BREAKING: Fox News Pulls the Trigger

( – BREAKING NOW: Just moments ago, Fox News announced that Jesse Watters will be the full-time replacement for Tucker Carlson.

Specifically, Fox News announced:

Fox News Channel will debut a new primetime lineup on July 17, FOX News Media CEO Suzanne Scott announced on Monday. 

“The Ingraham Angle” with Laura Ingraham will kick things off at 7 p.m. ET, followed by “Jesse Watters Primetime” shifting to 8 p.m. ET, “Hannity” will remain at 9 p.m. ET and “Gutfeld!” will begin at 10 p.m. ET. 

FOX News Channel has been America’s destination for news and analysis for more than 21 years and we are thrilled to debut a new lineup. The unique perspectives of Laura Ingraham, Jesse Watters, Sean Hannity, and Greg Gutfeld will ensure our viewers have access to unrivaled coverage from our best-in-class team for years to come,” Scott announced.

As for Watters, Fox added:

“Jesse Watters Primetime” launched last year and has since emerged as the fastest growing cable news program. Watters will continue to co-host “The Five,” which has been the most-watched cable news program for seven-straight quarters. 

“With Watters’ fresh take on the major headlines of the day along with news-making interviews, “Jesse Watters Primetime” has been No. 1 in its timeslot for the 18 months. It has been the highest-rated 7 p.m. program in cable news history since it launched.

It remains to be seen if Watters can bring in anywhere near the number of viewers and ratings that Tucker Carlson did before Fox fired him.
