Fox News, once the No. 1 news platform, has faltered in the ratings since firing prime-time host Tucker Carlson on April 24. The Network is about to announce changes to lure back disgruntled fans and slow the ratings drop freefall, according to the Drudge Report.
According to the Daily Wire, the Fox News network will soon feature three new prime-time shows, captained by three of the network’s most popular hosts.
A source reported: “Fox News is preparing to announce an ambitious new schedule … a schedule where every hour of prime-time will [feature a different host].”
On Wednesday, the Drudge Report reported that longtime Fox News host Sean Hannity would take over Tucker Carlson’s (8 p.m. Eastern) slot, and Greg Gutfeld and Jesse Watters will each host new shows in the 9 and 10 p.m. hours, respectively.
The source reported an executive at Fox News said: “It’s our boldest and most fearless lineup ever.”
Officially, Fox News reports no final decision has been made.
“No decision has been made on a new prime-time lineup and there are multiple scenarios under consideration,” a statement from Fox News read.
Elevating Watters and Gutfeld surprises few. Since Carlson’s departure, the two have co-hosted the network’s highest-rated show, “The Five,” at 5 p.m.
In addition to his work on “The Five,” Gutfeld hosts “Gutfeld!” at 11 p.m. — a highly-rated late-night comedy show on the network.
