The host is Larry Wilmore, known as The Daily Show's "Senior Black Coorespondent".

I was hoping for a longer Daily Show ... but I suppose another spinoff might work.

To match the pronunciation of the The Colbert Report, this should have been called The Minority Rapport.

Or "the minor rapport" to lose the syllable in minority ... but as a Larry Wilmore panel show it will be taking a different approach than the "one man show" done by Colbert. The name is not the only change.

The Colbert Report caught on and survived for ten years ... Perhaps there will be some crossover with The Minority Report to get it a good launch - but I'm not expecting 10 years. At least they will have a few months to grow an audience before Colbert returns (out of character) on CBS at 11:35pm.
