The final Nightly Show aired on Thursday. Wilmore talked to John Koblin about the show's unexpected end. Wilmore has been critical of Comedy Central's lack of promotional support. Daniel Fienberg says the Nightly Show will be missed, and Angela Bonavoglia says women in particular should be dismayed. Alison Herman points to Comedy Central's larger problems, but the channel's execs insist it's doing fine with advertisers despite its ratings struggles.
