FOX News Media CEO Suzanne Scott revealed that Fox News Channel is set to introduce an updated primetime schedule on July 17.
The evening programming will commence with “The Ingraham Angle” featuring Laura Ingraham at 7 p.m. ET, followed by “Jesse Watters Primetime” moving to 8 p.m. ET. “Hannity” will maintain its 9 p.m. ET slot, while “Gutfeld!” will launch at 10 p.m. ET.
“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. The 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,” Scott announced.
“The Ingraham Angle” was the top-rated 10 p.m. program since on cable news since it debuted, and will now air earlier in the evening to kick-start Fox News’ primetime lineup. Ingraham, a former litigator and Supreme Court law clerk for Justice Clarence Thomas, joined FNC in 2007 as a contributor.
“Jesse Watters Primetime” launched last year and has since emerged as the fastest growing cable news program. Watters will continue to co-host “The Five,” which has been the most-watched cable news program for seven-straight quarters.
Sean Hannity, who holds the remarkable title of being the longest-running primetime cable news host ever, will continue to occupy his well-known timeslot with his self-titled show. Since its inception as a solo hour in January 2009, Hannity’s program has consistently dominated cable news ratings for an impressive 14 consecutive years.
Meanwhile, Greg Gutfeld’s late-night show “Gutfeld” has experienced a tremendous surge in popularity, culminating in its most-watched year in 2022. Since its launch in 2021, Gutfeld’s show has significantly transformed the landscape of late-night television.
In addition to his own show, Gutfeld will also maintain his role as a co-host on “The Five,” alongside Watters.
