The Writer’s Guild of America just went on strike for the first time in 15 years.

Late-night TV hosts Jimmy Kimmel, Jimmy Fallon, Stephen Colbert, and Seth Myers were forced to cancel their nightly programs until an agreement is reached.

But Big Labor bosses are furious over the announcement Greg Gutfeld made about his late-night show on Fox News Channel.

On Monday, writers in Hollywood walked off the job after the major entertainment studios failed to reach a new contract with the Writers Guild of America.

As a result, dozens of TV shows have been canceled and numerous TV series are in jeopardy.

Late-night comedy shows are taking the biggest hit from the strike.

“Hollywood writers, who could start picketing studios as early as Tuesday, are demanding more generous compensation as the streaming revolution continues to take over the industry,” Breitbart reported. “The guild has argued that the shorter seasons favored by streaming services — with most shows having ten or fewer episodes per season — have been detrimental to writers, who must find work on multiple shows to make ends meet.”

But one of the most-popular late-night shows on TV will not be fazed by the striking writers.

Fox News Channel’s Greg Gutfeld is the new king of late-night TV.

And his program will continue as normal during the strike.

“But Gutfeld! will continue as if nothing happened,” The Wrap reported. “That’s fortunate for Fox, which re-launched the late-night entrant two years ago to wild success; Gutfeld! often outpaces its broadcast late-night competitors in total viewers (though its shifted air-time and demographic frailties means it’s not a clean, apples-to-apples comparison).”

Gutfeld’s show, Gutfeld!, averaged 1.8 million total viewers in April.

This was much better than Jimmy Kimmel Live! and The Tonight Show With Jimmy Fallon.

On three occasions, Gutfeld! outperformed Late Night With Stephen Colbert in total viewers.

With his competition currently canceled due to the labor strike, Greg Gutfeld has an opportunity to boost his ratings even more and cement himself as the most-watched late-night host on TV.

Fox News executives will be grateful for any ratings boost Gutfeld can provide due to the massive drop in viewership the network suffered after firing Tucker Carlson.
