Fox Host Greg Gutfeld has dethroned late-night television host Stephen Colbert with record numbers for a cable news show in the month of August.

Stephen Colbert, the liberal talk show host of CBS’s “The Late Show with Stephen Colbert,” has averaged 2.15 million viewers for the month of August and has held its position as the top spot since January 2017. Colbert embraced an anti-Trump persona that that many on the left loved.

In the last month, however, “Gutfeld!” successfully usurped Cobert and averaged 2.19 million viewers which was the most it had seen since the program’s launch in April 2021, according to Fox News.

In addition to “Gutfeld!” success, the Fox comedian also partakes in the most viewed television show on cable, “The Five.” Gutfeld, who co-hosts the show with Jesse Watters, Dana Perino, and Jeanine Pirro with Harold Ford Jr., Geraldo Rivera, and Jessica Tarlov transitioning routinely, has hit Fox stardom and become one of the network’s most recognizable faces.

The Fox late-night show averages about 358,000 viewers on average amongst the ages of 25 to 54 which makes it the fourth most viewed cable show within that demographic behind other Fox shows like “Hannity,” “Tucker Carlson Tonight,” and “The Five.”

Fox News continues to have record-breaking numbers and routinely outpaces the competition as liberal news networks attempt to catch up. “Gutfeld!” doubled the average audience for CNN’s top offering, “Anderson Cooper 360,” which only gets around 950,000 nightly viewers.

Meanwhile, MSNBC doesn’t have any offerings that come close to matching Fox’s draw. “Gutfeld!”‘s success showcases the power of producing programs that aren’t dominated by woke talking points and continual bashing of conservative values. The other networks should take a page out of Fox’s book and reconsider their approach to cable television.
