Larry Wilmore Announces New Deal with ABC

It has been three months since The Nightly Show was canceled and now Wilmore has something new in the works.

In a late night TV line up of the same type of show host, Wilmore was the only thing different in late night talk shows. Fans can rejoice now that Wilmore is going to join ABC.

Additionally, Wilmore will work alongside studio executives to track down emerging talent. Read More
