Fox News continues to dominate in cable news ratings.
The show “The Five” is the most highly rated show on Fox News.
The 5 p.m. show far-outpaced its competition on Monday, pulling in 3.53 million total viewers.
The second highest-rated show on cable news was “Tucker Carlson Tonight,” also on Fox News, which racked up 3.11 million total viewers.
In April, Carlson had the top-rated news show among adults 25=54 coming in second overall behind The Five.
Also in April, Jesse Watters Primetime took third place followed by Hannity and Bret Baier.
New numbers show the Fox News shows are holding strong and attracting more viewers than ever.
Other news shows are reporting dismal numbers in comparison.
“In the key 25-54 age demographic, The Five also landed in first place with 498,000 viewers. Tucker Carlson brought in 409,000 viewers to come in second in the demo. Rachel Maddow led MSNBC with 2.28 million total viewers, making her the most-watched female host on Monday night as she just beat out Laura Ingraham’s 2.02 million total viewers. Jake Tapper led CNN with 541,000 total viewers at 5 p.m.,” Mediaite reported.
Conservative Brief reported a breakdown of the ratings, shown below:
Fox News: 1.70 million
Fox News: 246,000
Here are the prime time averages — encompassing shows which air from 8-11 p.m. — in total viewers and the 25-54 demo.
ox News: 2.53 million
MSNBC: 1.71 million
Fox News: 313,000
This has also been a huge year for host Greg Gutfeld, who co-hosts “The Five” and has a popular late-night show on the weekends, Conservative Brief wrote.
Fox News dominated the cable news ratings in May, with Gutfeld being part of two shows in the top 7:
–Fox News | 5 p.m. /The Five: 3,279,000 / 25 telecasts
–Fox News | 8 p.m. / Tucker Carlson Tonight: 3,233,000 / 22 telecasts
–Fox News | 9 p.m./ Hannity: 2,720,000 / 21 telecasts
–Fox News | 7 p.m./ Jesse Watters Primetime: 2,646,000 / 17 telecasts
–Fox News | 6 p.m. / Special Report with Bret Baier: 2,475,000 / 25 telecasts
–Fox News | 10 p.m./The Ingraham Angle: 2,256,000 / 23 telecasts
–Fox News | 11 p.m./Gutfeld! : 2,001,000 / 23 telecasts
–MSNBC | 9 p.m./The Rachel Maddow Show: 1,950,000 / 9 telecasts

–Fox News | 9-10 a.m./10-11 a.m./America’s Newsroom: 1,709,000 / 50 telecasts
As noted by Forbes, Gutfeld’s weekend late-night show has been delivering massive viewership.
Gutfeld’s 11 p.m. show on Fox News landed second in all of cable news in the main 25-54 demographic on Friday, beating out The Ingraham Angle (with guest host Jason Chaffetz) and “The Five,” which he co-hosts, wrote Conservative Brief.
Gutfeld’s show drew a whopping 2.02 million total viewers, which beat out Ingraham’s show at 1.9 million.
Gutfeld! fell just short of beating “The Five,” which drew 2.92 million total viewers.
Gutfeld’s 11 pm show has been a ratings powerhouse since its launch a little over a year ago now, and is far above CNN in ratings.
In addition, Monday was an important day for Gutfeld as well, marking the debut of a newer, expanded studio for his show — the second-most-watched late-night program in all of broadcast and cable, Conservative Brief wrote.
In fact, you could argue that at least some of Gutfeld’s success (an average of almost 2 million viewers in April alone, topping Jimmy Kimmel and Jimmy Fallon) is best understood within the context of missteps and ratings decline at CNN. To say nothing of the ideological like-mindedness across most of the late-night landscape.

“People don’t go to entertainment for homework,” Gutfeld told Forbes. “You don’t pay for homework. And it feels like there’s been this modern kind of woke culture where everything is being informed with a lesson you have to learn — it’s like, I don’t need to be lectured. I didn’t come here to be told how this is oppression and I have to, like, learn about these things. I came to be entertained.”
“If you’ve been watching my stuff, I spend a lot of time talking about media. Because I know the internal flaws of it. The Gutfeld show became successful because it came at exactly the right time.” he said. “People have had it with being told that every institution in your life is somehow oppressor vs. oppressed.”
“My show is deliberately surreal and absurd because I’m absurd. I call it the Dean Wormer effect. Dean Wormer was the bad guy in Animal House and was always kind of the hood ornament of what a Republican was, and everybody else has fun, right? … My goal was always to flip that. So that we’re the people having fun, and the left, Democrats, are the scolds. You see that now, with even Bill Maher saying, my God, my side is humorless and the other side is having fun.”
Gutfield brings his own unique brand of commentary to his hosting on his show and on The Five.
He recently quipped,” The Democratic bench is thinner than Chris Wallace’s demo reel from CNN+,” Forbes reported.
Forbes notes that Gutfield’s style is edgy and irreverent, with snark.
