You can say this much for President Donald Trump: he’s making late night television great again.

“Saturday Night Live” is on a roll. Weeknights are seeing a bump too, and the shows and hosts with the sharpest political humor getting the most viewers.

Case in point: Stephen Colbert on CBS’s Late Show won the time slot last week besting Jimmy Fallon’s “Tonight Show.”
