Greg Gutfeld Tops All Corners Of Late Night TV, Outperforms Colbert, Fallon
Fox News’ Greg Gutfeld is the new pronounced king of late night TV.
His show, “Gutfeld!” has reportedly “topped all corners in the 11 p.m. time slot” according to The Western Journal.
Big League Politics has reported on this rise in ratings in the past, stating that the show was created to compete against nightly comedy like “The Daily Show” and “The Colbert Report.”
It was also meant to offer Americans an alternative for news paired with a more playful twist instead of regurgitated woke talking points from hosts like Trevor Noah, Jimmy Kimmel, and Stephen Colbert.
As co-host of the “The Five’s” Jesse Watters put it: audiences are tired of being lectured.
According to Forbes, Gutfeld’s late night hit averages a total audience of 2.355 million viewers.
“The Late Show with Stephen Colbert” averages 2.143 million viewers, followed by “The Tonight Show with Jimmy Fallon” at 1.318 million viewers.
The Western Journal noted that Gutfeld’s show also led in adults aged 25-54, which is an important demographic group for advertisers.
The week of August 12 was the third week in which Gutfeld has come out on top, the outlet added.
This story comes at a time when corporate “comedy” shows are struggling to retain their audiences. Largely in part to their bad politics and inability to be funny at the expense of the Democrat party and ruling regime.
Samantha Bee is a great example of this, after her show “Full Frontal” became part of the TBS network’s latest string of cutbacks for late-night television.
Bee was notorious for her hardcore leftist views and became a well-known name in late-night progressive media for her vile rants against Republicans and conservatives. She went viral on occasion and was featured in various SJW “cringe complications” for spouting off nonsense about former President Donald Trump and his administration.

“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 said regarding his success.
“People don’t go to entertainment for homework,” he said in an article from 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,” he added.
Moreover: “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.”
Turns out Gutfeld’s strategy is already paying dividends.
