Greg Gutfeld continues to dominate the ratings as his hit Fox News show remains the king of late-night.

“Gutfeld!” beat all broadcast and cable late-night programs in viewers during November.

In November, Gutfeld’s show even beat “woke” host Stephen Colbert’s “The Late Show” on CBS in the advertiser-coveted 25-54 age demographic for the first time.

Additionally, “Gutfeld!” saw its best month since the show launched.

“Gutfeld!” delivered its highest-rated month since launch in total viewers and in the key 25-54 age demo, topping all of late-night television across the board in viewers with 2,322,000 viewers.

Greg Gutfeld also beat Colbert in the younger 25-54 age demographic for the full month for the first time with 397,000.

Gutfeld made a full sweep of his rivals, beating Jimmy Kimmel, Colbert, and Jimmy Fallon in total viewers for the month.

During the month of November, “Gutfeld!” bested “The Late Show with Stephen Colbert” (2,134,000 P2+; 375,000 A25-54), ABC’s “Jimmy Kimmel Live!” (1,395,000 P2+; 309,000 A25-54) and NBC’s “The Tonight Show with Jimmy Fallon” (1,524,000 P2+; 434,000 A25-54) in total viewers.

Airing at 11 PM/ET, the program topped every show on CNN and MSNBC, in both viewers and A25-54.

But Gutfeld was just getting started because he is also the host of another hit show, “The Five.”
