What's new on the tube tonight:

The Nightly Show With Larry Wilmore (Comedy Central) Series Debut: You may be wondering, "Why isn't it called The Minority Report?" Originally, the Colbert Report replacement starring Daily Show "Senior Black Correspondent" Larry Wilmore was going to be titled as such, but then Fox announced that it was considering producing a TV series based on the 2002 movie of the same name, leading Comedy Central to say, "Screw it, just call it The Nightly Show," which clicks nicely with lead-in The Daily Show. At least better than the other title that was in the running, Battlefield Earth With Larry Wilmore.
