Greg Gutfeld Signs Multi-Year Contract Extension With Fox News

One of the most popular personalities in TV news and increasingly in late night will remain at Fox News Media going forward.

Greg Gutfeld has signed a multi-year contract extension with Fox News, where he will remain as host of Fox News Channel’s 10 p.m. late-night style show, Gutfeld! He’ll also continue to serve as co-host of the news talk ensemble show The Five, cable news’ most-watched program. As part of his new deal, Gutfeld will also host and produce Fox Nation programming from time to time.

“Greg is a true original whose trademark political and cultural commentary, humor and gifted writing has deeply connected and grown with our audience for more than 17 years,” Fox News CEO Suzanne Scott said in a statement.

“Since joining the network in 2007, Fox News has given me the freedom to be unabashedly myself and, in turn, deliver a distinct experience for our audience,” Gutfeld added. “There aren’t many platforms that allow this type of creative independence and I’m proud to be a part of Suzanne’s team.”

Airing on Fox News Channel weekdays from 10-11 p.m. ET, Gutfeld! averaged more total live-plus-same-day viewers than any other late-night show in Q1 ’24 (2,174,000), per Nielsen data. (Gutfeld! drops to No. 2 behind CBS’ The Late Show with Stephen Colbert when Nielsen live-plus-three data is considered.) Gutfeld! also averaged more Adults 25-54 and 18-49 in Q1 than late-night shows ABC’s Jimmy Kimmel Live!, NBC’s Late Night with Seth Meyers and Comedy Central’s The Daily Show.

Additionally, for the first quarter of 2024, Gutfeld! was the No. 1 cable news show in the key 25-54 demo for the first time in the program’s history. It also happens to be celebrating its third anniversary on Fox News Channel this coming Friday.

Gutfeld also serves as co-host of cable news’ most-watched show, The Five, which averaged 3,038,000 live-plus-same-day total viewers in Q1 ’24, and has topped all programs on cable news for 10 consecutive quarters. Gutfeld co-hosts The Five with Harold Ford Jr., Dana Perino, Jeanine Pirro, Jessica Tarlov and Jesse Watters. The news talk ensemble show debuted in 2011.

Previously, Gutfeld was the host of The Greg Gutfeld Show (2015-2021), which aired Saturday nights on Fox News. Prior to that, he helmed the network’s overnight program Red Eye.

    The truth is he is the pure form of entertainment that is one TV. Back in the day before Letterman got political if you appeared on his show the #1 thing you could not do is be serious and if you did Dave would destroy you.

    I see a similarity in the Gutfeld Show and Late Night. Yes, most of Greg’s humor is based around the obscurity of society today which usually means something the Democrats support. But he will also point out the craziness of the Republicans too.

    People have had long days and back when the Tonight Show was worth watching Johnny would make fun of everybody. Your name, status and political affiliation meant nothing to him, and people watched. That is what viewers are looking for in late night. The networks do not provide this, but little Greg delivers it every day and that is why more people watch him than any of the network shows.
