To be honest, the women of "The Nightly Show with Larry Wilmore" are what I'll miss most. There isn't another shown on the air that will cover the "Twitter Controversy" of African-American gymnasts' hair at all, let alone with the proper amount of ridicule. And this...

(Not work safe)

Is this the start of the "UnBlackening" of Comedy Central's late night line up? Larry Wilmore didn't miss that possibility, quoted in Variety:

“I’m really grateful to Comedy Central, Jon Stewart, and our fans to have had this opportunity,” Wilmore said in a statement. “But I’m also saddened and surprised we won’t be covering this crazy election or ‘The Unblackening’ as we’ve coined it. And keeping it 100, I guess I hadn’t counted on ‘The Unblackening’ happening to my time slot as well.”

In the meantime, Comedy Central is moving "@ Midnight" to 11:30. No, really.
