Late night television in the United States is the block of television programming airing after p.m. Traditionally, this type of programming airs after the late local news and is most notable for being the daypart used for a particular genre of programming that falls somewhere between a variety show and a talk show.Popular shows within the late night talk show genre include The Tonight Show Starring Jimmy Fallon, Late Show with Stephen Colbert, The Late Late Show with James Corden, Late Night with Seth Meyers, Jimmy Kimmel Live! Famous former hosts include Johnny Carson of The Tonight Show, Jay Leno of The Tonight Show (who has taped more episodes than any other late night host), Arsenio Hall of The Arsenio Hall Show, Tom Snyder of Tomorrow, and The Late Late Show, Steve Allen, the father of the late night talk show and founder of Tonight (now known as "The Tonight Show"), Merv Griffin and Dick Cavett, early competitors with Carson, and Jack Paar, the man who followed Steve Allen as host of the Tonight Show and who is responsible for setting the standards for the genre.This made way for Conan O'Brien (formerly the host of Late Night, another long-running NBC late night franchise) to take over The Tonight Show, while Jimmy Fallon has assumed hosting duties for Late Night.The remaining late night programs (Poker After Dark and Last Call with Carson Daly) remained as is, and NBC warned its affiliates not to preempt or delay Leno for local news.A notable example is Last Call with Carson Daly, which (except for a two-year period from 2007 to 2009) has traditionally avoided monologues and comedy bits, although it originally utilized most major elements of the traditional late-night talk format; in 2009, the show deviated even further from the traditional format by taping all hosted and interview segments on-location (the former of which serve merely as wraparounds as Daly does not interview the guests) and shooting all interviews and musical performances in the style of a documentary.Late night talk shows often incorporate segments of political satire.When Late Show with David Letterman and The Chevy Chase Show debuted in 1993, Hall lost a large number of affiliates and ended up leaving the air at the end of the season.
Jay Leno, formerly the host of NBC's long-running Tonight Show franchise, had moved his show to p.m.
Often, the show's announcer is also a major part of the show.
Famous announcers include Gene Rayburn and Hugh Downs (both from the early years of The Tonight Show); Ed Mc Mahon from The Tonight Show Starring Johnny Carson; Edd Hall and John Melendez from The Tonight Show with Jay Leno; Bill Wendell and Alan Kalter from Late Show with David Letterman; Dicky Barrett from Jimmy Kimmel Live!
Eastern Time, ahead of the local newscasts on most stations in a time slot that competes with CBS's and ABC's prime time programming (though Fox affiliates would have cut to post-primetime news or sitcom reruns by this time).
Beginning in September 2009, Leno hosted The Jay Leno Show, which was mostly similar to The Tonight Show with Jay Leno with a few adjustments.
