Jimmy Fallon is in danger because Tonight's viewing figures hide behind Colbert & # 39; s for an entire season

He was once the king of the late night thanks to his exuberant personality and great comedy skills.

But now the stint of Jimmy Fallon as host of The Tonight Show may be in danger.

The 44-year-old hostess of the late evening recently woke up his team behind the scenes in the wake of a rating challenge from Stephen Colbert, according to Page six.

Jimmy & # 39; s producer Katie Hockmeyer left the show with little publicity shortly after she returned from maternity leave, although apparently she still works for NBC in an unknown role.

A source told page six that & # 39; Katie no longer works during the Tonight Show & # 39; but that & # 39; She and Jimmy are still around – he loves her. & # 39;

Her departure follows the resignation of the old showrunner Mike DiCenzo.

The new showrunner, contemporary veteran Jim Bell, is reportedly embroiled in fierce quarrels with executive producer Lorne Michaels, who he believes are stuck in the past & # 39 ;.

On Wednesday, the newly released Nielsen data revealed that CBS & The 39 Show with Stephen Colbert the The Tonight Show and ABC's Jimmy Kimmel Live! for the third year in a row.

The loss of the ratings was particularly worrying for Fallon, because Colbert managed to convince him in the ratings for every broadcast of the season, a first.

Fallon & # 39; s first assessment slide can be traced back to his notorious interview with the then presidential candidate Donald Trump in 2016.

The former SNL star was praised by television and culture critics, as well as by viewers, for what was seen as a softball interview.

In contrast, Colbert has continued much of the political humor that inspired his Comedy Central series The Colbert Report.

The movement seems to have dealt with viewers. Although all late evening shows had a decline in viewers, Colbert was only two percent, less than the nine percent dip in Fallon.

Colbert also captured the coveted 18-to-49 demography, making it the first time that the Late Show had triumphed with that group since David Letterman hosted the Clinton administration.

In recent months, Jimmy has taken on a more political tendency for The Tonight Show, although he still prefers non-political skits and games to his competitors.

Fallon unveiled last year The Hollywood Reporter that he had become depressed after the failed interview.

& # 39; Go ahead, & # 39; okay, we get it. I heard you. You made me bad. So what now? Are you happy? I am depressed. Do you want to push me more? What do you want me to do? Do you want me to kill myself? What would make you happy? Get over it, & he said, while he remained challenging even when he was choking.

In response to the emotional interview, the host was mocked by Trump on Twitter.

& # 39; Jimmy is now sniffing at everything that he is the famous & # 39; hair show & # 39; has done to me (where he severely destroyed my hair), and that he would have done it differently now because it is said to have me & humanized & – he takes heat. He called & said & # 39; sample ratings. & # 39; Be a Jimmy man! & # 39;
