Late Night TV Demographics

Different groups of people tend to watch different late night TV shows. Letterman and Leno tend to get older viewers, whereas Fallon and O'Brien tend to skew younger. The late night TV landscape seems to be constantly shifting. Even basic cable channels like Comedy Central and E! have had success with shows like The Daily Show and Chelsea Lately. Soon, Leno will step aside as Jimmy Fallon will take over the coveted Tonight Show gig, following in the footsteps of Johnny Carson, Steve Allen and Jack Paar. SNL alum Seth Myers will get the 12:35 am slot on NBC. This link looks at late night audience composition.
