The jealousy just oozed out of The Daily Show creator, Lizz Winstead, when SiriusXM host Dean Obeidallah brought up the fact, albeit in a rather mocking way, that a new Super Bowl ad features Fox News Greg Gutfeld as the new “King of Late Night.” Rather than be even the slightest bit gracious over the very true fact that Gutfeld leads in the late-night ratings for comedy, Winstead let loose with a barrage of very angry profanity.
DEAN OBEIDALLAH: And now Gutfeld’s ratings, he could have a Super Bowl ad. I’m not kidding. Super Bowl Sunday touting him. Fox News is running “King of Late Night” Greg Gutfeld dressed like a king and technically he starts at 11 PM Eastern Time, it’s half an hour earlier but he beat Colbert, Fallon, and Kimmel now consistently in the ratings. I don’t think it’s a fair comparison. I don’t know one comic going “I hope I get on Gutfeld!”
…Lizz, you created The Daily Show. Is Greg Gutfeld’s bullshit considered late night comedy show?
Okay, Obedeillah was mocking Gutfeld but at least he wasn’t angry. That’s in stark contrast to the profanely bitter (and obviously jealous) Lizz Winstead:
