Comedy Central (comedycentral) President Michele Ganeless reveals some details about the network’s next big late-night bet.
The Minority Report setup will be similar to The Daily Show and Colbert Report, but with a twist: For parts of the show Larry Wilmore will be joined by a panel of co-hosts, presumably along the lines of The View or Real Time With Bill Maher. … The idea is for the group to reflect a range of points of view. “It’s not being done right now in late night—a panel of diverse voices, a panel of underrepresented voices,” says Comedy Central president Michele Ganeless. “This is the African American point of view, the female point of view, the Latino point of view, on all issues of the day. It’s holistic—it’s not just about looking at a black point of view and black issues. It’s giving these underrepresented voices an opportunity to be heard on all issues. That array of voices will be a big part of the show.”
