We are witnessing the most glaring example of “get woke, go broke” as Fox News host Greg Gutfeld is beating late-night veterans like Jimmy Kimmel, Stephen Colbert, and Jimmy Fallon in viewership as his show Gutfeld! is breaking all records on cable TV.
“Gutfeld! delivered its highest-rated quarter in program history as host Greg Gutfeld continued as the second most-watched late night host in all of broadcast and cable news. At 11 PM/ET, Gutfeld! also topped every program on CNN and MSNBC in total viewers and the younger 25-54 demo,” Fox News Corporation said in a statement.
“Gutfeld! posted double-digit percent growth since the same quarter last year in total viewers and A25-54 and averaged nearly 2 million viewers and 344,000 with A25-54 this quarter, outpacing ABC’s Jimmy Kimmel Live! and NBC’s The Tonight Show with Jimmy Fallon in total viewers,” the statement continues.
“FNC’s late-night show also bested Comedy Central’s The Daily Show and TBS’ Full Frontal with Samantha Bee across the board in total viewers and the younger 25-54 demo,” it adds detailing the embarrassment that Gutfeld is delivering to the woke hosts in his competition.
“Notably, Gutfeld! has the highest median income in all of late night television (ABC, CBS and NBC) in the younger 25-54 demo as well as the most upscale audience in total viewers and A25-54,” according to Fox News. The 25-54 demographic is considered critical for ads and Gutfeld is destroying records in this critical age group.
Gutfeld is not the only Fox News show that is crushing the competition. According to the latest data from AdWeek, Fox News outperformed all its competition in the 4-11 pm slot. And Fox News Network as a whole had the top 15 most-watched cable TV shows of the week and in the 25-54 demographic.
This success could be largely attributed to the network’s prime-time star, Tucker Carlson whose 8 pm show had a whopping 3.13 million total views and a massive 485,000 views in the ad-coveted demo in the 25-54 demographic. This number outperforms even when you combine viewership from CNN and MSNBC.
So the phrase, ‘”get woke, go broke” is not just a dying cliché as many think. it’s the literal reality for most liberals in today’s age.
