Who is the worst late night reasonable man

Uppercut

The question makes me realise how deeply I hate late night talk show hosts. I can’t pick one. I hate them all so so much, far beyond all reason, even the ones that don’t fit the ‘reasonable man’ slur.

I dont mind any of them particularly, I doubt if I watched tv id watch any regularly besides Graham Norton. Just too much tv in a week and the nature of it makes it fairly repetitive.

Regardless what people say here, they're all pretty talented and funny. The format is the real killer.

They suck for different reasons. Meyers - delivery. Fallon - histrionics. Colbert - insufferable. Noah - content.

Never watched Corden. Coco is good.

Colbert worst overall. Noah a close second. Meyers third.

John Oliver, just the smugness and the fact that people seem to feel they are an expert on an issue they had no clue about previously after watching one of his videos boils my piss.

Oliver is terribly terribly unfunny, which is sad as his stuff for the Bugle used to be pretty good.

Colbert doesn't even deserve to be in the 'reasonable-man' race. Just a fuming, partisan-rant merchant.

I probably like Noah the best of the ones I've watched. He's the most likable, and imo the least self-righteous (though it's all different shades of self-righteousness with these guys).

He probably doesn't quite fit into the category, but for all his faults (and there are many) I prefer the preening, unvarnished, IDGAF doucheyness of Bill Maher to the lot of them.

I actually miss Jon Stewart tbh.

Conan O'Brien is the only likable one. Fallon is kind of harmless. The others produce genuinely divisive, hate-filled content.

I like Oliver and Maher. Disagree with them sometimes (especially the latter), but it's always a fun watch.

I am not a fan of Kimmel.

I liked him in Gavin & Stacey
I'm led to believe that's a good show but haven't watched it. It's other stuff like A League of their Own (a sports quiz show with people like Flintoff on the panels) which causes him to irritate me.

Good thread.

Most of these hosts have become cringeworthy, predictable and utterly one-dimensional in the last couple of years.

Let’s be honest, Trump does provide good cannon fodder for comedians, but when it becomes 95% of all their material, it’s gets tiring fast.

Agree with most that Colbert is the worst of them. Apparently his ratings were tanking before Trump came along in 2015.

Jimmy Kimmel’s incidents of crying and his constant virtue signalling has made his show more about politics than a general talk show.

Noah is similar to Kimmel but not quite as bad. But he like Oliver project too much smugness.

Seth Myers meanwhile just isn’t funny at all.

Whereas Fallon, even though I’m not a fan at least tries to deviate from the boring old bipartisan political beatup all the time.

I read Jay Leno recently made a point about the predictable one-dimensional nature of the late show hosts today.

Yeah they were trying to have Colbert host the late show without much political comedy. The massive boost to his ratings when they switched to it definitely shows he appeals to an audience. The weird thing is that his average viewership is like 66+ in age. You'd think that he'd annoy old people more than anyone.

Jay Leno easily the worst mentioned so far, pretty much responsible for all the really grating ticks of talk show hosts.
