Since the presidential election and inauguration of Donald Trump, Jimmy Kimmel’s and Stephen Colbert’s viewership has increased while Jimmy Fallon’s has began to drop. It’s thought that because of Kimmel’s and Colbert’s bluntness and criticization of Trump, for instance when Colbert had Jon Stewart on his show.

Trump had tweeted about how late night talk show hosts would make fun of him, so they needed equal positives in what they said. Late night host Stephen Colbert had brought on his friend Jon Stewart to balance out the negatives. Colbert proceeded to rant on his feelings of “D-bag” Trump, and Stewart would struggle to find a positive to say about the president. They have gained attention and viewers because people side with them, while still making it fun.

Since February, Colbert has made President Trump a nightly target of his, and has had a rise in viewers ever since. Kimmel hasn’t been far behind, as he has also been critical not only of Trump, but the government in America.

    In contrast, Jimmy Fallon has remained balanced. He is yet to state his side blatantly and clearly, and because of that people are going to watch their late night show with someone they have something in common with- Jimmy Kimmel and Stephen Colbert.

    Although Fallon has arguably a more entertaining show because of his skits, musical performances, and plethora of likeable guests, people are leaving his show because of his lack of relatability in political views. Before his show’s drop in views, Fallon reigned with his Lip sync battles, and literally hundreds of various games/activities involving audience members, celebrity guests, or video messaging people all over the world. A lot of people find refuge in such a talk show host that they can laugh with while still agreeing with their criticizations resulting in a change of their nightlife.
