Which Late Night Host Needs to Quit?
Leno made headlines last month for losing his typical lead over David Letterman. He's now back on top, but it could be a bad sign.
O'Brien's new TBS show, "Conan," beat Jay Leno on its debut Monday night, but two nights later, it was down over a million viewers -- and critics were tiring of the NBC jokes.
He briefly eclipsed Leno last month, but now Letterman is back to the No. 2 spot in the total viewers category. Who likes him? Old people (meaning 25- to 54-year-olds). That's never a good sign.
Ferguson's "Late Late Show with Craig Ferguson" on CBS is roughly tied with "Late Night with Jimmy Fallon" on NBC. If we're awake at 12:35 a.m., we're watching Fallon.
"Late Night with Jimmy Fallon" is neck-and-neck with the "Late Late Show with Craig Ferguson." But Fallon made such a good Emmys host, we think it might be time for him to move on to bigger and better things.
Can you believe "Jimmy Kimmel Live!" has been on ABC since 2003? He's more or less tied with Fallon and Ferguson in the ratings, though we kind of think of him as Sarah Silverman's ex.
Yep, people are still tuning in at 1:35 a.m. to watch "Last Call With Carson Daly" on NBC. In August, the show was renewed for its TENTH season. But to us, he'll always be the host of "TRL."
Conan O'Brien made headlines for attracting a whopping 4.1 million viewers to the opening night of his new TBS show, "Conan," on Monday -- then quickly lost about a third of his audience. Sure, he beat Jay Leno's "Tonight Show" -- for one night.
But Leno has also been slipping. Last month, he briefly lost his normally healthy lead over David Letterman's "Late Show." Jimmy Kimmel, Craig Ferguson and Jimmy Fallon are roughly tied -- and does anyone really stay up until 1:35 a.m. to watch Carson Daly?
Meanwhile, last month, Jon Stewart's "Daily Show" was the No. 1 late-night talk show among adults ages 18-49. This makes the “Daily Show” the first show that wasn’t “The Tonight Show” or “The Late Show with David Letterman” to do so since at least 2000, according to Comedy Central.
Considering the popularity of the much-hipper Stewart and Stephen Colbert -- who managed to draw over 200,000 people to a rally that wasn't really about anything -- click through our slideshow and let us know: Which late-night host needs to quit his day job?
