Well at least this is entertainment, unlike this extremely dangerous to our democracy video

Trump jokes write themselves.

They've been co-ordinating their DNC propaganda for quite a while now. Usually they try to put their own mark on it, but they clearly don't even have to try to hide it any longer.

 seeing seeing how the same writers work on different shows of course this happens. Not to mention the recycling of entire plot lines

Meh. I don't watch any of these show's so the fact they have similar *jokes* is moot to me. Can only take so much political commentary on any given day and this is not my chosen source for that.

I believe all the comedy writing has been contracted to Bangladesh.

You have 10 + shows of writers with similar senses of humor all coming up with jokes based on the same handful of quotes or events every day. Over the course of years of course there are going to be similar if not identical jokes occasionally.

These shows are 5 days a week. They do around 10 jokes a monologue. If there are 10 shows that is roughly 25,000 jokes a year.

Law of averages.

I'm not up late enough to know but I suspect it's like that a lot.

Still processing this. I'll say this: I found the similarities--I mean, we're talking more than similarities; most of the jokes were virtually, word-for-word, identical--surprising.

Next thing you know, something newsworthy will happen and all the news agencies report on the same thing on the same day.

Amazeballs.  Comedians that comment on daily events comment on an event from the day...and they are very similar.
