Gutfeld strikes back, takes down Joy Behar in under ten seconds. The new king of late night Greg Gutfeld went all in on Joy Behar of The View and he didn’t need to say very much.
This short video clip shows a little bit about what Joy Behar was saying, then cuts to the part where Greg Gutfeld issues what could be a response. Except, he didn’t say much, he just showed a tiny video clip and then laughter broke out as he and Tyrus were all smiles.
And that was all they had to see! The giant cow flying across the street was supposed to be a reference to Joy Behar, and people cracked the king up laughing! Some people may comment that they thought it was Lizzo, but no, it’s not about Lizzo and her wild or horrible clothes.
We’re talking about Joy Behar, and even Greg Gutfeld’s face looked like he was trying so hard not to laugh, but go ahead, Greg – you can laugh all you want when you’re the king of the late night ratings!
How well is Gutfeld doing? Well, Gutfeld’s ratings are better than Stephen Colbert’s and that was a huge success! Just last month, in August, Gutfeld played against CBS host Stephen Colbert, NBC’s Jimmy Fallon and ABC’s Jimmy Kimmel on the late-night show “Gutfeld.” Fox News Channel host Greg Gutfeld had his highest-rated week ever.
“Gutfeld!” delivered an average total audience of 2.355 million viewers for the week ending August 12, beating “The Late Show with Stephen Colbert” (2.143 million viewers), “The Tonight Show with Jimmy Fallon” (1.318 million viewers) and “Jimmy Kimmel Live!” (1.084 million viewers).
Additionally, dominating adults 25-54, the top demographic rated by national advertisers, “Gutfeld!” is also leading among new viewers.
Fox News averaged 397,000 viewers, followed by CBS Colbert (373,000 viewers), NBC Fallon (372,000 viewers) and ABC Kimmel (264,000 viewers). Beating Colbert in head-to-head matches when both hosts had original episodes four nights a week, the Fox News win marks Gutfeld’s third full week at the helm as king of late night.
According to ratings data compiled by Nielsen, “Gutfeld!” easily outperformed cable news competition, including MSNBC’s “11. hour with Stephanie Ruhl” (1.381 million viewers and 186,000 viewers in the prime demo) and CNN’s “Don Lemon Tonight” (just 665,000 total viewers and 146,000 prime), according to the Forbes demo.
“I’m interested in attracting people who want to have a good time and are open to things, but a lot of them are just weird things from me,” Gutfeld said recently when asked about the ratings success. Gutfeld also took a dig at Stewart on Comedy Central’s “The Daily Show” with his trademark irreverence: While he labels Stewart a “progressive progressive,” Gutfeld describes himself as more of a “weird.” .” “I am not interested in being anyone’s ideological enemy.”
“I’m a class clown who occasionally has a grain of wisdom,” Gutfeld said.
Simply put: More viewers watch Gutfeld and his nightly panelists than anything else on CNN and MSNBC.
One of the panelists on “Gutfeld!” include Kat Timpf, who is now the highest-profile woman in late-night comedy after TBS canceled “Full Frontal with Samantha Bee.”
