After 5 Months Of Crude Trump Jokes, Stephen Colbert Gets TERRIBLE News

Stephen Colbert has made it clear over the last many years that he isn’t funny.

Sure, he might be clever. He might be rude. He might say provocative things.

But, he’s really lacking in the originality department.

And let’s not forget that bashing Trump is the laziest comedy there is. It’s low hanging fruit to bash the president no matter who it is. You aren’t taking any risks there. The real risk would be calling out the Democrats or the news media for making up stories.

Here’s what qualifies as “edgy” on Colbert’s show.

Yikes.

Jimmy Fallon is by no means a conservative but he at least seems to understand that it’s never a good look to alienate your audience. He seems to give it to both sides more than the other comics and a lot of people appreciate that.

The recent batch of ratings came out and guess what? Looks like Colbert’s “cock holster” act might be wearing thin.

From Hollywood Reporter:

The NBC show narrowly outperforms its CBS competition among total viewers, as the latter excludes Thursday and Friday repeats from the Nielsen race.

With an abbreviated average, on account of CBS excluding Thursday and Friday repeats, NBC’s Tonight averaged a slim 34,000 viewers more than CBS’ Late Show for the week. That’s the first time since the week of Jan. 30 — read: the Trump inauguration — that NBC has posted such an advantage. Colbert has won the total viewer race for the five months since, though by varying margins.

It’s a slim victory and it’s only one set of data.

However, it speaks to the idea that maybe audiences are looking for something a little more down the middle in this hostile political climate. This is the first time that Jimmy has beaten Colbert since Trump became president. That’s worth noting.

This time around, the good guy prevailed over the crass one.

We will keep you updated.

    Well written article. Hope Colbert goes down
    You can’t win your happiness on someone else’s misery. I hope he gets his just desserts.

      This man is a pure disgrace and he should not be allowed to say things like that on a television show, especially when it is our president that he is insulting this way! The liberals are out of hand in this country, especially these television personalities and I hope Steven Colbert gets fixed and loses his job, but we know that won’t happen because he is g liberal with a sewer mouth and liberals can say and do whatever they want to, unlike a conservative and a Christian, of course we don’t stoop to their level, the level that runs beneath the streets! Colbert,you are a petty little man and what you say does not mean squat and guess what,you better get use to our president because Mr. Trump is going nowhere till his 8 years are up and he has done what God wants him to do, YES GOD!

    Colbert’ a no-talent pig while his female counterpart Samantha Bee is a b-tch. I mute the tv when their commercials come on because I don’t want to hear their trash talking Liberal bullshit spew off. I long for good old late night tv of Carson, Leno and Letterman when the goal of those programs was to entertain the audience. The crap these 2 spew is terrible and demeaning for our country.

    It appears as though Colbert is using his show as an extreme form of bullying, as there is little attempt at entertainment. I (along with many others) quit watching months ago. Hopefully the network will find someone to take over the show that knows the meaning of entertainment.
