It’s hard to believe that Greg Gutfeld’s late night show Gutfeld! has already been on the air for a year.
When the show first was announced, there were plenty of liberals who predicted it would crash and burn but they could not have been more wrong.
Not only did the show last, it crushed the other cable networks in ratings. Gutfeld even crushed some of the long established late night shows.
FOX News reports:
‘Gutfeld!’ celebrates one-year anniversary with largest audience ever, crushing CNN and MSNBC combined
“Gutfeld!” celebrated its one-year anniversary with its highest-rated week yet.
Fox News host Greg Gutfeld’s program averaged 2.2 million viewers from March 28 to April 1 to easily outdraw CNN’s “Don Lemon Tonight” and MSNBC’s “The 11th Hour with Stephanie Ruhle” combined. “Gutfeld” quadrupled Lemon’s audience and also topped ABC’s “Jimmy Kimmel Live!” and NBC’s “The Tonight Show starring Jimmy Fallon.”
Fox News’ foray into late-night programming has increased the 11 pm. ET timeslot’s audience by +81% compared to the year before “Gutfeld!” launched. It premiered a year ago on April 5, 2021.
The success of “Gutfeld!” helped Fox News finish the week as the most-watched basic cable network, as it averaged 1.6 million total viewers. MSNBC averaged 698,000 to finish second, followed by TBS’ average audience of 640,000. It marked the 33rd consecutive week that Fox News beat CNN and MSNBC combined among total day viewers.
Fox News was No. 1 among the advertiser-coveted demographic of adults age 25-54, too, averaging 271,000 demo viewers to top second-place TBS at 269,000.
Congratulations to Greg and his entire crew. This video is pretty funny.

It’s nice to have another option in late night that isn’t just an hour of bashing Republicans.
That’s what the majority of late night has been reduced to in recent years.
