Formatting question[edit]

Huh? Why are Bill Maher and Chelsea Handler's programs not italicized? -Justin (koavf)·T·C·M 02:41, 18 December 2007 (UTC)

Why isn't Fox News' comedy show Red Eye on here? —Preceding unsigned comment added by (talk) 14:08, 28 February 2009 (UTC)

I added the TV One late night programs recently but I seem to have also made the shows in the Upcoming section not appear even though they're still in the editing section. How can they reappear? TimidObserver (talk) 12:25, 24 May 2010 (UTC)

Pre-emptive question:[edit]

When Leno has his show at 10pm (this July), which is generally accepted Prime Time, should that program be included in this template? TheHYPO (talk) 19:39, 7 March 2009 (UTC)

South Park[edit]

Why was South Park deleted? It's new at 10.TBone777 (talk) 03:57, 17 March 2009 (UTC)

It is of substantially different style than the other listed programmes. -- (talk) 04:55, 14 April 2009 (UTC)

USLateNightTelevision and Late night; are both needed?[edit]

{{USLateNightTelevision}} has been proposed for deletion:


as a redundant alternative to {{Late night}} (included in most of the same articles). Only the proposer (yours truly) and the creator of USLateNightTelevision have contributed to the discussion so far. More participants are welcome. (talk) 09:04, 11 April 2009 (UTC).

If web soup and The Soup is added here then Tosh.0 should be added as well. Gambit9000 (talk) 01:33, 14 September 2010 (UTC)


Should Leno's new show be on this template? This is late night, and Leno is in primetime. Shark96z (talk) 13:06, 16 September 2009 (UTC)

Agreed. Leno is not a late night show; it is a primetime show. All press material and promos describe the show as primetime - even the house band is titled "the primetime band". This is not a "late night talk or comedy show".

Well now that it's official that Leno will move after the olympics should we waiot untill it debuts on Late Night or put it on nowTheSimpsonsRocks (talk) 18:31, 10 January 2010 (UTC)ThesimpsonsRocks


Should Nightline be included on this list? It could be considered talk and it goes on at 11:30? What about Sportscenter? There is a new live version of that at 11. I would really consider both of these shows as news, but since there isn't any other template they'd fit into, I was wondering if people think they'd work here. --Flyguy33 (talk) 17:51, 11 May 2011 (UTC)

The syndicated Comics Unleashed should probably be added; Nightline is more of a newsmagazine, while SportsCenter is pretty much straight news. (talk) 21:05, 13 February 2016 (UTC)

Change of title[edit]

See this change. For some reason, news satire and comedy shows are removed from the title, leaving only talk shows in the header. This means we should have to say goodbye to, for example, Last Week Tonight with John Oliver. I am not sure if such consequences are beneficial for the template. Regards, Jeff5102 (talk) 10:10, 19 December 2016 (UTC)

Yes, I reckon that the previous title is much more fitting and inclusive. Also, not sure why we needed to change 'Network' to 'Broadcast'. --TonyIsTheWoman (talk) 16:09, 19 December 2016 (UTC)

Redacted Tonight with Lee Camp[edit]

Hey, @Jeff5102: Is it not best to first create a page of the show, before adding it to the template? The current link redirects to his own page and has very little info about the show. Also, the late night template isn't added there.--TonyIsTheWoman (talk) 20:53, 19 December 2016 (UTC)

Thanks. Just do what you need to do. Regards,Jeff5102 (talk) 21:02, 19 December 2016 (UTC)
So you OK with it being removed from the template, until such page is created? --TonyIsTheWoman (talk) 21:15, 19 December 2016 (UTC)
Indeed.Jeff5102 (talk) 08:52, 20 December 2016 (UTC)
Cheers! --TonyIsTheWoman (talk) 16:03, 20 December 2016 (UTC)

The President Show[edit]

While the latest Comedy Central addition (The Jim Jefferies Show) does fit the format, The President Show is in fact a sketch-show, not a talk-show / news satire. Any objection to its removal? TonyIsTheWoman (talk) 19:48, 19 June 2017 (UTC)

  • I believe it should stay, since I don't see any difference between President Show and The Colbert Report. He does satirical topical comedy segments in character, including remote segments, and interviews a guest at the end of each episode. -- Wikipedical (talk) 23:46, 19 June 2017 (UTC)
