Who has the better late night show: Colbert or Fallon?

For night owls watching television, there have always been two shows dedicated to your entertainment: "The Late Show" on CBS and "The Tonight Show" on NBC. The rivalry between these shows isn't just network competition, but one of personality. "The Tonight Show" under Jay Leno, and now Jimmy Fallon, is a bit more family-friendly and down to Earth. "The Late Show" under David Letterman, and now Stephen Colbert, is edgy and absurd. Which show do you prefer? Read more and vote below!

Who has the better late night show: Colbert or Fallon?

The real choice is between Colbert and Fallon. Kimmel, know your role.

#TonightShowFallon

Stephen Colbert killed it on "The Colbert Report," but has had trouble finding his footing at "The Late Show." Maybe the whole 'better than though' schtick doesn't transfer?

#LateShowColbert

Jimmy Fallon is good, but only as good as the crew around him. He just doesn't have the same leadership as Jay Leno. Jimmy has the ratings lead right now, but Colbert is gaining on him. Will Jimmy be able to hold it together? Let's hope this doesn't turn into one "SNL" skit that lasts way too long.

Stephen Colbert is talented AF. He can do impressions, sing and improv. His comedic timing is flawless and he is down to get crazy. Check this scene where he ends up in a Segway jousting match with Tobey Maguire, or Elijah Wood or whoever the hell that is.

#TonightShowFallon

Jimmy Fallon has an infectious laugh. He's the embodiment of that funny guy who you like to catch up with because nothing needs to be taken that seriously. Sure, he's a bit more family friendly, but he's not a prudejust check out this back and forth with the always dirty Ricky Gervais.

Don't count out Colbert. This is a guy who oozes talent.

Meanwhile, Jimmy Fallon is a total tool.

Pshhhh, obviously you don't get the joke. We know Fallon is a bit of a nerd, that's what makes him approachable and a great host. Folks like J.T. genuinely like the guy and the chance to goof off. That's why his interviews are a blast to watch.

Colbert has eight, count em, Emmys for his work on "The Colbert Report." 

None for "The Late Show" yet, but give the guy a few years. He'll turn it around!
