Love them or hate them, the fact remains that Fox News programming is making big ratings gains, and their late-night shows are nothing to be messed with.

There was a time when an interview with a sitting president was the show to watch. After all, who doesn’t want to hear what the leader of the free world has to say? But in the age of President Joe Biden more people would rather watch a late-night news/comedy program. That alone says a lot, but take a look at the numbers.

A week of standard programming (without hosting presidents) netted Greg Gutfeld’s eponymous show second place, with an average of 1.9M viewers, which is massive for the network. The only other Fox News show to even crack the top 10 was “Fox News @ Night” with host Shannon Bream, which averaged less than a million views.

“Tonight Show” only managed to get 1.6M average viewers in the same week.

But breaking down the numbers further, Fox News media reporter Joseph A. Wulfsohn noted that Gutfeld still had more viewers than Fallon even during his interview with Biden, which ended up being a remote affair with the president on a screen instead of in a chair.
