Continuing to differentiate itself from “The Colbert Report,” “The Nightly Show” dedicated its entire second episode to Bill Cosby and the sexual assault allegations he’s facing. It all started with host Larry Wilmore’s opening monologue, where he made sure the audience was clear he believes Cosby is guilty.
For the nightly panel discussion, Wilmore and his guests — including comedians Keith Robinson and Kathleen Madigan — discussed the public’s opinion of Cosby in the wake of the wave of allegations and whether or not some of his accusers are lying.
When it came time to “Keep It 100” — a segment where Wilmore asks his guests questions he expects them to answer 100 percent truthfully — it was he who got the most interesting question of the night. Would he welcome Cosby as a panelist on the show? “Hell yes, I would like to have him! I’ve got a lot of keeping it real questions.”
