I've only watched clips of Samantha Bee's show, but it's been observed that the two best comedy-news hosts on American tv now are non-American—a Limey and a Canuck.

Yeah I just saw this very disappointed
Just saw notice of the cancellation. I quit watching several months ago (the same time I quit the Daily Show; John Oliver is the only one of those types of shows I watch now). I really liked Larry, but as soon as he brought the other cast members to the panel, the episode just died. They were neither funny nor thought provoking, and I couldn't be bother to tune in just for ten minutes.
wife and I love every cast member. the round table was hit and miss, but the scripted stuff was always great.

If LW has a weakness (apart from hiring supporting players), it's that he doesn't do outrage comedy. He's a bit more appalled or jeering. And that's fine as a comedic stance, something more distanced, but it don't think it plays as well these days.

Now that Obama's presidency is coming to a close, and racism has finally been ended in America, we don't need to have to black people on television anymore.

Yeah, nothing a white audience likes better than an outraged black guy yelling at them on TV

I used to say, and not without some cause, that if I were black, I'd probably be more or less exactly like Nat X.

My buddy and I SWEAR that we saw her at 3am at a grocery store in Charleston in 1995. But we might just have been dumb white college students.

Just to clear, Wolt would be Urkel, Hooks would be Drake, and Jenny would be Sammy Davis jr.
