Jon Stewart Joins Roster of Most Influential Late-Night Hosts

5 August 2015 11:47 AM, PDT | Variety - TV News | See recent Variety - TV News news »

When Jon Stewart exits “The Daily Show,” he will join a small group of elite hosts who changed the tone and importance of talkshows. Here are a dozen others (in chronological order) whose influence was long-lasting.

Steve Allen

He created the template for late-night talk with “Tonight Starring Steve Allen,” which ran from 1954-57 on NBC. There was a desk, chatter with multiple guests, comedy, and music guests, including Elvis Presley — even though Allen hated rock ‘n’ roll.

Meet Nate and Marni, two complete opposites that have one thing in common: they are both eccentrically unable to find someone that they believe is “The One.” That is, until they mistakenly meet on a blind date that they go on together instead of with the dates they were set up with.

Now, together they »
