Fox’s Greg Gutfeld is moving to weeknights: ‘The perfect next step’

Fox News just announced a big change to its weeknight prime-time lineup.

Mediaite reported Wednesday that Fox star Greg Gutfeld’s highly-rated Greg Gutfeld Show will be ditching its Saturday night timeslot and hitting the airwaves Monday through Friday at 11 p.m. ET.

According to Mediaite, the change will take place in the second quarter of 2021.

“People need a reason to laugh”

The slot Gutfeld is set to take over is currently held by Fox News @ Night host Shannon Bream. Bream is reportedly set to move to 12 p.m. to accommodate the change.

Meanwhile, Gutfeld will continue to co-host Fox’s The Five at 5 p.m. ET, Mediaite reports. Fox has yet to announce a replacement for his Saturday night program.

In a statement announcing the change, Fox News Media CEO Suzanne Scott said Gutfeld would add some much-needed comic relief to the network’s evening broadcast.

“People need a reason to laugh,” she said, according to Fox. “Greg’s unique and irreverent talk show has been an incredible success, often beating the late-night broadcast competition, despite its Saturday timeslot.”

Scott added: “With one of the most loyal and engaged audiences in cable news, we’re thrilled to bring the show to weekday primetime and further solidify Greg’s place among late-night television stars.”

“Going nightly”

In Gutfeld’s eyes, it’s “the perfect next step” for him in his career.

“This feels like the perfect next step following the amazing success of the weekend show, which is due in large part to a great staff and a management that lets the show follow its own unique path,” the Fox host said, according to Mediaite. “Every day someone comes up to me to ask when are we going nightly, so now that we are, here will be approximately 3 million people who will claim it’s their idea.”

According to The Hollywood Reporter, this move marks the second significant change to Fox News’ prime-time lineup in just the past month. In January, Fox announced that The Story with host Martha MacCallum, which airs at 7 p.m. ET, would be moving to 3 p.m. ET to make way for a new opinion show.

Gutfeld, for his part, joined Fox in 2007 and initially hosted the early-morning Red Eye program at 3 a.m. ET, The Hollywood Reporter said. He later joined The Five before launching his own show in 2015.

  1. Unfortunately, he is still on Fox. Unless he moves, I will not see him again, except in clips. I don’t watch Fox. Or any other “mainstream media.”

  3. I’m so glad that he will be on 5 nights a week. The only shows I still watch on FOX are Tucker,Hannity,Ingraham during the week. On the weekends I watch Water’s World,Judge Jeanine & Greg Gutfield!
    I stopped watching a lot of Fox after the election. FOX has changed a lot and I know they have lost of viewer’s plus they have a lot of DEMOCRATS in the payroll now!

  4. While I do not like the Fox Daytime lineup (for the most part), I do like the evening line-up. I did like Shannon Bream as well. But Carlson, Hannity, Ingram and now Gutfield is a solid lineup. Fox needs to get rid of a number of their left wingers. They are not what I or my conservative counterparts go to Fox news for and it is a reason that we left much of the Fox News Network’s programming. Clean it up and maybe you’ll get a number of your viewer back. But Fox News has a long way to go to win back their audience.

  5. I like Fox News but the LEFT WINGERS NEEDT GO ( Juan, Donna and Chris).
    This would make Fox gain more viewers in the coming months.

  6. TUCKER, HANNITY, INGRAHAM & NOW GREG…….A PERFECT LINE UP……I DO NOT WATCH THE OTHERS BECAUSE THEY ARE TOO LIBERAL FOR ME & THUS NOT LOYAL TO PRESIDENT TRUMP WHO WAS THE GREATEST PRESIDENT IN MY LIFETIME BECAUSE HE PUT AMERICANS FIRST. NOW I WEEKENDS, I ALWAYS LISTEN TO JESSIE WATTERS, JUDGE JEANNE, MARK LEVIN……SOMETIMES THE OTHERS BUT NEVER CAVUTO & WALLACE……..

    I STOPPED WATCHING MARTHA CALLUM & BRET BAIR FOR ONE REASON WHEN THEY CALLED THE ARIZONA WINNER BEFORE ALL VOTES WERE COUNTED……..AFTER THAT I KNEW THEY WERE NOT FOR TRUMP
