    Fox News Announces Next Replacement for Tucker Carlson

    Published on

    This week, Fox News has announced who will replace Tucker Carlson at 8 p.m. ET.

    This week, Will Cain, co-host of “Fox & Friends Weekend,” will take over the time slot, according to a new report. The show is presently titled “Fox News Tonight” since Tucker Carlson was fired from the network last month.

    “Cain is the fourth host to hold down the fort while Fox News searches for a permanent replacement for Carlson, who was booted along with ratings juggernaut Tucker Carlson Tonight last month in the wake of Fox’s legal settlement with Dominion Voting Systems. Brian Kilmeade was the first in rotation, followed by Lawrence Jones and Kayleigh McEnany (who wrapped her turn this week),” The Wrap reported.

    “Cain shares Fox & Friends Weekend hosting duties with Rachel Campos-Duffy and Pete Hegseth on Saturdays and Sundays from 6 a.m.-10 a.m., and brings a strong sports background as a former ESPN contributor; his Fox News Audio show The Will Cain Podcast is a fusion of politics and sports,” the outlet added. “On Sundays in particular, Fox & Friends Weekend leads the cable-news pack, averaging over a million viewers and outdrawing CNN and MSNBC in the 25-54 demo through the first quarter. Cain normally commutes from his Texas home to do Fox & Friends Weekend, though it looks like he’ll be in the Big Apple for all of next week.”

    The network’s potential replacement for Carlson’s time slot is the subject of persistent rumors.

    Who Will Replace Tucker Carlson at Fox News? ” was the title of a report by Mediaite. Here Are Mediaite’s Top Picks,” in which staff members compiled a roster of prospective hosts who could fill Carlson’s coveted 8 PM time slot.

    In its report, Mediaite suggested that Fox News could simply switch Watters, Ingraham, and Hannity to the 8 p.m. time slot and tryout a new host in a later time slot. Thus, a more experienced host would merely assume Carlson’s position on the network.

    In the event that Fox News retains the primetime hosts in their current time slots, Mediaite has suggested the following six candidates to replace Tucker Carlson:

    Greg Gutfeld — who hosts “The Five” and his late-night comedy show “Gutfeld!”

    Tulsi Gabbard — a former Democratic lawmaker and 2020 presidential candidate

    Kayleigh McEnany — former press secretary in the Trump administration

    Brian Kilmeade — a longtime host and figure at Fox News

    Pete Hegseth — a co-host and contributor at Fox News

    Jesse Watters — who hosts “The Five” and his own primetime show

    Time will tell what Fox News decides to do, but the dismissal of Tucker Carlson sparked a social media firestorm this week.

    On Monday, Carlson received a phone call from CEO Suzanne Scott informing him that he had been dismissed. According to reports, Carlson was “blindsided” by the news.
