Creative commentary plus crafty composition

In recognition of how much the after midnight TV landscape has transformed over the years

  • Fewer reruns of black-and-white movies or old network TV shows
  • Entertainment experience in depth not required of hosts
  • Less exposure to bizarre evangelical fund-raising
  • No talk shows trying to last ninety minutes, or giving more than four minutes to musical performances
  • Increased competition from pretty entertainment faces spouting vacuous subject matter
  • More time devoted to commercials and paid-for promotional pitches
  • Game show formats predicated on an under age 30 audience focused on low-brow current events
  • Conceptually stupefying reality show repeats, facing less competition for viewers
  • The heightened dress code of talk show hosts acting as greater foil to on-camera antics with guests
  • No worries about accessing updates of overnight weather
