Larry Wilmore’s show was also very, very bad outside of his monologues (which were hit or miss as they were). His so-called “contributors” seemed to take pleasure in dumbing down things as much possible while being almost offensively unfunny (see the infamous Bill Nye guest episode). Colbert is a tough act to follow, and following him with that is going to turn off a lot of people very quickly.

That 11:30 slot is just begging for Jessica Williams.
