Now that legends of late night like David Letterman and Jay Leno have moved on, the present crop of late night hosts have had to bring in their A-game and sharpen their satirical skills just to outlive the competition and to keep churning out good ratings for their host networks. Even the lock down has not prevented them from being able to do their jobs.

Jimmy Fallon has been hosting “The Tonight Show” in front of an iPhone around his home with his family, as have Samantha Bee and Conan O’Brien. AirPods can be seen sticking out of the ears of Stephen Colbert on earlier at-home episodes and guests on Jimmy Kimmel Live like Jerry Seinfeld, Kerry Washington, and Mark Hamill.

Here we take a look at some of the late night TV hosts that are on top of their game this season.

The Late Show (Stephen Colbert)

Late Night Show

The Late Show With Stephen COLBERT is officially number one. For the first time since he took over from David Letterman in 2015, Colbert and his CBS late-night show topped NBC’s “The Tonight Show Starring Jimmy Fallon.
Stephen Colbert has been a staple on prime time TV for a long time now, making him one of the most well-liked and respected people in the business. He is likely best known for his nearly ten year run hosting The Colbert Report, which was a Daily Show spin-off that parodied modern news reporting. In early September 2015, he took over as the host of The Late Show, succeeding the wildly popular David Letterman.

His first two books for parents and kids to enjoy together before bedtime — “Your Baby’s First Word Will Be Dada” and “Everything Is Mama” — were both number one in the New York Times.

Jimmy Kimmel Live

Before his career as a big time talk show host, Jimmy Kimmel worked in radio for a number of years and starred in Comedy Central shows such as Win Ben Stein’s Money and The Man Show. Then, in 2003, Kimmel left The Man Show permanently to host his own all-new talk show called Jimmy Kimmel Live!

Late Night (Seth Meyers)

However, in February 24th, 2014, he assumed his role as the host of Late Night with Seth Meyers and officially joined the ranks of talk show hosts. The show is produced by Broadway Video and Universal Television.

Late Night Show

Conan (Conan O’Brien)

Conan is a late-night talk show airing each Monday through Thursday on TBS in the United States. The hour-long show premiered on November 8, 2010, and is hosted by writer, comedian and performer Conan O’Brien. Describing itself as a traditional late-night talk show, Conan draws its comedy from recent news stories, political figures and prominent celebrities, as well as aspects of the show itself.

The show typically opens with a monologue from Conan O’Brien relating to recent headlines and frequently features exchanges with his sidekick, Andy Richter, and members of the audience.

Trevor Noah (The Daily Show)

The Daily Show is a nightly news parody that takes a reality-based look at news, trends, pop culture, current events, politics, sports, entertainment and the media. In each show, Trevor Noah and a team of correspondents comment on the day’s stories employing actual news footage, tapes field pieces, in-studio guests and on-the-spot coverage of important news events.

Late Night Show

The South African native has become one of the most REFRESHING voices in comedy since he took over Comedy Central’s Emmy-winning satire The Daily Show in 2015. Of course, given the state of politics at the time, Trevor Noah did, and still has, some very accessible material to work off of, but his approach is what keeps him fun to watch
