The terms of Gutfeld’s deal were not disclosed. Fox News would only confirm that Gutfeld will continue to host late-night series Gutfeld! and co-host daytime program The Five.

“Greg is a true original whose trademark political and cultural commentary, humor and gifted writing has deeply connected and grown with our audience for more than 17 years,” Fox News Media CEO Suzanne Scott said in a statement. “Upon launching Gutfeld! three years ago, he rapidly disrupted the status quo to become the most-watched host in the genre with more viewers tuning in to his show than any other late-night program on television. We are proud to be the home of Greg, his unparalleled analysis and late-night’s highest-rated program for many years to come.”

Added Gutfeld: “Since joining the network in 2007, Fox News has given me the freedom to be unabashedly myself and, in turn, deliver a distinct experience for our audience. There aren’t many platforms that allow this type of creative independence and I’m proud to be a part of Suzanne’s team.”

Gutfeld! — which will mark its third anniversary during its Friday, April 5 broadcast — features regular panelists George “Tyrus” Murdoch and Kat Timpf “offering their no-holds-barred takes on the news of the day, accompanied by skits and analysis with a satirical twist,” according to Fox News.

Though the network refers to Gutfeld as a “late-night sensation,” the series, which got its start in the 11 pm hour, now airs at 10 pm ET/7 pm PT — ergo, it no longer has to compete with the likes of ABC’s Jimmy Kimmel Live!, CBS’ The Late Show With Stephen Colbert, Comedy Central’s The Daily Show or NBC’s The Tonight Show Starring Jimmy Fallon.
