.”

The film has an one-of-a-kind angle. Hope Greggory goes to the 2004 Olympics out of Amherst, Ohio, with the help of her Dad Stan (Gary Cole) and Coach Pavlek (Christine Abrahamsen). After a showy injury at the Games, she holds on to take the Bronze medal, and gets seemingly lifelong celebrity in her hometown. Fast forward to 2015 – the shine is off the medal, and a new gymnast sensation in town named Maggie (Haley Lu Richardson) is threatening to take Hope’s territory. Hope agrees to coach her, but can lightning strike twice?

Melissa Rauch showcases her comedic chops in “The Bronze”

16 March 2016 11:57 AM, PDT | Hollywoodnews.com | See recent Hollywoodnews.com news »

If any of you are fans of The Big Bang Theory, then you probably also are a fan of Melissa Rauch. She has been an asset on that show for some time now as the squeaky voiced Bernadette Rostenkowski, but this weekend, Rauch shows off her skills in a whole new way with The Bronze, a comedy she co-wrote and stars in. It debuted last year the Sundance Film Festival, with its release finally coming our way on Friday. The movie should introduce her to a whole new audience, with the possibility existing that Rauch could wind up the next huge thing in big screen comedies. The Bronze is a raunchy comedy centering on former Olympic gymnastics bronze medalist Hope Ann Gregory (Rauch). Ever since then, she’s been living off of the fame that got her, residing in the small town she grew up in and essentially living in a state of arrested development. »

Hillary Kun needs a moment of zen. After 14 years, the co-executive producer is leaving Comedy Central’s “The Daily Show.” That lengthy tenure means she was there for most of Jon Stewart‘s time, and all of current host Trevor Noah’s. Kun was responsible for booking the guests and producing their corresponding guest segments. As part of the team, Kun won four Emmy Awards.
