In the wake of Bill O’Reilly’s ouster, Fox News Channel issued a talking points memo of its own: Its primetime lineup will maintain a similar tone and attitude even without the person who was arguably the network’s most recognizable anchor in place.
Tucker Carlson, who has held forth in primetime at 9 p.m. and delivered solid ratings, will move to O’Reilly’s 8 p.m. slot starting Monday, April 24. Fox News will fill Carlson’s former berth with its panel show, “The Five,” which will be co-anchored by Kimberly Guilfoyle, Dana Perino, Bob Beckel, Greg Gutfeld, Jesse Watters and Juan Williams will Sean Hannity will remain at 10 p.m.
Well, Bill O’Reilly is officially ousted from his Fox News spot that he held for over two decades because he couldn’t stop slapping asses and creepily giving back rubs to all the random and unidentifiable blonde women that prance around the Fox News studios.
Enter Tucker Carlson, another pale unassuming old white man to fill his shoes. Ah, I’m glad television is still giving opportunities to the same people who are given nonstop opportunities. It would be outlandish if they stepped outside of their comfort zone and hired someone who didn’t fit the TV stencil.
Also, shout out to Bill O’Reilly for sexually harassing chicks and ending up walking away with tens of millions of dollars from his contract. Poor guy.
Thanks for reading. Tweet to @TheLesterLee if you think Bill O’Reilly will be back on television by dinner time tomorrow. Also, go ahead and throw Deadseriousness a Like on Facebook so that I can keep the lights on around here at HQ.
