Outpacing the ratings of network funnymen, Stephen Colbert, Jimmy Kimmel, and Jimmy Fallon, there is a new late-night king in town and he goes by the name Greg Gutfeld.
As August closes, Gutfeld has made history, by becoming the first cable program that is the “most-watched” late-night show, beating out broadcast competitors at CBS, NBC, and ABC.
According to Fox News, Gutfeld’s Gutfeld! –
- Averaged “2.19 million viewers to defeat CBS” The Late Show with Stephen Colbert, which averaged 2.15 viewers,” marking the first month since January 2017 that the left-wing comedian did not finish at Number 1 in late-night television between broadcast and cable.
- Gutfeld! also outpaced ABC’s Jimmy Kimmel Live! NBC’s Tonight Show starring Jimmy Fallon, and Comedy Central’s The Daily Show, all in the month of August.
- CNN’s Anderson Cooper 360 fell behind Gutfeld, pulling in a meager average of 950,000 nightly views.
- Gutfeld! also pulled in an average of 358,000 in the much-coveted 25-54 age bracket, outpacing Tucker Carlson Tonight, Hannity, and The Five.
From his start in late-night television, with his Fox News show “Red Eye”, regularly featuring Andrew Breitbart as a guest, Gutfeld has come far. Calling him the King of Late-Night, would certainly give him pause, for one of his great one-liners. He is classically funny in a dead serious kind of way.
One only has to watch the show, to be hooked on his satirical genius. Gutfeld has a way of making his point, by asking thought provoking questions in a fun way, of his co-host regulars and guests, who then have the opportunity to join the humor, all while developing his point. Common sense reigns, all under the guise of humor, that is absolutely freewheeling! His recorded parodies of Joe Biden are hilarious!
Gutfeld presents the current news, political or otherwise in a thought-provoking manner – all with a comic twist. What is very interesting, is that for all his hard-hitting inferences, that mock much of the behaviors, lacking common sense on the part of the left – he is hands down robbing their ratings. Go Greg! Maybe the country will consider regaining some basic decency and common sense, in a way they can handle being challenged.
