Fox News Prays New Schedule Works

Fox News announced Monday the official lineup for their primetime shows for this coming July 17th. The highly anticipated decision comes in the wake of Tucker Carlsons abrupt departure in April of this year.

The new lineup will focus on Laura Ingraham and Jesse Watters, as they are both taking over new primetime slots in Fox News lineup. Ingraham will start off the primetime lineup at 7:00 p.m. Eastern with her show The Ingraham Angle. Watters will follow at 8:00 p.m. with Jesse Watters Primetime, formerly occupied by Carlson.

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,” said Suzanne Scott, CEO of Fox News Media in a statement.

The lineup is bound to be successful, as Fox News noted that Watterss show last year­––when it was in the 7:00 p.m. ET slot––was the fastest growing cable news program, crushing the competition across the board with 2.6 million viewers and 270,000 in the 2554 demo year to date. Moreover, Watters show has held number one in its time slot since its launch,delivering the highestrated 7 PM/ET hour in cable news history.

Following Watters is Sean Hannitys show at 9:00 p.m. and Greg Gutfelds Gutfeld! to close out the night at 10:00 p.m. FOX News @ Night with Trace Gallagher will also be airing at 11:00 p.m.

Since the beginning of the year, Fox News has seen a decline in viewership; however, many are optimistic about the revival of the network with the new lineup and have their hopes high that success will follow.

The unique perspectives of Laura Ingraham, Jesse Watters, Sean Hannity, and Greg Gutfeld will ensure our viewers have access to unrivaled coverage from our bestinclass team for years to come,” Scott said.

It remains to be seen what longterm effects the new lineup will have for Fox News, but the network appears to be wellpositioned for success. As of now, Watters is the person to watch as he takes over Carlsons former 8:00 p.m. slot.
