In a TV news landscape where it's impossible to know whom to trust, one man rises above the partisan hackery of the mainstream media to bring you the truth that matters: his. From the mind of Jordan Klepper, this is The Opposition.

Satirical newscaster Stephen Colbert provides humorous commentary on the big issues going on in the United States and the rest of the world, with his larger-than-life ego and overly-patriotic spirit along with him every step of the way.
Was originally called "The Minority Report with Larry Wilmore". The title was changed in preproduction after FOX threatened legal action due to their sci-fi cop show Minority Report (2015) also being in development. See more »
Larry Wilmore is great but he will need to broaden his demographic to maintain interest
I've been a loyal viewer of The Daily Show for many years and have really enjoyed all of Jon's correspondents, Larry Wilmore included. But he has big shoes to fill in replacing Colbert.
Colbert always complimented Jon well in that he could make light of many ridiculous topics, especially enjoyable after Daily Show episodes which tend to highlight injustice, partisan politics and other frustrating aspects of our nation. Important topics to discuss, but not necessarily to go to sleep on. Colbert would often lighten the mood by entertaining many topics creatively.
Larry, on the other hand, seems to only focus on the black struggle from his perspective as well as those of his black panel guests (and a couple of token white guests who appear as outsiders with little to contribute). The topic of racial divide is a heated one and not one I'm excited to go to sleep on every night.
For me to continue watching the show I'll need to see some topic diversity.
More monologue, less panel - What's with the inverted map??
UPDATE: After watching the show for awhile now I can say that topic diversity didn't help. The show is boring, plain & simple. I've officially stopped watching it. Wilmore is not great on his own, he has little in his comedy toolbox.
