Have you noticed late night television that's supposed to amuse and entertain recently hasn't been so, well, entertaining? Why is the former host of the Man Show now running an emotion-fueld Estrogen Hour? How come politics have seemingly taken the place of jokes in my previously favorite programs? Well, I think I have an answer: because given the current political climate, these shows are no longer designed to make you laugh, they're designed to make you feel, and they make you feel through a process of emotional contagion designed to affect your attitudes toward a topic with a given agenda.
