Late night television has been a classic staple of television in the United States for decades. While late night television used to have just one or two main shows, the industry has continued to expand and there are now several major programs that draw millions of viewers each night. While there are several popular shows, the winner of the ratings battle has recently been announced (http://fortune.com/2017/05/24/stephen-colbert-cbs-season-ratings/).
According to the recent ratings results, the most popular late night television show today is The Late Show with Stephen Colbert, which is on CBS. This is the first time that the show has been rated number one. Over the past few months, the show has averaged 3.19 million viewers per night. This compared to the second place show, and the reigning ratings champ, The Tonight Show, which stars Jimmy Fallon and drew 3.17 million viewers over the same period of time.
While this is the first time that The Late Show with Stephen Colbert has been rated number one, it seemed obvious that this time was coming. Stephen Colbert has had several sessions of his show go viral due to his open criticism of Donald Trump, several sessions of which ended up being directly responded to by the President.
While Colbert’s show was number one, he still is well behind Jimmy Fallon in the 18-49 category, which is often considered the most lucrative of all groups. However, this continues to show great growth for the show, which has seen a 15% increase in viewership in the last year alone.
Over the past few weeks, one of the biggest stores in late night television has been the feud going on between Donald Trump and Steven Colbert, who is the host of The Late Show. Over this time period, Trump has sent out a number of critical tweets about Colbert and his show, which came after Colbert made some critical comments about Trump, his presidency, and current political issues.
While Trump used to be very active on Twitter, he has slowed down over the past few weeks. After seeing the decline in the number of tweets, Colbert had a few suggestions as reasons why (http://www.hollywoodreporter.com/lists/late-night-lately-colberts-twitter-vention-cordens-latest-performances-mocking-trumps-trip-1007715/item/colbert-stages-a-trump-twitter-vention-late-night-lately-may-27-1007726). One of the main reasons that Colbert cited for the lack of Twitter usage is that Trump has finally left the country and could be trying to avoid data roaming charges. This poked fun at the fact that after several months, Trump has just now made his first international trip.
Colbert continued on to provide a number of other jokes and suggestions. During his show, Colbert further discussed that Trump’s use of Twitter has had an impact on many people’s lives, even Colbert’s life. Colbert stated that ever since he was brought up in a Trump Twitter rant, the ratings of Colbert’s show has gone up. This comment came at the same time that it was announced that The Late Show is now the number one show on late night television as it has just recently taken the top slot away from The Tonight Show with Jimmy Fallon.
It is impossible to talk about Southern Rock music without giving Gregg “LeNoir” Allman of the Allman Brothers Band fame a prominent mention. Allman played a central role in inventing the popular music genre known as Southern Rock that swept through the nation starting from the early 70s. Fans are mourning the passing of prolific musician, singer, and songwriter at his Savannah, Georgia home on May, 27th 2017. The renowned entertainer was 69 years of age at the time.
The Allman Brothers Band secured its place in history by creating a unique mash of country blues with an extended improvisation style more commonly found in the South Francisco music scene. This new style was eventually dubbed as “Southern Rock” and has formed the mold that numerous successive country bands would follow. Gregg Allman formed this influential band alongside his older brother, celebrated guitarist Duane Allman, in 1969.
The brothers started out playing for many bands in Nashville. However, it was not long before they took their own band, the Allman Joys, on the road. It was not until 1969 that they formed the chart-topping Allman Brothers Band. The 1971 release of their inaugural album, “Live at the Fillmore East,” propelled the frontman and band to meteoric success. Allman also found great success as a solo artist, with his albums offering a wide selection of soul, blues, and R’n’B.
Gregg Allman had a distinctly rich, gritty voice that made him one of the greatest vocalists in the blues-rock genre. Combined with the soulful sounds of his Hammond B-3 keyboard, Allman’s performances were deeply and emotionally powerful. Because of his unique talent, Allman received numerous accolades and awards for his work. These include multiple Grammys, and an induction into the Georgia Music Hall of Fame, Rolling Stone’s 100 Greatest Singers of All Time, and the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame.

“Watch What Happens Live with Andy Cohen,” Bravo’s late-night, hilarious interactive talk show has been on the road for the past week, wowing much larger audiences in Los Angeles.
The talk show host was happy to hit the road and see how the other side lives, and the audience of 500 was enjoying the show, selling out the Beacon venue quickly. In New York City, the clubhouse headquarters of “Watch What Happens Live” only has room for an audience of 34.
Andy Cohen is loving the energy, and he thinks it’s also great for home TV viewers. The traveling show opens up lots of various booking opportunities, the longtime host says, so it’s a win-win for all.
Andy Cohen is one of the busiest late night television hosts around, and his broadcast presence is branching out even farther. Cohen is making the move to Thursday with the premiere of Fox’s “Love Connection” reboot. In addition to WWHL, Andy also features the primetime interview series “Then and Now” and the network’s many reality series reunions.
Another exciting venture debuts this summer with a syndicated version of “Watch What Happens Live.” It will kick off a six-week test run beginning June 26th.
Andy says he’s all for it if the Bravo cable network decides on more traveling shows in the future. Chicago and any city in Texas are favorites, he says. As long as you can get guests to these cities, it’s a lot of fun to go big.
