Fox News host Tucker Carlson is moving into Bill O’Reilly’s coveted 8 p.m. time slot in the wake of O’Reilly’s departure from the network

Fox unveiled its new weeknight schedule moments after announcing O’Reilly was leaving the network in the wake of sexual harassment allegations.

Tucker Carlson Tonight” will move from its 9 p.m. spot into O’Reilly’s longtime 8 p.m. slot. “The O’Reilly Factor” has been the top-rated cable news show for the past 15 years, and the combative conservative host leaves big shoes to fill.

But Carlson has shown a knack for drawing ratings at Fox.

Originally airing at 7 p.m. when it debuted in September, “Tucker Carlson Tonight” was moved to the 9 p.m. spot after Megyn Kelly left Fox News in November. Kelly had been the second-most-watched host on cable, but Carlson bested her ratings in the time slot.

Taking over at 9 p.m. will be “The Five,” a panel show with six co-hosts: Kimberly Guilfoyle, Dana Perino, Bock Beckel, Greg Gutfeld, Jesse Watters and Juan Williams.

What a difference a month makes:

Just a few weeks ago, Tucker Carlson was interviewing Bill on his new book. Now he has taken his time slot and is replacing him. 

The move to prime time is a promotion for “The Five,” which previously aired at 5 p.m.

Fox will be filling the 5 p.m. slot with a new show hosted by Eric Bolling, a longtime O’Reilly fill-in. Bolling’s show will debut May 1, with “Special Report with Bret Baier” stretching to two hours to fill the time until then.

Fox’s announcement also noted that “The Story with Martha MacCallum” will debut on May 1 at 7 p.m. MacCallum had been in that time slot hosting “The First 100 Days,” a show centered on the beginning of President Trump’s administration. The network appears to be giving her a vote of confidence with a permanent show. source
