The Nightly Show With Larry Wilmore has been cancelled, and will only air a couple more days before it’s done, just before the final months of this incredibly wacky election season. Which means we no longer get to hear Wilmore’s fresh, spunky take on how big of an ass Trump is sure to make himself in the coming debates.

On Monday night, the day of the axing, Wilmore opened by asking the crowd: “So, how was your day?” He continued to explain, “On the plus side, our show going off the air has to only mean one thing: Racism is solved. We did it!”

While we’re sad to see Wilmore go, it’s not exactly a shocker, as Vulture points out. The witty political comedy hour was simply not drawing in enough of an audience for Comedy Central to justify sustaining it. That’s a shame, because it deserved a bigger audience.

Take a look at Wilmore’s Monday night monologue below.
