Fox News host Greg Gutfeld’s weekend show is drawing more viewers than some late-night hosts on the broadcast networks, including popular faces Seth Meyers and James Corden, according to Nielsen Media Research. 

Gutfeld launched his 10 p.m. Saturday show, “The Greg Gutfeld Show,” in May 2015 and is currently averaging 1.7 million viewers. That places him above NBC’s “Late Night with Seth Meyers” and CBS’s “Late Late Show with James Corden,” both averaging 1.2 million total viewers in their respective 12:30 a.m. time slots.

{mosads}Gutfeld’s numbers are noteworthy since Fridays and Saturdays are generally the least-watched nights of television.

“The Five” co-host is also delivering more than double the number of viewers of TBS’s “Full Frontal with Samantha Bee” and Comedy Central’s “Daily Show” with Trevor Noah, which are averaging 835,000 and 732,000 viewers, respectively. 

Gutfeld’s audience ranks fourth among late-night hosts, behind Stephen Colbert, Jimmy Kimmel and Jimmy Fallon.

Colbert’s “Late Show” led CBS to its first season win in the late-night talk show race in 25 years in the 18- to 54-year-old target demographic for advertisers. 

Colbert, 55, finished the season, which officially ended last Wednesday, with 3.82 million average nightly viewers, ahead of Fallon’s 2.44 million on NBC and Kimmel’s 2.04 million on ABC.

All three late-night shows lost viewers since last year, however. Colbert’s audience dropped by 2 percent, while Fallon was off by 9 percent and Kimmel was down 10 percent. 

Gutfeld’s audience saw an increase of 7 percent compared to last year.
