Tina Fey, Stephen Colbert, and The Simpsons join FanSided’s Fandom 250 nominees


Comedians, latenight hosts, and giants of television are among the latest inductees into FanSided’s Fandom 250. Where will they rank on the complete list?

Every day, we’re revealing 10 new nominees for the Fandom 250, FanSided’s definitive rankings of fandoms from across the realms of sports, television, movies, and more. Let’s take a look at some of the new competitors.

Today’s theme: things that make you go “ha.” Amy Schumer, Tina Fey, and Kevin Hart are among the most successful comedians on the planet right now, each of them bringing their own unique takes to specials, TV shows, movies, and good old fashioned comedy tours. Meanwhile, Stephen Colbert, Jimmy Fallon, and James Corden all belong to the new generation of latenight hosts. They haven’t been around for as long as the likes of Carson, Leno, and Letterman, but they’re forging a new path for the form, and have picked plenty of fans along the way.

Moving from people to TV shows, SeinfeldThe Simpsons, and Friends are three of the biggest sitcoms of the past 30 years. (That’s literally true for The Simpsons, which is now in its 28th season.) For many people who grew up in the ’90s, these shows defined funny. And thanks to home boxsets and Netflix, a new generation of fans can enjoy them.

  • Amy Schumer
  • Tina Fey
  • Aziz Ansari
  • Kevin Hart
