Fox News has cemented a lethal new prime-time lineup with the addition of fan favorite Laura Ingraham to the 10 pm slot.
Ingraham, a radio host, attorney and author, will launch her own TV show at 10 pm called “The Ingraham Angle,” while Sean Hannity will move to 9 pm.
Ratings kingpin Tucker Carlson — whose show crushes his cable news competition at the 8 pm hour — will remain in his time slot.
Meanwhile, the popular talk show “The Five” will return to it old 5 pm slot now that the “Fox News Specialists” got canceled after Eric Bolling was fired.
Laura Ingraham’s new show debuts October 30. She has legions of loyal fans who have long wanted her to have her own show. The gorgeous 54-year-old blonde is a longtime FNC contributor who recently drew positive audience response after filling in for Tucker Carlson.
Ingraham electrified audiences in July 2016, when she spoke at the Republican National Convention. “I don’t want to sit around and tell my kids stories about how great America used to be,” the mom of 3 said. “We never give up. We rise to challenges. We fight and we win. We’re Americans.”
Ingraham joins a powerful new lineup that will undoubtedly help maintain FNC’s standing as the No. 1 cable news network in the world. Fox News struggled during the past year, which was marred by the ouster and death of FNC founder Roger Ailes and the firing of ratings superstar Bill O’Reilly.
Until recently, FNC won every hour of the day, easily destroying its cable news rivals CNN and MSNBC. After O’Reilly was booted, MSNBC caught up a bit, but its ratings still lag behind Fox. Like a phoenix rising from the ashes, Fox News has reinvented itself once again to remain the big dog in town.
