Peacock’s new late-night shows from comedians Larry Wilmore and Amber Ruffin now have titles, premiere dates, and trailers.
Starting this Friday, Larry will be stepping in-front of the camera to host Wilmore. On Monday, NBC’s new streaming platform released the trailer for the highly-anticipated show. The video features the comedian having a conversation with himself as he ponders what to call the series and explains what viewers can expect.
He alternates between names like “Oh, So You’re Finally Ready To Talk About Race with Larry Wilmore” and “I’ll Stop Talking When It Stops Happening with Larry Wilmore.” He then settles on “I’m Too Old For This S–t,” which his alter ego agrees with. However, as the narrator shared, the show ended up going with the much simpler name Wilmore.

Peacock first announced the new series in early August. The streamer has ordered 11 episodes of Wilmore, which will debut on Friday, Sept. 18.
Wilmore previously hosted The Nightly Show on Comedy Central, before it ended in 2018. The new weekly series will be executive produced by Jo Miller, Tony Hernandez, Brooke Posch, David Miner and Michael Rotenberg and Wilmore, who has an overall production deal with Universal Television, a division of Universal Studio Group.
Comedian Amber Ruffin’s late-night show on Peacock will launch a week later, on Sept. 25.
The Amber Ruffin Show will highlight the Late Night With Seth Meyers writer and performer’s smart and silly take on the week’s news, Peacock says. Ruffin, Jenny Hagel, Seth Meyers, and Mike Shoemaker serve as executive producers. The series is produced by Universal Television and Sethmaker Shoemeyers Productions
