Larry Wilmore Gets Cancelled

Comedy Central cancelled "The Larry Wilmore Show" or whatever it was called. Maybe you've heard of him. No? Well I guess that explains that. But don't worry some guy that wears a suit will provide you a more in depth explanation.
In explaining the decision, Comedy Central president Kent Alterman said Monday it came down to the show's inability to register with viewers. "Unfortunately, it hasn't connected with our audience in ways that we need it to, both in the linear channel and in terms of multiplatform outlets and with shareable content and on social platforms as well."
That last sentence says it all. What he should have said was..."Larry wasn't providing enough sound bites that people could mindlessly repeat  ad nauseam on Twitter until you want to punch a baby in the face".  Too bad Lenny your show will be missed. By someone. I guess. But hey everyone look at the bright side. If you're a mediocre comedian that can really connect with 24-40 year old dumbasses, there's a slot open for you at Comedy Central.
