Greg Gutfeld is already crushing his competition with his foray into daily late night television.
Gutfeld previously hosted the “early morning” TV show Red Eye until 2015, upon which he started his own show The Greg Gutfeld Show, which aired at 11PM ET on Saturdays. This week he started Gutfeld!, which also occupies the 11PM time slot, and airs every weeknight.
The Greg Gutfeld Show already outperformed late night shows despite only airing once a week, and during its first week on the air, Gutfeld! has continued Greg’s tradition of handily outperforming his competition.
Each night this week he’s topped every other late night show except Colbert, and last night he tied Kimmel with 1,516,000 viewers.
This week the show has averaged 1.644 million viewers, more than doubling the audience of hosts such as James Corden, Seth Myers, and others. Gutfeld! is attracting nearly four times the audience of Trevor Noah’s Daily Show.
While Gutfeld is aided by the fact that his competition isn’t funny at all, these are still impressive numbers for a new show.
He’s took aim at his competition during the show’s debut episode. “As for those late night shows we’re supposed to compete against, why bother?” he asked. “Who do they offend? The only time Stephen Colbert ruffles feathers is in a pillow fight.”
