Fox News’ Comedy Show ‘Gutfeld!’ Debuts To 1.69 Million Viewers, Winning Time Slot Over Cable News Rivals

Greg Gutfeld’s Gutfeld!, billed as a Fox News Channel alternative to late-night comedy, debuted to 1.69 million viewers and 318,000 in the adults 25-54 demographic.

That was enough to beat its cable news rivals at 11 p.m. ET, according to Nielsen numbers released by Fox News. MSNBC’s The 11th Hour with Brian Williams had 1.21 million viewers and 183,000 in the 25-54 demo, while CNN Tonight with Don Lemon posted 678,000 and 190,000 in the 25-54 demo.

If Amway sold comedy.

Gutfeld is OK but Tucker also does funny social commentary.

by Anonymousreply 204/06/2021

Why does his show logo look like the Garfield cartoon series from the 80's.

Oh and his show is painfully unfunny. Whoever's writing that shit needs to be hung from the gallows those FOX brainwashed traitors put up outside the Capitol on 1/6

by Anonymousreply 304/06/2021

I wonder if Gutfeld will do the typical Fox thing of hiring a fake Democrat to guest star and defend liberal policies in the most wan and pathetic way possible. Like that pea brained piece of shit Bob Beckel.

It’s so bad, and yes, painful. I tuned in out of curiosity, but that’s it. I don’t know how anyone can watch this shit.

by Anonymousreply 504/06/2021

I suspect a lot of people hate watched this shit. I actually know conservatives who are not completely devoid of all humor. But somehow, set up a camera, call it a conservative humor show, and it all just completely dies, every time.

by Anonymousreply 604/06/2021

what is it about wingnuts? I mean, even though I probably agree with some of it and get it, I still know that woke culture is annoying and ridiculous as often as not. But somehow tell a wingnut to make fun of it and they will fuck it up, somehow.

I agree with him a lot of the time but don’t find him especially funny. The skits are mostly cringeworthy. Tucker though does make me laugh out loud on many occasions even though the subjects he talks about are depressing.

I'm guessing it's a variation on Carlson, as in Tucker.

The weirdest thing about this guy is that he went to Berkeley and spent 20 years as EIC of various men's magazines in the US and UK. Bizarre that he should end up on Fox.

That's because being ciswhite and cismale by definition makes you a deplorable, and loving ciswhite cismales while being one makes you twice as deplorable. In fact, nothing is more deplorable than a ciswhite cisgay.

It is the same show he has done on the weekends for years. He gets higher ratings there than all the other late night hosts but that was just once a week. We'll see if he can pull it off 5 nights a week.

He had that other really late night show Red Eye which was actually quite enjoyable.

by Anonymousreply 2404/06/2021

It's Gutfeld with and exclamation point.

Like Liza!

All the other hosts are tired and have been around forever. People probably are curious to see someone new in that timeslot.

"The 1/2 Hour News Hour" from Fox was awful, but started out pretty well too before fading away to cancelation.

He's not a Republican, he's a Libertarian. He was raised Catholic but is essentially an atheist now. He sounds very much like Bill Maher but I haven't seen Gutfeld yet, but I want to check it out.

Do you think we'll ever have a third political party? I'm progressive and would never vote for a Republican, but I'd be open to voting Libertarian.

by Anonymousreply 3004/07/2021

Has anyone watched his "comedy" show The Greg Gutfield Show on Fox News before? Holy fuck.

Most of the jokes equate to the term "woke" or the premise of "owing liberals". None of it was funny in any way. I thought it might be an interesting, informative and funny way of getting a balanced both sides view. Boy was I wrong - it was super awkward, the tiny audience made up of really old people didn't laugh, watching it was uncomfortable and stretched out. There were no decent guests booked. I gave up after a few times. I would have watched it if it was witty. But apparently he did better with it than Colbert and Kimmel according to Wikipedia.

Could you provide some examples of your position on several specific political issues? That would make it easier to understand what would make sense for you.

One of the MSNBC hosts (Chris?) tweeted the video. I didn’t know who he was and (curiously) there was no network logo on the screen, so I watched a bit. Bad. Lasted 5 minutes.

by Anonymousreply 3404/07/2021

r31 his audience wasn't all old people. He has a surprisingly strong following among young people. And they don't show the audience so I'm not sure how you could tell the age. His ratings on Saturday Night were hire than any of the late night hosts during the week.

He doesn't have celebrity guests really. He has a stock group of people that come on mostly conservative pundits and then a few stand up comics.

by Anonymousreply 3504/07/2021

So funny! 🤡

by Anonymousreply 3604/07/2021

I don't think he tries to be funny. It is more like political rants. He doesn't really tell jokes.

by Anonymousreply 3704/07/2021

I've seen several clips on Twitter now and it is really staggeringly, mesmerizingly bad. It's like a trainwreck you can't look away from.

NB that I'm not saying this because of politics - I'm pretty much a non-partisan centrist, and as open to right-wing satire as I am to left-wing satire. But this is just abysmal comedy. It's hard to believe there were any professionals involved with it.

(Gutfeld wasn't always this bad, was he? Wasn't Red Eye a decent, professional show?)

He's been on The Five five days a week for a few years now.

His rants must be popular. The advertise them like coming up later in the show Greg will have a monologue. Seems that must keep viewers watching.

Accept it. The Fox News crowd likes him.

After it had been on for six seasons, four of which she was a regular or recurring character. Three years isn't even quick anyway by any standard. The fail is yours. See also: [italic]What's Happening!![/italic] and [italic]What's Happening Now!![/italic]

You said "show," you didn't specify TV, so you're moving the goalposts. Once again, the fail is yours. See also: [italic]Oliver![/italic]

Gutfeld is not funny at all.

Rethugs are mean and when they try to be funny it's grating and they quickly alienate each other.

Humor takes intelligence and they haven't got any.

Ratings will soon collapse and no one will remember this show existed by next year.

Do we have fucking idiots on DL liking their own posts multiple times like R2 and R8 or do we sadly have more than two fucking idiots on DL?

Fox ratings remain pretty consistent. There is a huge part of their audience that just watches it all day. They were afraid to fire Bill O'Reilly for years but once he was gone and Tucker Carlson picked up right where he left off it showed that it is the network people tune in for not necessarily the hosts.
