“The Minority Report” with Larry Wilmore Will Now Be Titled “The Nightly Show”
(via The Hollywood Reporter)
In order to avoid “brand confusion”, Comedy Central’s replacement for The Colbert Report will no longer called The Minority Report with Larry Wilmore.
Rather, it will now be called The Nightly Show with Larry Wilmore, which is fitting in the sense that it’s following The Daily Show with Jon Stewart and preceding @midnight with Chris Hardwick,
The “brand confusion” supposedly refers to having the show be more about underdogs as opposed to just minorities. However, it also clears up any confusion it would have with Steven Spielberg’s Minority Report from 2002.
