    Comedy Central's "The Nightly Show with Larry Wilmore" is coming to an end.

    The late-night humor and talk show, which premiered in January 2015, will conclude its run Thursday, the network announced Monday.

    The program, which filled the slot vacated by Stephen Colbert when he jumped to CBS, sought to explore current events and larger life issues as presided over by Wilmore, who previously served as "senior black correspondent" on "The Daily Show."

    But audience acceptance of "The Nightly Show" never approached its "Daily Show" lead-in, neither during the regime of Jon Stewart nor his successor, Trevor Noah, who took over last September.
