Political humor is fine and can be very funny, but when it’s completely one sided it gets old fast. All of the late night TV hosts are far left and attack Trump all the time. People are tired of it and ratings are going down.
The Washington Examiner reports:
The anti-Trump late-night comedy lineup keeps plummeting
Stephen Colbert joked about the president’s “feeble, fucking anemic firefly of a soul.” Seth Meyers teased that the vice president was somehow “already sunburned” before his visit to devastated Puerto Rico. And Jimmy Kimmel, that comedian turned public conscience, lectured all week long about everything from healthcare to mental health to gun control.
But chances are good you didn’t watch any of it because viewership isn’t doing so well. Of course, they’re still the kings of late-night comedy. Nobody has cast out that lineup because nobody has really showed up to watch.
While America was laughing at Twitter and watching YouTube videos, late night was slipping. Writing in the Transom, Ben Domenech of The Federalist points out that the late-night viewership of ABC, CBS, plus NBC this week barely broke 8 million viewers. Not long ago retired NBC funnyman Jay Leno was bringing in 6 million viewers all on his own.
What do they expect to happen? They routinely insult half of the country.
