No one has watched Trevor Noah – and no one will watch his not-so-funny liberal alternative either

No one has watched Trevor Noah - and no one will watch his not-so-funny liberal alternative either

with Trevor Noah announces he is leaving “The Daily Show” The question on everyone’s mind is: Which unfamiliar liberal “comedian” that few will watch will take his place?

Late-night television “comedy” has become entirely political, and politics, of course, comes from only one direction: the left.

It has had a real impact on ratings. as such The Post reported last weekAt its peak, in 2013, with [Jon] Stewart at the helm of the show, The Daily Show averaged 2.5 million viewers each night. During Noah’s time, it initially averaged a little north of 800,000 nightly viewers – but has since lost a significant portion of its audience and fell below The 400,000 mark sometimes.”

Stewart was also openly on the left, but he successfully treated the show as a comedic education for low-information voters. This is not a dig. In 2004, a Pew Research Center survey found 21% of adults under the age of 30 regularly receive news from the presidential campaign from television comedies such as “The Daily Show” and “Saturday Night Live.”

With the election of Donald Trump and his eager discussion by celebrities at award shows, influencers on TikTok and random strangers on the subway, it has become a lot less important for a single TV show to give kids the news.

By October 2020, The New York Times blamed Trump Because of the “destroying political comedy”. The piece admitted, “Maybe it’s glut; in any form of humor, from sitcoms to pub notes, overproduction causes problems.” Yes, boring, dull, indifferent comedians were on late-night TV, still obsessed with Donald Trump, and that really ruined their programming.

Last Wednesday, to pick a random day, Jimmy Kimmel, who has been talk of fame on Twitter after being largely unfunny in the “Monday Night Football” segment, said he hoped Trump’s ranking on the Forbes richest list would be his guest number as well. .

Jimmy Fallon, who made a mistake in 2016 Treating Trump as a regular guest by trimming his hair, In a move for which he tearfully apologized, he joked that perhaps Trump should help out in Ukraine because he had a lot of relationships with foreigners.

Stephen Colbert called Trump a “naughty parrot” in a joke that you don’t really need to hear because, like all Colbert’s attempts at humor, it’s not funny.

When Trump was president for banter, he was fine, but it’s fall 2022. Trump hasn’t been president for nearly two years, and that’s the best these ideological staffers have gotten.

It’s not hard to see that these comedians are in these slots less because of their comedic, important, and more because of their internal politics. Kimmel and Colbert have a rather outspoken anger towards anyone who isn’t on the left with them. And while Fallon is certainly friendlier rather than hateful toward half the country, he seems to live in fear of another heap of treating a political opponent like a human. He never makes that mistake again.

And while the media run stories of how sad the lone non-white host passed away late at night, Noah never strayed from this boring liberal orthodoxy.

That’s why in part Fox News’ Late Night Greg Gutfeld is a huge hit. As the only illiberal late-night comedy show, “Gutfeld!” It has a broader spontaneous appeal than Jimmy Jimmy Stephens shows itself on network television. Viewers averaged 2.19 million in August.

Gutfeld really happens to be funny, and his hosts Kat Timpf and Tyrus are hilarious too. They don’t make lame jokes about Trump or the man who he is President now. As unpredictable as the rest of the late-night line-up.

It’s also the reason Joe Rogan continues to crush the podcast world. Comedian Rogan is an extroverted liberal. But he doesn’t make the same stupid jokes as Donald Trump. Nor are its guests uniformly left-wingers like those who show late at night. It turns out that diversity matters.

There is something going on here, but the TV producers don’t seem to want to know. The producers of these shows have a point, and they want to push that point of view, even when it means half the country is shut down and there aren’t any laughs at all.

Nobody waits for late-night shows to be balanced or smart. But can they be funny at least sometimes?
