Tucker Carlson was ratings gold at Fox News, but ratings continue to tank since his ouster at the network, even being beaten by far-left MSNBC in some metrics as conservatives flee to other networks, such as Newsmax.
Fox News is now being forced to move its entire lineup around to try and revamp its ratings.
The Hill reports, “Jesse Watters’s 7 p.m. program will move to 8 p.m. and take the slot previously held by former host Tucker Carlson, while Laura Ingraham will have her program moved into Watters’s 7 p.m. hour.”
“Longtime host Sean Hannity’s show will remain at 9 p.m., and late-night host and comedian Greg Gutfeld will host a show at 10 p.m.”
According to the report, the changes will take effect on July 17, 2023.
Fox News Media CEO Suzanne Scott said, “[T]he 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.”
Tucker Carlson has revamped a version of his show on Twitter, with ten-minute segments that have reached millions of impressions each — to the chagrin of Fox News, which is threatening to sue to former network anchor for a supposed breach of contract.
