Celebrating the show’s unprecedented success that continues to dominate cable news, “The Five” co-hosts commemorated 11 years of live friendship and unscripted fun with on-air festivities. This is likely because of their strong common sense and right wing stance they take on politics. For example, the video below of their critical discussion about President Joe Biden:
As hosts, Dana Perino, Greg Gutfeld, Jesse Watters, Jeanine Pirro and rotating hosts Geraldo Rivera, Jessica Tarlov and Harold Ford, Jr. pulled in an average audience of 3.3 million viewers despite airing at 5 p.m. ET, “The Five” became the first non-primetime program to finish as the most-watched cable news show for three consecutive quarters last month.
The show was only supposed to have a five-week temporary run, after it first premiered in July 2011. “The Five” has emerged as one of Fox News’ highest-rated programs since then, finishing No. 1 with an average audience of over 3 million viewers, as the channel crushes CNN and MSNBC viewership. In large part due to “The Five’s” massive audience, Fox News finished as the most-watched cable news channel for the 72nd straight week.
Praising the devoted viewers for making her 11 years as a co-host an “awesome” experience, Perino quipped: “I can’t imagine, those first shows must’ve been terrible looking back.”
“One of the things I’ve always been amazed by is that they remember some of the things that happened 11 years ago, and they can tell you exactly what it was and who said it and why it made them laugh,” said Perino.
Judge Jeanine Pirro said she is grateful that the show gives her the chance to “pipe off on all the different topics of the day.”
“I love it…” she continued. “I love you all, that’s a great part of it.”
Harold Ford Jr. and his son first got hooked on the show after hearing Gutfeld’s wildly catchy jingle from his “Animals Are Great” segment, Ford Jr. said.
Too distracted by the spicy rigatoni, alla vodka and cannolis at the party, co-host Jesse Watters appeared too distracted to offer words of reflection.
Helping himself to a plate of food catered by Arthur & Sons NY Italian, a New York City restaurant, Watters joked: “I don’t want to say anything, I just want to eat.”
Among both total and primetime viewers, the network recently finished the second quarter of 2022 as cable’s most-watched network, as Americans continue to flock to Fox News.
