The Late Night talk show hosts, who survived on Trump for their jokes and punches, are witnessing a decline in their ratings.
The average audience of Steven Colbert’s Late show is down by 16%, Jimmy Fallon’s Tonight Show by 21% and Jimmy Kimmel Live! by 9%.
Season to date, Colbert is averaging 2.915 million total viewers (down 16%) and 425,000 viewers (-20%) in the key demo. Jimmy Fallon’s “Tonight Show” is averaging 1.533 million total viewers (down 21%) and 343,000 viewers (-28%) in the key demo. “Jimmy Kimmel Live!” has brought in 1.800 million total viewers (down 9%) and 344,000 viewers (-21%) in the demo.
In an interesting twist of events, conservative Greg Gutfield’s Fox News show Gutfeld! has climbed to third place above Jimmy Kimmel.
