    Another no-audience supporter here! I only started really watching this show regularly once you dumped the audience, and I've since stopped watching all the other late-night shows. There's something special with the lack of audience and Seth's joking with his staff and crew laughing in the background. Nobody else does it as well.

    I will forever remember fondly these in-studio, no-audience episodes. The crew laughing at Seth's jokes and imitations have been an island of hilarious refuge these past few months. The "fake" audience laughter just doesn't hold a candle to Wally cackling at baseball jokes.

    This just shows how media in America make a mockery of important issues. The saddest thing is by looking at the views and subscriptions this is how alot of people digest the news. In the comments people talking about the really bad jokes rather than the important issues. Sad very sad, how the majority of ppl in America have been conditioned by the media.

    The fact of the matter is that Facebook DOESN'T CREATE THE CONTENT, nor do they make people click on any content, regardless of the political or social ramifications. Calls to break up a conglomerate that facilitates open and free communication among ALL members of the species is tantamount to a surreptitious version of clandestine censorship once-removed that is in reality counter to freedom of expression and individual sovereignty and accountability. This is yet another way of the extreme left saying that individual people aren't responsible for their actions or choices, but are somehow victims to the big, bad wolf of the Patriarchy, Big Pharma, Big Tech, Big Whatever. I consider myself to be socially liberal, which used to mean that people had the right to choose. What seems to have been removed from the equation is that the right to choose comes with the responsibility of bearing the outcome of those choices, no matter what. Once upon a time, a social war was fought that allowed choice and associated responsibility to be forcibly CLAIMED by the individual, and now the pendulum has swung the other way entirely, with society rejecting responsibility because it no longer has the moral fortitude to accept it.

    Facebook seems an awful lot like the Standard Oil of today, and Zuckerberg like a modern day robber baron. America's antitrust laws were created to address the robber barons and their excesses in the Gilded Age of the 19th century. That seems as appropriate today as it did back then.
