It would be nice if there were a single, simple explanation for why conservatives have failed at political TV satire. But the truth is there are many factors that have all contributed: the tendency of satire to skewer the establishment; the lack of conservatives drawn to comedy; the unique liberal anger when the medium came of age; the first-in training advantage of the Daily Show; the subtle biases of Hollywood executives making the decisions; as well as the different sensibilities of conservative and liberal viewers.
