Jimmy Fallon Being Pressured To Get More Political To Compete With Stephen Colbert
After 5 straight weeks of losses in the ratings to Colbert?
We can understand why!!
According to reports, execs behind 'The Tonight Show' are said to be pressuring Jimmy Fallon to get more political in order to compete with 'The Late Show' host Stephen Colbert.
Colbert and 'The Late Show' have seen a raise in viewers ever since President Trump' inauguration, and while Fallon may still be beating Colbert in the 18-49 demographic, sources are saying the losses are bothering him.
Jimmy has brought in new sketches to the show, attempting to go off on Trump and the administration, but many are calling back to Fallon playing with Trump's hair that really hurt him.
Colbert (and late night host Seth Meyers) have never hidden their disdain for the current President, while Fallon's jokes are falling flat.
Time will tell where Fallon takes 'The Tonight Show', but something's gotta give.
