Comedy Central’s “Daily Show” has produced some of the most likable names in late night
Stephen Colbert is the only host in late night TV who plays a character. On “The Colbert Report,” he’s a self-absorbed, closed-minded caricature of a jingoistic talk show host, who is supposed to be anything but endearing.
But Americans embrace him anyway. Colbert is the most-liked late night talk show host, according to data that the Q Scores company provided to TheWrap. The leader of Colbert Nation and host of Comedy Central’s “Colbert Report” has the highest Positive Q Score in late night: a 20.
To create Q Scores, executive vice president Henry Schafer and his team provides a celebrity’s name and a brief description to more than 1,800 viewers. The viewers are asked if they recognize the person, and how they feel about him or her. The average Positive Q Score for a celebrity is 15.

On top of winning the People’s Choice Award for Best Late Night Host, this has to welcome news (or, uh, data.) We all knew Stephen had a high I.Q., now “The Wrap” has demonstrated he has a high “Q,” too. Who knew? We did here at the Hub, for sure! You can see the overall late night host rankings at The Wrap.
In this month’s catch up we have new music from Bryan Dinello, interviews with Jon Stewart, Elliott Kalan, Jessica Williams, Lewis Black, Neil deGrasse Tyson and Steve Carell, humour pieces from Amy and David Sedaris, and John Oliver’s new HBO series gets a premiere date.
Jordan Klepper has been tapped by Comedy Central’s “The Daily Show with Jon Stewart” to join fellow correspondents Samantha Bee, Jason Jones, Aasif Mandvi and Jessica Williams on “The Best F*&#ing News Team Ever!” Klepper’s first appearance on the show, reporting “live” from Ukraine, is scheduled to air tonight, March 3 at 11:00 p.m. ET/PT.
