Just 12 weeks before the Presidential election comes word that Comedy Central has canceled “The Nightly Show with Larry Wilmore due to the usual reason: low ratings. Debuting on Jan. 29, 2015, Wilmore’s late night talker replaced “The Colbert Report” when Colbert moved to CBS to take over “The Late Show.” Wilmore, of course, had long been a strong presence on “The Daily Show with John Stewart.” The final telecast of “The Nightly Show with Larry Wilmore” will air this Thursday.

Chris Hardwick’s “@midnight” will inherit the Monday to Thursday 11:30 p.m. ET half-hour until further notice.
