Bret Baier, Laura Ingraham, and Greg Gutfeld rounded out the top 7 places in the ratings – respectively. Maddow landed in 8th place with 1.95 million total viewers.
Gutfeld’s late-night panel show continues to surge past its competition, landing in second place behind Stephen Colbert for the month of May. While beating Colbert multiple times in May, Gutfeld’s 2 million viewer average wasn’t quite enough to surpass the CBS mainstay, but did surge Fox past ABC’s Jimmy Kimmel Live! and NBC’s The Tonight Show with Jimmy Fallon in total viewers. Gutfeld also beat Comedy Central’s The Daily Show and TBS’ Full Frontal with Samantha Bee in both total viewers and in the key younger age demographic.
CNN’s top-rated show in May was Anderson Cooper 360, which hauled in an average of 759,000 total average viewers and landed in 25th place overall. CNN fared much better in the demo, however, landing four shows in the top twenty – including Anderson Cooper 360 which ranked 17th in the demo.
