Any other questions?
1) The host doubles as a writer on each of these shows but we did not include them in the counts.
2) Although Jimmy Kimmel only has one female writer, she is a co-head writer. None of the other shows hosted by men have female head writers.
3) Craig Ferguson’s only female writer is his sister.
Also, this is missing counts for shows hosted by George Lopez (TBS) and Mo’Nique (BET).
And if you want to really jump into the rabbit hole, try to break down the stats further by race/ethnicity and/or how many white men, how many from a particular college, how many got writing jobs after first working as interns on the show, and how many of them owe me money.
