    Typically, premieres and finales have the highest of the ratings, but I think that applies more to non-news programs, like comedies. It’s different with news because a program premiere could be on a regular news day, and a week later there could be huge breaking news, meaning much higher ratings. However, still interesting to note that Gutfeld!’s second episode scored higher in total viewers compared to its first episode Monday night: 1.74 million versus 1.68 million.

    I’ve also come to realize that what I’ve been thinking for a while is true, which is that each program on a news network like Fox News has its own audience and generally doesn’t appear to rely on or be affected other programs. For example, notice that Tucker Carlson Tonight went down in total viewers last night, while Hannity, The Ingraham Angle, Gutfeld! and Fox News at Night all went up. Whereas series on Nickelodeon and Disney Channel generally rely on their lead-ins more, regardless of whether the lead-ins are repeats or not. A brand new Game Shakers, for example, would receive more total viewers on average as the lead-out to a brand new Henry Danger compared to airing by itself as the only brand new episode that night following a repeat of another series or itself being the lead-in, with a brand new Nicky, Ricky, Dicky & Dawn being the lead-out.


    • Amaury

      Gutfeld! has also been doing better than Fox News at Night had been doing in the 11 PM slot before it moved to 12 AM. So time slot is also probably not a large factor for ratings for news programs.


      • Bruce

        Completely untrue.

        This year on Mondays, Shannon Bream had been averaging 2.265 M viewers. Gutfeld’s premiere has 11 PM down 25.78%.

        This year on Tuesdays, Shannon Bream had been averaging 2.394 M viewers, which is higher than Mondays. Gutfeld’s second show has 11 PM down 27.52%. You’re just making things up.


        • Amaury

          The one appearing to be making things up here is you. Fox News at Night this year, in the 11 PM slot, only averaged 1.31 million total viewers on Mondays and 1.77 million total viewers on Tuesdays.

          Overall, though, Fox News at Night averaged 1.51 million total viewers in January, 1.22 million total viewers in both February and March, and 1.12 million total viewers for the two showings it had in April at 11 PM. The average for 2021 in the 11 PM slot is 1.31 million total viewers. In the three showings Gutfeld! has had so far this week, its average total viewers is 1.64 million total viewers.

          1.64 million is, of course, higher than 1.31 million, so I have no idea what you’re talking about.

          I just spent over the last hour compiling this spreadsheet: https://docs.google.com/spreadsheets/d/1F3pE38jCbRYD3qz1-IO-HKgmKg-ulfBH65xygVmGt0g/edit?usp=sharing

          All of the data is from right here on Showbuzz Daily itself.

    Whew, The Flash just barely clung to that 0.3!

    Pretty strong night for the CBS crime dramas….

    Nice and steady Flash

    Impressive for the CBS crime shows.
