Title: “Absence Goes Unnoticed: Declining Impact of Left-Wing Late-Night Hosts”

Popular late-night hosts such as Stephen Colbert and Jimmy Kimmel have been absent from our screens since May, but surprisingly, their extended break has gone largely unnoticed. Due to the ongoing strikes by writers and actors, shows like “The Late Show,” “The Tonight Show,” and “Jimmy Kimmel Live” have been airing reruns, which has seemingly diminished their impact and influence.

According to political satirist Tim Young, the hosts’ attempts to create humorous news-focused monologues, often targeting Trump, became repetitive and uninteresting to the public. As a result, these late-night shows received very little coverage from entertainment news outlets, further contributing to their decline.

Over the years, ratings have steadily dropped for hosts like Colbert, Fallon, Kimmel, and Meyers. In contrast, Greg Gutfeld on Fox News has managed to attract around two million viewers, surpassing the big names of late-night television.

The shows’ divisive nature and exclusive focus have played a role in their declining popularity. For average Americans outside of elite circles, the absence of these shows went unnoticed, and even the reruns failed to generate significant viewership.

While these late-night programs have benefited from pay TV arrangements, the future might not be as promising. Their reliance on affirmative action within the industry could face challenges, and ad revenue alone might not be enough to sustain their current status. In contrast, classic shows like Johnny Carson’s continue to thrive on their merit, even on streaming platforms like Pluto.
