Do-Nothing Congress Doing Nothing Watch 2016: Gun control gridlock; Mike Yard talks about the intensity gap. Oakland's police scandal and their changing chiefs. The panelists talk about a bill that ...
Was originally called "The Minority Report with Larry Wilmore". The title was changed in preproduction after FOX threatened legal action due to their sci-fi cop show Minority Report (2015) also being in development. See more »
I loved Larry Wilmore on the Daily Show, so I gave him a full week's chance on his own ... but it's not working. The problem, I think, is that Larry isn't a great solo act. On the Daily Show, as the "Senior Black Corespondent," he was bouncing off of Stewart. Maybe that's why they decided to do these panel discussions for a good majority of the show, but I've never found it interesting to watch a group of strangers (or near strangers) chat about a subject.
I don't mind that the show is focused on black issues and concerns, and in fact I was ready to find that spin refreshing. His panels are somewhat racially diverse, so I don't feel left out as a white woman ... I'm afraid I just don't think the format is working, and I'm not convinced that Larry has the right force of personality to make this show work.
