The newly-crowned “King of Late-Night” has officially made history…

The late-night offering by Fox News is the first cable network late-night show to beat ABC, CBS, and NBC for an entire month.

Stephen Colbert had been the undisputed Late Night King for years… until Greg Gutfeld launched his late-night talk show about a year and a half ago.

In just about 18 months, “Gutfeld!” has secured his spot as must-see TV for late-night viewers. Gutfeld is consistently winning the viewership battle over Stephen Colbert, Jimmy Fallon, and Jimmy Kimmel.

In a statement, Fox News announced that “Gutfeld!” averaged 2.19 million viewers for the month of August, edging out “The Late Show with Stephen Colbert” on CBS which had dominated the top spot since 2017.

FNC’s Gutfeld! made television history, becoming the first late-night cable program to finish the month as the most-watched late-night show in all of broadcast and cable, outpacing CBS’ The Late Show with Stephen Colbert for the month of August. This is the first time Colbert has been unseated as late-night’s highest-rated host for a full month in more than five years (January 2017).

Tommy O’Connor, a producer on the show, tweeted a thank-you to the fans.

Here is Tucker Carlson talking to Greg about the new history-making success:

Gutfeld’s show isn’t just successful because the other late-night shows have gone far to the left politically and left a vacuum, it’s also the format of his show — Gutfeld refuses to bring on the big-name celebrities to bump his numbers. Instead, he brings on his friends, they talk about the news, and they all have a laugh.

“Gutfeld!” is successful because they’re all having fun and it’s actually funny. The show is very much in the style of the late, great, Andrew Breitbart’s “happy warrior” brand of conservatism.

When speaking to Adam Corolla, Gutfeld said, “I am counting on this show succeeding without names.”

It’s working.

The big names and bigger budgets of “The Big 3” networks aren’t enough to make up for lackluster content.

The substance of “Gutfeld!” is triumphing over the shiny patina of celebrity on the other late-night shows and it’s a beautiful thing.

Psalms of War: Prayers That Literally Kick Ass is a collection, from the book of Psalms, regarding how David rolled in prayer. I bet you haven’t heard these read, prayed, or sung in church against our formidable enemies — and therein lies the Church’s problem. We’re not using the spiritual weapons God gave us to waylay the powers of darkness. It might be time to dust them off and offer ‘em up if you’re truly concerned about the state of Christ’s Church and of our nation.

Also included in this book, Psalms of War, are reproductions of the author’s original art from his Biblical Badass Series of oil paintings.

This is a great gift for the prayer warriors. Real. Raw. Relevant.
