The Ellen DeGeneres Show, which is sometimes shortened to Ellen, was originally aired back in 2003 on NBC. The show has won as astounding 32 Emmys, and it was only just renewed through 2017 for over fourteen seasons. The show has a comedic background to it. This is completely natural, seeing as Ellen DeGeneres herself was a comedian. She often interviews celebrities and has musical guests. She is also noted for giving outstanding non-famous individuals slots on her show, allowing them their 15 minutes of fame.

Originally airing back in 2003, Jimmy Kimmel Live! is ABC's late night talk show. Although the show originally aired at 12:05, ABC decided to bump it up to 11:35pm back in February of 2011. This put it in competition with many of the other shows on this top ten list. Contrary to its name, the show no longer airs live unless there is a special event, like the Academy Awards. Friday's show is also no longer new. It is a recap of the week's episodes. Jimmy Kimmel Live! is ABC's longest running late night talk show.

Before Jay Leno took over The Tonight Show's franchise, the show was hosted by Johnny Carson. He reigned for 30 years, between 1962 and 1992. Back in 2002, ten years after Johnny Carson had retired, the show was ranked #12 on TV Guide's 50 Greatest TV Shows of All Time. Even though the show is no longer running, it would seem Johnny Carson cannot be beat.

Jimmy Fallon took over the Late Night enterprise back in 2009, just after Conan O'Brien left. The show airs weeknights at 12:35am. Much of the show involves comedy. This doesn't seem surprising given Fallon's SNL roots. Late Night with Jimmy Fallon has won two Emmy nominations. Fallon is slated to replace Jay Leno as the host of The Tonight Show next year. Seth Meyers will then come in to take over Late Night.
