Fox News’ Greg Gutfeld dethroned Stephen Colbert as the highest rated Late Night TV host in August, raising even more questions about the future of liberal, far-left comedians and mainstream media content.
From Fox News:
Greg Gutfeld is the new king of late-night television, marking the first time in history that a cable program achieved the lofty benchmark of most-watched late-night show for an entire month as “Gutfeld!” finished August atop all competitors.
“Gutfeld!” averaged 2.19 million viewers to defeat CBS’ “The Late Show with Stephen Colbert,” which averaged 2.15 viewers. It was the first month since January 2017 that Colbert didn’t finish as the No. 1 late-night program between broadcast and cable.
August was the most-watched month for “Gutfeld!” since it launched in April 2021, as the Fox News program also outdrew ABC’s “Jimmy Kimmel Live!,” NBC’s “Tonight Show starring Jimmy Fallon” and Comedy Central’s “The Daily Show.”
“Gutfeld!” more than doubled the average audience for CNN’s most-watched show, as “Anderson Cooper 360” averaged only 950,000 nightly viewers.
