A black woman hosting a show aimed at a general audience

I have become a huge fan of The Soup. It's all the fun of terrible TV combined into a weekly digest, so you don't have to watch it. Its current host, Joel McHale, does a great job and I always end up laughing out loud when I watch the show. The show was previously called Talk Soup, and was hosted by Aisha Tyler, who Bust is hosting for a night of comedy.

When was the last time you saw a television show hosted by a woman of color that was aimed at an audience that was not primarily women? Maybe when Aisha Tyler hosted Talk Soup.
