Cable News Ratings Tuesday, November 23: Gutfeld! Tops 2 Million Viewers, Crushes Competition

 

Fox News’ late-night comedy show Gutfeld! topped 2 million total viewers on Tuesday night, crushing its time slot competition.

The Greg Gutfeld-hosted talk show also more than doubled its competition in the key 25-54 age demographic. Gutfeld! Pulled in 456,000 demo viewers compared to 135,000 for Anderson Cooper 360 and 167,000 for 11th Hour with Brian Williams.

In terms of total viewers, Anderson Cooper’s 459,000 viewers and Brian Williams’ 1.1 million viewers lagged far behind Gutfled! — which drew 2.01 million total viewers.

The 11 p.m. Gutfeld! also fared better than Fox’s daytime slate, outperforming every show on the network that aired before 5 p.m. All Fox News shows from 5 p.m. to 11 p.m. beat Gutfeld, however.

Gutfeld himself pulls down double duty at Fox News, as he also is a co-host of The Five, which regularly dukes it out with Tucker Carlson Tonight for the top spot in cable news.

Here is a full breakdown of Tuesday’s cable news ratings by show:
