Fox News cemented its new primetime lineup on Tuesday, announcing some major shuffling of its programs.
Megyn Kelly will take over Sean Hannity’s 9 p.m. timeslot with her new program, “The Kelly File.”
“Hannity” will move to 10 p.m., bumping “On the Record with Greta Van Susteren” to 7 p.m. — Shepard Smith’s old slot after it was announced he would be leaving for a larger role as Fox’s head of breaking news.
“The O’Reilly Factor” is the only show to remain untouched at 8 p.m.
7 p.m.: “On the Record with Greta Van Susteren”
8 p.m.: “The O’Reilly Factor”
9 p.m.: “The Kelly File”
10 p.m.: “Hannity”
The new schedule will debut Monday, Oct. 7, the 17th anniversary of Fox News.
“As the network continues to dominate with the top 13 programs in cable news, Fox News already redefined primetime viewing to extend well beyond the antiquated 8 to 11 p.m. format,” Fox News chief Roger Ailes said in a statement. “We’ve developed a deep bench of engaging and thought-provoking personalities that have grown with Fox News as it has evolved into the most influential and successful cable network in television. These changes will enable the network to continue setting the industry standard for years to come.”
