Here's Some Good News: Colbert Is Failing As Badly As You Figured He Would

His first night's ratings were, I guess, okay, but people are going to have a curiosity factor for that first night. (When I say people, I don't mean me and I don't mean you. I mean idiots.)

Well, now it's the second night, and that curiosity itch has been scratched.

He's losing to Fallon in his second night. One would expect him to win his first week, but no, just the first night.

How bad are his numbers? He seems to be pulling in the same 18-49 ratings as Letterman did by only his second night. Apparently younger viewers weren't all that excited to watch Colbert talk to Jeb Bush. After all the hype, Colbert is just as unappealing to younger viewers as Letterman. And he may not have even hit his floor yet. If this is how badly he's doing by his second night, it's likely that Colbert's 18-49 numbers will be worse than Letterman's.

About the only thing you can credit CBS and Colbert for is that both sides had low expectation. CBS is paying Colbert less than his old salary. It's a fraction of what Letterman was getting paid to fail just as hard as Colbert.

Eh, if he can manage to continue failing as badly as brokedown ol' Dave, I guess CBS would limp along with him, as they limped along with Letterman. If you're making some money, that's still something.

So... yeah.

All I got.

Spite is all I have left.

Open Thread.

Bonus: That feminist British lawyer ogled (and even ooogled) men online.
