Fox News personality Greg Gutfeld saw his late-night comedy show draw higher ratings on Tuesday than any other show on CNN or MSNBC.
Overall, “Gutfeld!“ landed in third place in the key 25-54 age demographic coveted by advertisers, bested only by a pair of Fox shows, one of which he also stars in as a co-host.
The numbers, posted by ShowBuzz Daily, have the Fox News program scoring 1.88 million viewers in total, and 322,000 in the targeted age range.
Those numbers obliterate anything being put out on competing news networks CNN and MSNBC, and trail only “The Five” and “Tucker Carlson Tonight” on Fox.
Nielsen Media Research indicates Gutfeld’s program averaged 2.1 million viewers through 2022.

It’s growing ever more difficult for the mainstream media to ignore Greg Gutfeld’s ratings and a winning panel formula that has viewers feeling 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 asking, “Is the right winning the comedy wars?”
Anybody watching “Saturday Night Live” or Jimmy Kimmel’s late-night drivel knows there isn’t an active ‘comedy war.’ Those shows are thoroughly devoid of actual comedy.
There’s no ‘war’ between a hammer and a nail. There’s just the constant pummeling of the nail. Gutfeld is the ratings hammer. Those other comedy shows, the nail.
Vox notes Gutfeld has “ascended to his long-awaited destiny as the face of late-night comedy on Fox News.”
