“Because comedy doesn’t work unless the underlying premise rings true..." The Left mistakes snark for comedy. Snark is a blatant insider's laugh at others with nothing more needed than a put-down satisfaction derived from laughing at someone you disagree with. TM

o Stephen Colbert turns out to be just as much of an a-hole as “Stephen Colbert.” Viewers have noticed.

After an initial burst of interest spurred by CBS’s big-bucks saturation advertising campaign for “The Late Show with Stephen Colbert,” the show’s ratings have tanked and it is now running third in late night behind NBC’s Jimmy Fallon and ABC’s Jimmy Kimmel, who rarely has managed second place before.

The reason? A survey by the Hollywood Reporter found that conservative viewers are turning off Colbert in droves. Nearly twice as many Republicans are watching Kimmel as Colbert, who has turned “Late Night” into a sort of wannabe MSNBC show.

The pattern is familiar: When a Democrat is the guest, Colbert is Barbara Walters. When a Republican is on, he turns into Tim Russert.

Gosh, whoever could have predicted that?

“Because comedy doesn’t work unless the underlying premise rings true, just about no conservative finds Colbert funny,” a Post columnist opined on April 11, 2014.

“So, though he will be dropping the faux-con shtick when he takes over Letterman’s chair, millions of conservatives won’t be watching. CBS is essentially writing off half the potential audience before the first show even airs.”

Ratings show that 47% of Colbert’s viewers identify as Democrats, 17% as Republicans. Kimmel’s audience is evenly split — 33% Democrats, 32% Republicans, while Fallon’s is nearly so (36% Democrats, 31% Republicans).

“Colbert Nation is filled with wealthy, socially liberal men who overwhelmingly support legalizing marijuana and want Bernie Sanders to be president,” pollster Jon Penn explained to The Hollywood Reporter. Some 30% of Colbert viewers report that they are atheists, which is the No. 1 “religion category” choice for “Late Show” viewers. (Memo to the US Marine Corps: Don’t bother advertising on Colbert. Manufacturers of pastel capri pants for men, on the other hand, should not miss out on this opportunity.)

Yep - just like the news divisions of the alphabet networks (with their biased reporting) have been writing us off for years.

Looks like Colbert might go the way of former CBS "stars" like Katie Couric and Bryant Gumbel (who were also just as smugly statist as Colbert). One can only hope.
