Larry Wilmore Will Take Over For Stephen Colbert

The Daily Show's "senior black correspondent" Larry Wilmore will take over Stephen Colbert's 11:30 p.m. Comedy Central time slot after he leaves to become the new host of CBS' The Late Show in December. The Minority Report will premiere January 2015. He's been a part of The Daily Show's roster since 2006.

It's an especially good week for Wilmore, who beyond landing the post-Jon Stewart gig, also had his pilot, Black-ish (starring Anthony Anderson) picked up to series by ABC. He'll stay on as showrunner for Black-ish to get things started before switching over to Comedy Central full-time.
