Fox News personality Greg Gutfeld saw his late-night comedy show get more ratings Tuesday than any other show on CNN or MSNBC.
Overall, “Gutfeld!“ Landed third in the 25-54 demographic coveted by advertisers, bested only by a pair of Fox shows, one of which he also co-hosted.
In numbers posted by Showbiz Daily, the Fox News program scored 1.88 million total viewers and 322,000 in the targeted age range.
Those numbers obliterate all airing on competing news networks CNN and MSNBC, and trail only “The Five” and “Tucker Carlson Tonight” on Fox.
Nielsen Media Research indicates that Gutfeld’s program averaged 2.1 million viewers through 2022.

It’s getting harder for the mainstream media to ignore Greg Gutfeld’s ratings and a winning panel formula to make viewers feel like they’re hanging out with a bunch of friends and cracking wise about the day’s events.
Vox recently analyzed the show’s success and asked, “Is the comedy war winning on the right?”
Anyone who watches “Saturday Night Live” or Jimmy Kimmel’s Late-Night Drive knows there isn’t an active ‘comedy war’. Those shows are thoroughly deprived original comedy
There is no ‘battle’ between a hammer and a nail. Just have the constant pummeling of the nail. Gutfeld is hammering the ratings. Those other comedy shows, nail it.
Vox notes Gutfeld “ascended to his long-awaited destiny as the face of late-night comedy on Fox News.”
Those ratings indicate he’s becoming the face of late-night comedy, period.

Chris Wallace gets some bad news
While Greg Gutfeld may be celebrating his ratings, his former Fox News colleague Chris Wallace has seen his worst numbers since joining CNN.
Ratings from the show “Who’s Talking to Chris Wallace?” Ask the more important question: “Who I see Chris Wallace?”
The program drew just 323,000 total viewers, barely more than what Gutfeld was drawing in the 25-54 age demographic alone. For that segment, Wallace’s show earned just 38,000 viewers.

He is not alone in that network. As The Political Insider reported earlier this week, CNN suffered its worst ratings week in nine years for January 16-22.
The news prompted progressive journalist Glenn Greenwald to comment that CNN’s low ratings were “well deserved” and “good for the country”.
“In the Trump era CNN turned itself into a fanatical political PAC, got some quick sugar highs, hired an army of US security state operatives, and endorsed one lie after another with no retractions or accountability,” Greenwald added. .

And Wallace, who was promoted by the mainstream media as a straightforward and unbiased source of news, incredibly jumped at that plunge. biased the ship
Gutfeld slammed CNN when news broke that they were considering hiring a comedian for their lineup to boost ratings, suggesting the network was already a joke.
“CNN was already funny and they went ahead and they ruined it,” Gutfeld said.
“I’m definitely talking about the golden age of comedy. Chris Cuomo, Don Lemon, Brian Stelter,” he continued. “Or as they are known in the business, the Three Stooges. Those were the days, weren’t they?”
