“A comedic hour featuring parodies on current events and signature monologues, The Greg Gutfeld Show has continued to outpace its late night competition since launching in 2015.”
The Greg Gutfeld Show, which has enjoyed great rating success at 10 PM on Saturday nights, is now being expanded to air Monday through Friday night at 11 PM.
This is great news for anyone who wants an alternative to other late-night shows which now cater exclusively to the radical left.
FOX News put out a press release yesterday:
FOX News Channel’s Hit Late Night Program The Greg Gutfeld Show Moves to Weeknights at 11 PM/ET
FOX News Channel’s (FNC) hit primetime Saturday talk show The Greg Gutfeld Show hosted by Greg Gutfeld will expand to a full weeknight schedule, announced FOX News Media CEO Suzanne Scott. The program will launch in the second quarter of 2021 and air weeknights at 11 PM/ET, followed by FOX News @ Night, which will move to 12 AM/ET, increasing the hours of live and original programming on FNC to 21 per weekday. A replacement primetime weekend program for Gutfeld’s 10PM/ET Saturday evening show will be announced at a later date.
In making the announcement, Ms. Scott said, “People need a reason to laugh. Greg’s unique and irreverent talk show has been an incredible success, often beating the late night broadcast competition, despite its Saturday timeslot. With one of the most loyal and engaged audiences in cable news, we’re thrilled to bring the show to weekday primetime and further solidify Greg’s place among late night television stars.”
Mr. Gutfeld added, “This feels like the perfect next step following the amazing success of the weekend show, which is due in large part to a great staff and a management that lets the show follow its own unique path. Every day someone comes up to me to ask when are we going nightly, so now that we are, there will be approximately 3 million people who will claim it’s their idea!”
A comedic hour featuring parodies on current events and signature monologues, The Greg Gutfeld Show has continued to outpace its late night competition since launching in 2015. In 2020, the program delivered its highest rated year on record, and was the most-watched weekend show in the key younger demo in all of cable news (2.5 million Total Viewers; 400,000 in the 25-54 demo). The Greg Gutfeld Show also surpassed various late-night programs airing on broadcast in total viewers, including ABC’s Jimmy Kimmel Live! and NBC’s The Tonight Show.
Gutfeld is going to continue to appear on The Five at 5 PM in addition to his new duties. As the report above mentions, FOX News @ Night is moving to midnight. It does not say whether or not Shannon Bream will continue to host but we’ll assume she is until we hear otherwise.
FOX News has struggled with ratings on some of their programs since election night as many fans were angered by their early call of Arizona for Biden while delaying calls for clear Trump wins in Texas and other states.
Like Tucker Carlson, Greg Gutfeld is one of the network’s hosts who has managed to avoid the scorn of Trump supporters and other FOX News fans.DONATE
