"As many of you probably heard, this is our final week of The Nightly Show," he began. "I just want to Thank Comedy Central for this rare opportunity, and it really is a rare opportunity. Thank you so much ... and also the staff of the show. We have an amazing staff for giving it their all these months."

A version of this story originally appeared on EW.com.
It's time to say goodnight to The Nightly Show with Larry Wilmore: Comedy Central has canceled the series just over a year and a half after its Jan. 19, 2015 debut, the network confirmed to Entertainment Weekly on Monday. The final episode will air Thursday, and @Midnight will then take over the 11:30 p.m. time slot.
"We thank Larry and The Nightly Show staff for their tireless efforts across the past two years and the conversations the show generated by addressing social issues of great importance to the country, always challenging people's attitudes, perceptions, and bias," Comedy Central said in a statement. Comedy Central president Kent Alterman alluded to the show's ratings on Monday, telling the New York Times the show "hasn't resonated."
"Even though we've given it a year and a half, we've been hoping against hope that it would start to click with our audience, but it hasn't happened and we haven't seen evidence of it happening," said Alterman.
In a separate statement, Wilmore, who was previously a correspondent on The Daily Show, said he's "really grateful to Comedy Central, Jon Stewart and our fans to have had this opportunity."
"But I'm also saddened and surprised we won't be covering this crazy election or 'The Unblackening' as we've coined it," he continued. "And keeping it 100, I guess I hadn't counted on 'The Unblackening' happening to my time slot as well."
