Gutfeld-Guts humorless Cable Rivals On The Left -Debuts To 1.69 Million Viewers!

Greg Gutfeld’s Gutfeld!, debuted on FOX on Monday to 1.69 million viewers and 318,000 in the adults 25-54 demographic.

Gutfeld! debut surpassed its cable news rivals at 11 p.m. ET, according to Nielsen numbers released by Fox News. MSNBC’s The 11th Hour with Brian Williams had 1.21 million viewers and 183,000 in the 25-54 demo, while CNN Tonight with Don Lemon posted 678,000 and 190,000 in the 25-54 demo.

Gutfeld! debut topped the year-to-date average of other late-night shows – The Tonight Show with Jimmy Fallon and Jimmy Kimmel Live!

If you have not watched Greg Gutfeld on Red EyeThe Five, and Greg Gutfeld Show, you missed the most impressive comedy in recent TV history. Here is a sample of what political satire should be.

In contrast, here is a sample of cruel and unusual punishment that you know as modern American comedy.

Conan O’Brien: “Donald Trump is polling so badly with women that at a rally last night, he had his wife, Melania, introduce him. Because if there’s one thing that’s guaranteed to get American women on your side, it’s a foreign model who’s married to a billionaire and never has to work.”

Conan O’Brien:  “After losing in Wisconsin, there has been a big shake-up in the Trump campaign staff. In fact, the guy in charge of racist comments is now in charge of sexist comments.” 

Conan O’Brien: “Donald Trump continues to baffle and astound. A new study found that Donald Trump’s speeches are at a fifth- grade level. In other words, he’s speaking two grades above his supporters right now.”

Seth Meyers: “Donald Trump was in Washington, D.C., today to meet privately with members of his newly established foreign policy team. They went over key points like, ‘This one’s Europe,’ and ‘No, no, no, THIS one’s Europe.'”

Trevor Noah: “I think, Donald Trump is trying to deport Melania.” 

Trevor Noah: “Donald Trump wants to bang his daughter.”

Trevor Noah: “Sorry OJ, you had a good run but Trump got acquitted twice, and he’s responsible for more deaths.”  

Sarah Silverman: “I learned that people in wheelchairs are allowed to have marathons…which, to me, seems like cheating, but what are you gonna say?”

Sarah Silverman: “The Holocaust would never have happened if black people lived in Germany in the 1930s and 40s…well, it wouldn’t have happened to Jews.” 

Perhaps Jimmy Kimmel may be the least funny and most vile offender of them all. The examples are too long to list, read here, here, and here.

There is one virtue that the liberals do not possess: a sense of humor. They cannot make people laugh if their life depended on it. Air America could attest to it if it was still alive.

Congratulations Greg Gutfeld on the new show! Show them how it’s done!

Tatyana Larina comes from my favorite work of poetry.  And that's the only time you'll see me quoting Wikipedia as a source.

I came to the US in 1991, lived in San Francisco for 5 years, and I have a Computer Science degree.  I worked in software industry for several years, later switching to a career of a full time mom, and I never looked back.

In my younger days, I wasn’t a conservative. That is not to say that I was ever a liberal – I was not anything at all. I had no idea that there were such concepts as “conservative” and “liberal”. I did not pay attention to politics at all, and the most political knowledge you would get out of me would be who the US President was, and even for that you had to catch me on the right day.
My first introduction to politics was during the second Israeli intifada in 2002. Unspeakable violence erupted in Israel. Every day dozens of people were killed. Even though I didn’t follow politics, that deeply affected me. I felt sad, frustrated, and powerless. And one night, I happened to stumble on an MSNBC program called “Alan Keyes is making sense.” He was talking passionately about Israel and the violence, and he addressed my feelings very well.  Since that evening, I turned on Alan Keyes every night, and by his commentary he was able to take away some of the frustration and anger that I had. It was like a nightly therapy session.
Feeling intrigued after watching Alan Keyes, I wondered what else MSNBC had in store. I switched through the channels, and low and behold, I found Scarborough Country. Right off, Joe Scarborough wasn’t what he is today at all. He was a solid conservative (as I now understand), making common sense conservative points. I found him interesting and engaging. Opposing liberalism had not entered my mind at that time. I still didn’t know anything about liberalism. It was just the things he said sounded very common sense and worthwhile to me. Imagine that at some point, MSNBC had a conservative host on the air. Crazy times, ha?
Exploring my new political universe, I switched through more channels, and one night I found FOX. O’Reilly Factor was on. From the very first night, I was hooked. I abandoned Scarborough. O’Reilly was not just common sense – he was aggressive, and he was a fighter. He was Scarborough on steroids. He wasn’t just talking – he was taking on what he thought to be wrong and unjust. Ever since the first time, and until untimely end of Bill’s FOX career, I don’t think I ever missed one Factor.
For forming my political views, and my ability to formulate them, I have to give special credit to three people: Charles Krauthammer, Bill O’Reilly, and Greg Guttfeld.  To Charles - philosophy.  To Bill - realistic and pragmatic approach to politics.  To Greg - realization that a good joke will change more minds than a long lecture.
And for everything else, thanks to my family.
