Tuesday, Greg Gutfeld of Fox News overtook Stephen Colbert in total viewership.
“Fox News’ 11 p.m. ET Gutfeld! finally beat every other late-night show — including Stephen Colbert’s Late Show on CBS — Tuesday in total viewership and the advertiser-coveted age demographic of 25 to 54,” reports The Wrap. “When the right-leaning program debuted in April, host Greg Gutfeld and his promotional team made no secret of their ambition to overtake late-night rivals, but Colbert blocked him from the top spot.”
Tuesday night, Gutfeld! earned 2.120 million viewers, 434,000 of which were in the coveted 25 to 54 year-old demographic. Conversely, Colbert’s The Late Show pulled in an average of 1.896 million total viewers, 423,000 of which were in the key demographic. Jimmy Fallon came in third place with 1.216 million viewers and 354,000 in the demographic. Colbert, however, still dominated in the precious 18-49 demographic, earning 322,000 viewers versus Gutfeld’s 281,000.
