    Do you have 101 Dalmatian Street at 7 pm on Disney XD? Thanks.


  2. Amaury

    Good premiere for Gutfeld! Fox News at Night, in its new time, understandably went down.


    • Amaury

      And he naturally beat the competition on MSNBC. CNN, too, but Fox News at Night always beat the competition at 11 PM on CNN, anyway.


    • Russell

      I thought Gutfeld usually aired on Saturday evenings. Weekday nights is probably a better timeslot for it.


      • Amaury

        They announced a couple months ago he would be moving from his weekly Saturday program The Greg Gutfeld Show to this new program Gutfeld! every weekday. It’s something he had been interested in for a while.

        Honestly, Watters’ World, Justice with Judge Jeanine, and The Next Revolution would also make good weekday programs.


        • Rich

          Gutfeld! is just plain garbage unless you’re a far right winger who was ok with Trump inciting the insurrection. I had to check it out and lasted for a PAINFUL 30 minutes.

          The guy isn’t funny or insightful — he’s just a snarky punk throwing insults at Dems and the left. There’s no news that comes out on this mess.

          Watters and Judge Jeanine? LOLOL Don’t get me started on their heavy drinking.


          • Amaury

            It’s clear where you stand, so don’t understand why you would even watch it if you hate the channel and the aforementioned host so much. Perhaps to attack people whose political opinions differ from yours?


          • 69 Road Runner

            The guy isn’t funny or insightful — he’s just a snarky punk throwing insults at [Repubs] and the [right]

            The inverse of your statement almost perfectly describes nearly all of the established late-night “comedy” talk-show hosts!!


        • Russell

          Thanks, I didn’t know that. I liked Judge Jeanine when she had her court show but I haven’t watched her FOXNews show. I don’t think I’ve ever watched Watters because it’s on the weekends.


    • Destiny

      Good to see Jake Tapper being rewarded with good ratings for his balanced viewpoints in the news media. He’s unquestionably a centrist Democrat, but he’s one that will cover both sides of the story and doesn’t place himself from the perspective from just one side like a lot of hosts out there.

      Tucker Carlson is also doing well as usual but you generally would watch his show for his lack of political correctness lol.


      • Amaury

        Very well said. I don’t watch the CNN channel, but have seen clips on YouTube. Jake Tapper would likely be the #1 if we were ranking all of the hosts. I can stand him.


  3. Jon

    S&L premiere repeat only .03 behind Supergirl’s season 6 premiere. Wow.


  4. 69 Road Runner

    The NCAA championship was a bit of a blowout, so that wasn’t too bad of a ratings drop
