Fox News announces Jesse Watters will be the permanent new 8PM host, filling Tucker Carlson's time slot
· Jun 26, 2023 ·

After unceremoniously dumping Tucker Carlson more than two months ago, Fox News has been struggling with the ratings department as the network has failed to find a permanent replacement for Tucker.

However, Fox has finally made the official change and is giving host Jesse Watters the full-time job as the 8 o'clock primetime host on Fox.

Watters will take the helm of the time slot previously helmed by Bill O'Reilly and Carlson starting today.

Jesse Watters will be the new host of Fox News's 8 p.m. hour, replacing ousted star anchor Tucker Carlson, one of several prime-time changes the network announced on Monday.

Laura Ingraham will shift earlier in the evening to the 7 p.m. hour, while late-night host Greg Gutfeld will move up an hour to 10 p.m., Fox News said.

Perhaps the stability in programming can help Fox right the ship.

But I doubt it.
