It may not be too surprising that Fallon is losing the ratings game. Especially when looking at some of the “comedy” he has been doling out to viewers of late. For instance, Fallon was brutally mocked this week for his “cringy” COVID song and dance number:
They wonder why they’re losing audience…https://t.co/gBCWe8ZezA— Beto Silva 🇧🇷 (@elbetosan) January 8, 2023

Even Elon Musk took a shot at Fallon after a false rumor that “The Tonight Show” host had died hit Twitter. When Fallon asked Musk to “fix” the rumors of his death, Musk joked, “Fix what?” Then there are the important demos. Gutfeld’s show is also leading in adults 25-54, one of the most important demographic groups for advertisers. One reason for his success is that he is not following the pack down well-trod paths. Gutfeld said his show is different by design. “People have had it with being told that every institution in your life is somehow oppressor vs. oppressed. The thing we did was we said we’re no different than you are. We’re looking at this stuff with a jaundiced eye. We get it. We’re on your side. So, I think it’s a combination of we’re entertainment, and we’re not homework,” he told Forbes. Gutfeld said his show crosses boundaries because he has little regard for the old ideas. The Fox comedian is so right, too. People really are sick and tired of the biased, left-wing hacks pretending to be late-night comedians. Their shows are not funny or inventive. And Gutfeld’s audience is soaring as a result. This article appeared originally on The Western Journal.
