Greg Gutfeld has long been a famous Fox News presenter, known for his keen humor and outspoken conservative beliefs. Nevertheless, when he began his own late-night comedy program in 2015, many were doubtful of its success.
But, Gutfeld’s program rapidly became a smash, and according to the most recent reports, it has been receiving high numbers.
Given the competitive nature of late-night television, Gutfeld’s success is especially noteworthy. He’s genuinely competing against Stephen Colbert and Jimmy Kimmel, two of late-greatest night’s stars, and he’s defeating them.

“The size of that viewing audience bests both NBC’s ‘The Tonight Show With Jimmy Fallon’ and ABC’s ‘Jimmy Kimmel Live’ and also consistently trumps such cable rivals as Comedy Central’s ‘The Daily Show’ and HBO’s ‘Last Week Tonight’ and ‘Real Time With Bill Maher,’” according to Nielsen.
“Vox, known to be more of a liberal news organization, opined that “The biggest comedy show on late-night right now is not on ABC or NBC or CBS or Fox. It’s not on Comedy Central. It’s certainly not streaming. It’s on Fox News, and its name is ‘Gutfeld!,’”” reported Conservative Brief.
