I enjoyed Wilmore on The Daily Show and enjoyed his monologues; but his show as a whole was hard to watch and often went unviewed on my DVR. He clearly tried to blaze his own path but never found one that resonated with a significant audience.
The questions and assumptions made in this article are a tad absurd. His show was in better “creative shape”? On what planet? The sketches were weak and he quickly ditched his “Keeping it 100/weak tea” panels when they went nowhere night in and night out. Why wouldn’t Comedy Central put the show with half the audience as the lead-in? This question makes it seem like a cowardly move on the part of Comedy Central when it is obvious ratings still matter.
