Default Why can't rightwing comics break into US late-night TV?

They're partisan programs now, with a partisan audience, and most of the humor is partisan. Partisan humor coming from the other side won't be well-received.

The people that run the networks, as well as movies and other forms of entertainment are liberal. And although they supposedly preach tolerance, they won't tolerate anyone that disagrees with them politically. Ironic, isn't it?

I think there should be, at best, a 50/50 left-right balance on those shows.

Some of them are rightwing. My dad personally knows a famous comedian (he grew up with him) who supported Trump.

Yep and Kelsey Grammer, though is he a comedian? I don't want to say the name of the comedian my dad knows but his family is very conservative. They're out there, they just might keep keep quiet.

Correction: they are limousine liberal. They still are capitalists who want low taxes and want to make a buttload of money, while they look down upon poor people they pretend to care about.
