Major Shakeup At Fox News, Hannity To Replace Tucker Carlson And Watters And Gutfeld Make Moves Says Matt Drudge

The Drudge Report has a massive scoop and is reporting that Fox News is about to announce a major shakeup to its primetime lineup. Drudge is reporting that Sean Hannity will take over Tucker’s key timeslot at 8 p.m.

Drudge also said Fox News stars Jesse Watters and Greg Gutfeld would be heading to primetime although which timeslots Drudge did not specify.

Mediaite reported, “FOXNEWS is preparing to announce an ambitious new schedule, the DRUDGE REPORT has learned, a schedule where every hour of primetime will change!” Drudge reported. “TOP SOURCE TELLS DRUDGE: ‘IT’S OUR BOLDEST AND MOST FEARLESS LINE-UP EVER’…”

A Fox News spokesperson said, “No decision has been made on a new primetime line-up and there are multiple scenarios under consideration.”

Fox News better do something quick because they just lost to MSNBC in primetime in both total viewers and in the key 25-54 age demographic.

Carlson averaged 3.25 million in the first quarter of 2023 at 8 p.m., the same hour on Monday brought in 1.62 million total viewers.
