Tucker Carlson Takes Over Top Spot At Fox News

Tucker Carlson, host of "Tucker Carlson Tonight," will lead an all-new prime time lineup on Fox News, beginning Monday.

Carlson, whose show airs live from Washington, features lively debates and bills itself as the "sworn enemy of lying, pomposity, smugness and groupthink, " will move to the key 8 p.m. ET hour, anchoring a powerful lineup on America's most-watched cable news channel.

"Hannity," with Sean Hannity, will remain in its 10 p.m. ET time slot, and "Special Report with Bret Baier" will air from 5 p.m. to 7 p.m. next week until a new show hosted by Eric Bolling takes over the 5 p.m. slot beginning April 28.

Other changes include popular debate show "The Five" moving into the 9 p.m. timeslot and Martha MacCallum's 7 p.m. ET show, "The First 100 Days," going permanent on April 28 as "The Story with Martha MacCallum."
