Fox News' Greg Gutfeld secured the #1 spot in Late Night TV on Tuesday, elbowing out Stephen Colbert
· · Aug 20, 2021 ·

Is anyone else tired of hearing Stephen Colbert, Trevor Noah, and Jimmy Kimmel preach about how you're a domestic terrorist if you deny the slightest of the woke beliefs?

I guess at least a few of you are:

Fox News launched Greg Gutfeld's late-night show in April with the goal of beating out all other traditional rivals. On Tuesday night, that happened.

On Tuesday night, "Gutfeld!" took in a total average of 2.120 million viewers, with 434,000 in the key demo, on average. The "Late Show," which has an 11:35 p.m. ET start time on CBS, grabbed an average of 1.896 million total viewers of whom 423,000 were in the demo. Jimmy Fallon's "Tonight Show" — an NBC program which also airs at 11:35 — came next with 1.216 million total viewers, on average, and 354,000 in the demo.

Yeah, that's a margin of more than 220,000 viewers, which isn't a small deal, especially for a new show that's going up against the decades-old late-night regime.

This is also super important:

(It's worth noting that "Gutfeld!" airs at 8 p.m. PT on the West Coast, and does not repeat at 11 p.m. when the broadcast networks' late-night shows are on.)

You know what they say about going woke! I guess comparing American grandmas to the Taliban isn't working in the joke department!
