Trump Fatigue is Why I Think Jimmy Fallon Comes Out on Top in Late Night Show Wars

In a recent article I read today in Hollywood reporter, the focus was on something late night shows are calling “Trump Fatigue.”  In a sense late night shows are overwhelmed with just how much they not only have to cover but how quickly more news hits the airwaves.

“I don’t think there was any way to prepare for this,” says Seth Meyers as hosts and writers struggle with the president’s 24/7 news cycle. “I never imagined it would be like this,” laments Chris Licht, executive producer of CBS’ The Late Show. “My training on CBS This Morning has helped, but I thought my days of urgently changing content were over.”

And it’s for this reason that I think that Jimmy Fallon’s The Tonight Show comes out on top against The Late Show.  When it comes to late night TV, all everyone’s been talking about is how Colbert has topped Fallon in viewership.  That’s all well and good but what do you do when the Trump well dries up?  Not that this will happen anytime soon but I think after Comey’s testimony today even I (and probably many others) are getting “Trump fatigue.”  At this point I’d rather just watch a good movie and get my mind off of all this stuff.

We know how crazy it is.  It’s there.  There’s not much we can do about it, and we hate it.  There’s only so many reminders out there that we can get from the pleathora of late night hosts.  Frankly I’m tired of it and I’m sure they are too.  Fallon will rise to the top because his show is the most original and he’s stuck to his guns in not being too politically focused.

Meh, that’s my take on it anyway.
