If you had any hopes of your late night comedy coming to you without a side of political agenda, please put them to death now. Not only are the networks allowing those who are hired for their wit and cynicism to shove a party line down our throats, they’re apparently also requiring it.
Of course in TV everything is all about ratings, but one would think that SOMETHING was about integrity and good clean fun, but apparently not. NBC is now pushing their late night host, Jimmy Fallon, to step outside of his comfort zone and get more anti-Trump.
Via Page Six:
“The Tonight Show” host Jimmy Fallon watched his show’s ratings take a hit yet again on Tuesday as competitor “The Late Show With Stephen Colbert” won its fifth straight week in overall viewers — and sources say Fallon’s being forced to change his strategy to win back eyeballs.
“[Fallon] is feeling the pressure. I mean, Stephen Colbert is now beating him in a big way and he has to change his format to keep up because he’s losing viewers,” said a source, adding that Fallon’s getting more political. “They had to figure out a way to get Trump [into his routine] because he’s too weak on Trump, and viewers are going elsewhere. [He’s been] uncomfortable talking about politics, and that’s not what the people want.”
A different source added that Fallon “is being pushed to be more political. When he was on ‘SNL’ he could be vicious on the ‘Weekend Update’ desk.”
So what exactly does NBC want Fallon to imitate? Apparently, they want him to make the kind of slurs against the President that Colbert does. In case you missed is
In case you missed his recent offensive onslaught against the POTUS, here it is again:
Yeah, that seems like the kind of thing that will unite the nation and make for a better America. Maybe the problem is that the people watching the late night shows aren’t the ones getting up early to go to work in the morning. That might put their demographic more in the Democrat’s camp. If that’s the case, then yes, Trump bashing would be the only way to win them over.
Good luck guys, I’ll continue to not watch any of this, and hope it will go the way of all the rest of the liberal propaganda; obviously biased and ultimately obsolete.
