Larry Wilmore's first 'Nightly Show' promo is so very nightly

Posted on



Larry Wilmore is looking to bring the night back to late night—even if the rest of his staff actually has to get their work done.

In the new promo for The Nightly Show, Wilmore promises his new show will give “a voice to the voices you never get to hear on late-night TV.” And that apparently translates into bathing all of those voices in the light of a glittering disco ball.

The video also offers a peek at Wilmore’s set and desk, which look to still be under construction while the host lets loose.

The Nightly Show will premiere on Comedy Central on Jan. 19 at 11:30 p.m. EST after The Daily Show. For more, read EW‘s interview with Jon Stewart about what viewers can expect from Wilmore’s new show.
