This study examines the role that Late-Night Television shows (LNTV) play in the United States. The study used qualitative content analyses to generate themes emerging from 87 respondents from an online survey conducted with 23 LNTV show hosts in the United States. The findings suggest three main things: LNTVS hosts have a partisan affiliation that is contagiously infused into their audience; that LNTV hosts have less freedom to create their own content, therefore, providing less ethical consideration for their audience; and that LNTV shows rank politics as providing most newsworthy content than any other event.
