The left claims to be the vast majority of voters and the most popular political group in the United States, without any evidence that their claims are true. The evidence seen by truthful analysts actually shows that the radical left and their ideas are not at all popular with the American people- and here is a huge indicator of what people really do want to hear about. Note- that it is not anything coming from CNN.
While Fox News has struggled with viewership after the 2020 Election, they still soar in popularity compared with the lapdog media programming on cable news- according to ratings.
For example, a popular Fox News show “The Five” continues to dominate cable ratings and remains the most-watched show on the network.
Newly released data found that “The Five” had the most total viewers and the second most viewers in the coveted 25-54 age demo.
Greg Gutfeld, a highly popular show host said recently that ‘The Five’ Dominate Ratings as CNN Continues To Fall Off A Cliff.
AdWeek published the viewership results for cable news shows and “The Five” and host Greg Gutfeld dominated.
“On the cable news programming front, Fox News’ The Five was the most-watched show of the week (3.08 million at 5 p.m.) and the second-most-watched among adults 25-54 (433,000) at 8 p.m. Tucker Carlson Tonight came in second in total viewers (3.05 million at 8 p.m.) and No. 1 among adults 25-54 (483,000). Hannity took No. 3 in total viewers (2.62 million at 9 p.m.) followed by Jesse Watters Primetime at No. 4 (2.54 million at 7 p.m.), and Special Report with Bret Baier at No. 5 (2.245 million viewers at 6 p.m.). Fox News as a network secured the top 18 cable news telecasts for the week among adults 25-54,” AdWeek reported.
“CNN’s ratings have fallen off a cliff,” Martin Walsh reported for Conservative Brief.
“CNN posted its lowest day in ratings since July 2020,” Walsh reported.
“CNN capped off a weak week in the ratings on Friday, dipping to the network’s lowest Friday in the key 25-54 age demographic since July 14th, 2000. CNN brought in a total day average of 60,000 demo viewers, just higher than the network’s 59,000 demo viewers in July 2000,” Mediaite reported.
Gutfeld, who also co-hosts “The Five,” also has his own late-night show that is dominating cable news ratings.
Gutfeld’s 11 p.m. show on Fox News landed second in all of cable news in the main 25-54 demographic last week, beating out The Ingraham Angle (with guest host Jason Chaffetz) and “The Five,” which he co-hosts.
Gutfeld’s show drew a whopping 2.02 million total viewers, which beat out Ingraham’s show at 1.9 million. Gutfeld! fell just short of beating “The Five,” which drew 2.92 million total viewers.
In May, “The Five” was the most-watched show on cable news in both total audience and among the key 25-54 age demographic.
The show averaged nearly 3.28 million total viewers in the 5 p.m. hour during May 2022.
Gutfeld is part of two shows — The Five and Gutfeld! — that was one of the most-watched cable news shows in May.

As noted by Forbes, Gutfeld’s weekend late-night show has been delivering massive viewership.
Like the way CNN is all but guaranteed to remain a favorite punching bag for Fox News Channel’s late-night host Greg Gutfeld, whose 11 pm show “Gutfeld!” has been a rating powerhouse since its launch a little over a year ago now. Monday, by the way, was an important day for Gutfeld as well, marking the debut of a newer, expanded studio for his show — the second-most-watched late-night program in all of broadcast and cable.
In fact, you could argue that at least some of Gutfeld’s success (an average of almost 2 million viewers in April alone, topping Jimmy Kimmel and Jimmy Fallon) is best understood within the context of missteps and ratings decline at CNN. To say nothing of the ideological like-mindedness across most of the late-night landscape.
“If you’ve been watching my stuff, I spend a lot of time talking about media. Because I know the internal flaws of it. The Gutfeld show became successful because it came at exactly the right time.” he said. “People have had it with being told that every institution in your life is somehow oppressor vs. oppressed.”
“My show is deliberately surreal and absurd because I’m absurd. I call it the Dean Wormer effect. Dean Wormer was the bad guy in Animal House and was always kind of the hood ornament of what a Republican was, and everybody else has fun, right? … My goal was always to flip that. So that we’re the people having fun, and the left, Democrats, are the scolds. You see that now, with even Bill Maher saying, my God, my side is humorless and the other side is having fun.”
Popular host Tucker Carlson’s primetime show on Fox News smashed another key barrier earlier this year.
Anchor Sean Hannity also recently became the longest-running prime-time cable news host.
