Center for Media and Public Affairs did a study on late-night political jokes.
LAT’s Top of the Ticket Reports:
The study covered all jokes between Jan. 1 and July 31 in late-night monologues by Jay Leno, Conan O’Brien, David Letterman, Jon Stewart and Stephen Colbert. Apparently, Jimmy Kimmel was not deemed funny enough to be included, which should give his writers some ammo for their show.
Not funny? Hmf. Kimmel’s show is like a big budget public access show. It has its moments. Whatever. The ‘study’ didn’t include Craig Ferguson or Bill Maher. Which makes it not really a study of late night political humor. It makes it a study of Leno.
