Gutfeld: “We are the most unlike any show around, and it’s because we’re unprofessional;”
Buried in the depths of the early morning 3 a.m. hour lies a Fox News show that is consistently besting shows on competing networks in daytime and even primetime timeslots in the choice 25-54 demographic.
“Red Eye with Greg Gutfeld” finished September ranked 21 out of all cable news shows in the prime 25-54 demo — above CNN’s flagship primetime show “Piers Morgan Live” and well above the channel’s much-hyped Zucker era offerings. It steadily beats plenty of MSNBC shows, too.
Meanwhile, since the show launched in February 2007, Gutfeld has become possibly the hardest-working man at Fox News, between “Red Eye,” “The Five” and occasionally segments on or substitute hosting gigs for “The O’Reilly Factor.”
What’s the secret of the show’s success? TheWrap sat down with Gutfeld and his co-hosts Bill Schulz and Andy Levy just before a taping to find out.
