(Yibada) – Larry Wilmore is all set to make his debut on late night TV taking over from Stephen Colbert, according to City Weekly. In view of his race, there was also speculation that the show would be renamed as “The Minority Report”. However, Fox plans to produce a TV series based on the 2002 show by the same name and will be called “Screw it, just call it The Nightly Show.”

According to trade pundits, one has seen a better diversity before during the late-night time slot with the likes of George Lopez and Arsenio Hall as per Atlanta Black Star. Colbert meanwhile left to take the place of David Letterman’s time slot on CBS. Wilmore’s job is not an easy one as he will have to confront race on a regular basis on “The Nightly Show.”
