FOX News @ Night Shifts to New 12 AM/ET Time Slot
NEW YORK–(BUSINESS WIRE)–FOX News Channel (FNC) will debut its new late-night program, Gutfeld!, hosted by Greg Gutfeld on Monday, April 5th at 11 PM/ET. Following the ratings success of Gutfeld’s weekend primetime show, the new program will expand to five nights per week and increase the network’s original weekday programming to 21 hours per day beginning next month. Gutfeld will continue as co-host of the popular ensemble program The Five and on Saturday, March 13th, FNC will air the final weekend episode of The Greg Gutfeld Show at 10 PM/ET. A replacement Saturday evening program will be announced at a later date. Additionally, FOX News @ Night anchored by Shannon Bream will launch in its new weeknight timeslot of 12 AM/ET on April 6th.
Commenting on the launch of his new weekday late-night program, Gutfeld said, “If you cannot tell the other late night shows apart, join the club. They’re as bland as string cheese and not nearly as appetizing. It’s the same jokes, the same assumptions, probably the same writers, all reading the same columns from the same hacks in the New York Times. So we aren’t going to be like them. if you want something different, that isn’t afraid to take a risk and call out hypocrisy on all sides, check out Gutfeld! And if you don’t, no hard feelings. Although I will hate you forever.”
Gutfeld! will look at the news of the day through a satiric lens fused with pop culture and will also feature refreshing, light-hearted takes on the day’s top headlines from FNC personalities, actors, politicians, veterans and comedians, including FNC contributor Tom Shillue. Shillue, who was part of Jimmy Fallon’s barbershop quartet “The Ragtime Gals,” has also appeared in his own Comedy Central special, Late Night with Conan O’Brien, Last Comic Standing, Comics Unleashed and Broad City.
The Gutfeld! show team will also welcome comedians Joe DeVito and Joe Machi. DeVito was a semi-finalist on Last Comic Standing in 2007 and his latest digital special on Dry Bar Comedy has been viewed by millions. He has also appeared on Comedy Central, the Montreal’s Just for Laughs Festival and several late-night programs including CBS’ The Late Late Show. Machi is a writer and stand-up comedian who finished in the top five on Last Comic Standing and won New York Comedy Festival’s Funniest Comedian Competition in 2013. He has also appeared on Comedy Central and has been a frequent guest on various late-night programs.
