Jay Leno -- The Talk Show Host of Choice for Tea Partiers

By Dustin Rowles | Trade News | November 2, 2010 | Comments ()


See! I knew there was a reason I didn't like Jay Leno, other than the fact that he's an evil, whiny, smarmy, lame hackjob of a talk-show host.

According to a poll conducted by The Hollywood Reporter, people who watch Leno are more likely to be "wealthy, Republican, red wine drinkers who like Fox News, support the Tea Party and drive American cars."

Sounds about right.

Meanwhile, Conan supporters are "independent voters who enjoy vodka drinks, watch Comedy Central and are most likely to be single atheists who own Volkswagens." And Letterman? "Democrats who watch Showtime and CNN, are more likely to be divorced, listen to classic rock and drive a Toyota." Classic rock? That's 90's music now, right? As for Jon Stewart: "Democrats who watched MSNBC and AMC, drank beer and were most likely to be married and Catholic."

Personality wise, I fit somewhere right in between Conan, Letterman, and Stewart. That's about right.

Strangely, the poll also found that most the overwhelming majority of folks blame NBC for the messiness involved in Conan's departure from the network (as opposed to Leno), while more people agree that Leno came out on top in that situation.
