Fox News is going to shake up its news schedule to make way for Laura Ingraham’s Trump enthusiast show, according to CNN sources.
Her new show will be part of a broader change to the network’s top-rated prime time lineup. Sean Hannity’s show, currently at 10 p.m., will move one hour earlier to 9 p.m., multiple sources confirmed.
And “The Five,” a talk show originally named for its 5 p.m. time slot, will shift from 9 p.m. back to its namesake hour.
The changes come on the heels of Eric Bolling’s exit from Fox and the cancellation of his 5 p.m. show “Fox News Specialists” last Friday.
Fox is temporarily replacing the “Specialists” with news programming. But “The Five” will move back to 5 p.m. in the coming weeks, the sources said.
Well it appears that Fox News is trying to head off Steve Bannon at the Trumpy pass and move into the cheerleader territory with this move. I have very little hope that Ingraham’s show will be anything different than Tucker Carlson’s with a much more shrill voice….
