late night host q scores analyzed stephen colbert wins arsenio hall loses

Ugh!!! As if TV execs needed another excuse to pander to the too often xenophobic masses!

A bunch of analysts at Q Scores just did a bunch of polling on each and every late night talk show, calculating each host's recognizability and "positive Q score," and the results were startling to say the least!

The overall winner was Stephen Colbert. The dude is hilarious, kind, and The Colbert Report recently dominated the Emmys, so it's not at all shocking that he tops the rankings!! Congratz to him!

But further down the list is where everything goes kaplooey!

Now that George Lopez is out of the game, Arsenio Hall is pretty much the only late night TV host of color. Well, the totally endearing dude came in dead last!!!

With a positive Q score of only 9 - compared to, say, Chelsea Handler's 12 or Colbert's 20 - Arsenio was deemed the least likable person on the entire list!

Ugh!! That's really a shame!

We hope network execs don't use this data as an excuse to continue excluding minorities from late night gigs!!!

For the record, HBO's new host John Oliver was deemed second most likable and Jon Stewart came in third! Wow, those Comedy Central alum are really doing it right!
