Fox News late-night show host, Greg Gutfeld is now ruling the late-night American cable TV as his FNC show, Gutfeld! is dominating the 11 P.M. time slot.
With an average total of 2.355 million viewers, Gutfeld defeated the legendary left-leaning CBS late-night show, “The Late Show with Stephen Colbert” which had 2.143 million average viewers followed by NBC’s “The Tonight Show with Jimmy Fallon” with an embarrassing 1.318 million average viewers, with ABC’s “Jimmy Kimmel Live!” being the least watched at 1.084 million average viewers.
When it comes to the 25-54 demographic, which is considered crucial for advertisers, Gutfeld broke all ongoing records and had an average of 397,000 viewers. Comparatively, Colbert had 373,000 viewers, Fallon 372,000 viewers, and Kimmel had the lowest, 264,000.
As Gutfeld manages to secure and hold his top ranking position for more than three weeks straight, his competitors in cable news are having a really hard time even getting close to his viewership in the same 11 P.M. hour.
MSNBC’s “The 11th Hour with Stephanie Ruhle,” had an average viewership of 1.381 viewers last week with CNN’s “Don Lemon Tonight” surfing on CNN’s failing legacy, having just 665,000 viewers in the same 11 pm hour.
“I’m interested in pulling people in who want to have a good time and are open to stuff — but a lot of it is just weird stuff from me,” Gutfeld remarked on his massive success.
He told Forbes contributor, Andy Meek that he avoided using a “lecturing tone” on his show, something that his competitors are often seen doing.
“People don’t go to entertainment for homework,” he said. “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.”
“I spend a lot of time talking about media. Because I know the internal flaws of it. I know what’s wrong with things. Because I was in there and knew who I was working with. I know the assumptions that reporters and editors have, and how they try to please their peers,” he added.
“People have had it with being told that every institution in your life is somehow oppressor vs. oppressed. The thing we did was we said we’re no different than you are. We’re looking at this stuff with a jaundiced eye. We get it. We’re on your side. So, I think it’s a combination of we’re entertainment, and we’re not homework,” Gutfeld continued.
