Female writers on late night shows in the U.S. 2019

This statistic presents the share of writers on selected late night shows that are women in the United States in 2019. The findings show that despite The Late Late Show with James Corden and Jimmy Kimmel Live having female co-head writers, and The Tonight Show Starring Jimmy Fallon having a female head writer, none of these shows had a cohort of writing staff that was more than 25 percent female. For Full Frontal With Samantha Bee, the share of writers that were women amounted to 45 percent, making the show the most evenly split in terms of writer gender.
