Will Larry Wilmore Take Over Daily Show ?

Nightly Show host reveals if he is up for Jon Stewart's old post.

Published February 12, 2015

Last night on the Nightly Show, Larry Wilmore tackled a story that has the whole nation talking: the departure of Jon Stewart from the Daily Show. As speculation runs rampant about who will replace the most beloved anchor in fake news, many eyes are turning toward Wilmore. 

But the Nightly Show host isn't looking to move to an earlier time slot, he assures us. After a viewer asked if Wilmore made Stewart "move out" and a staffer asked if he "wants to be the host of the Daily Show," he decided to #KeepIt100 and address the rumors directly. "No, because I love the Nightly Show," he said earnestly.

Wilmore also looked into some less urgent issues, like obesity, same-sex marriage and anti-vaxxers, during the panel segment of his show, which included black-ish star Anthony Anderson as a guest.

Check out Wilmore directly addressing the Daily Show rumors below.
