Geography of Late Night

After the late night drama recently, I thought it might be interesting to see where these guys came from. So I made a map (what else!). It's interesting... outside of Jay and Conan, every major late night host has been from the Midwest. Some say that's because middle America is turned off by anyone who is too hip or edgy. Personally, I think it's because a talk show host has to be friendly... endlessly... and people in the flyover states do seem to have an edge in that department.
