It’s A New Record For Greg Gutfeld In The Cable News Ratings

Published on

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.

“Gutfeld!, brought in 2.2 million total viewers on Tuesday night, beating its lead-in, The Ingraham Angle. Roseanne Barr joined Gutfeld! as a guest,” according to Mediaite.

Gutfeld! was the 6th highest-rated show overall on cable news in total viewers and the 3rd highest-rated in the key 25-54 age demographic — behind Tucker Carlson and The Five — which was co-hosted by Greg Gutfeld.

In the 11 p.m. hour, Gutfled! [sic] crushed its cable news competition as CNN brought in only 371,000 total viewers and MSNBC scored 972,000.

According to Nielsen Media Research, Gutfeld! has an average audience of 2.1 million viewers through 2022.

“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.

CNN is reportedly working on its own late-night show to compete with Gutfeld, examining more progressive candidates for the job.

“Brass at the famously progressive news network have reportedly floated names such as Bill Maher, Trevor Noah, Arsenio Hall, and Jon Stewart, as candidates, to offer a nontraditional, late-night-esque take on the day’s news. Fox News has found success with ‘Gutfeld!,’ the late-night comedy show hosted by Greg Gutfeld,” according to the Daily Mail.

“But Gutfeld has been a ratings champion for Fox News with “The Five,” a show he cohosts, as the top show in cable news, Nielsen said. In January, the comedian and political analyst managed to win two of the top three shows on cable news in the key 25-54 age demographic, The Brief added. CONTINUE READING…
