    I'm not really sure what to think of this yet. The show itself is really good it's just a drastic change from its predecessor. The Colbert Report left some really big shoes to fill.

    I have never really been a big fan of panel shows, but maybe this one will grow on me.

    I really did want to like this show. I watched the first 2 weeks, every night though, and I just really can't get into it. Seems too structured, and is seriously lacking in the creative ways that the Colbert Report brought. Feels like a show destined to fail after a few seasons. Comedy Central I'm sure really wants it to succeed and well probably hang on longer than they should. I just don't think that Larry Wilmore is edgy enough, or something... I don't know. Maybe it will find it's way as time goes on.

    I'm in the exact same boat. I really, really wanted to like this show, but I am having a hard time doing so. I think it has much more to do with the time constrictions than anything else. Having a panel model while only having a five to seven minute discussion due to commercial breaks is just tough. If the show were an hour long then I could definitely see it being a lot better than its current, time constricted, format.
