Why are late-night hosts so tall?
#1
Almost all of them are tall:

Craig Kilborn - 6'5
Craig Ferguson - 6'2
Conan - 6'4
Fallon - 6'0
Kimmel - 6'0
Leno - 5'11
Carson Daily - 6'2
Letterman - 6'2
Colbert - 5'11
John Oliver - 6'0
Seth Myers - 5'11
Trevor Noah - 5'11
etc.

The only ones I can think of that are below average height are Jon Stewart (5'7) and James Corden (5'8). But even then they are not that short.

Good observation.

Kimmel and Fallon are not 6 feet tall and Jon Stewart claimed to be 5'6", but you're right, most of them are at least above average height as are most American presidents, CEOs and sportsmen. This is why many people think that the average American is much higher than 5'9".

Why? I think the answer is pretty obvious.

Hosts need to convey status, and being tall does just that. Also the fact that tall people make more money.
