Fox News host Greg Gutfeld mocked CNN over its search for a comedy host – saying the network already is a joke.
Gutfeld claimed the ‘smashing success’ of his own late-night Fox show had forced CNN to look for ‘a hit comedy show of their own.’
Bosses at the famously progressive news network have reportedly floated names such as Bill Maher, Trevor Noah and Jon Stewart to offer a satirical take on the news – and compete with rival Fox’s Gutfeld!.
The Fox show last year drew a ratings average of 2.15m viewers – trumping vehement progressives such as James Corden and Stephen Colbert, who have seen ratings fall drastically in recent years.
Gutfeld joked that no shake-up was needed at CNN because it had already provided cable news with the ‘golden age of comedy.’
