Fox News Announces Next Replacement for Tucker Carlson after Seeing Huge Drop in Ratings

Fox News has named the next replacement host for former star anchor Tucker Carlson’s timeslot.

The network has seen a massive ratings drop during the 8 pm hour since taking Carlcon off the air.

Brian Kilmeade replaced Tucker last week.

This week Lawrence Jones was picked to fill in for Tucker.

Jones, 30, anchors the “Lawrence Jones Cross Country” on Fox News on Saturday nights.

He will take over Carlson’s former 8 pm slot Monday.

Jones joined Fox News in December 2018.

His show averages around 1 million viewers and 108,000 in the key demographic.

His show airs in the 10 p.m. Saturday slot.

Jones said, “Grateful for this opportunity family.

“I’m no TC.. he carved his own lane & earned your trust.

“I can only be the LJ  you’ve allowed to grow the last 9 years on Fox.”

According to Page Six: “A media insider told us, ‘Fox News is trying out a rotating list of anchors in Tucker’s spot — this week it has been Fox & Friends’ Brian Kilmeade — but it is significant that they have chosen Jones to step up so soon after Tucker’s departure.’”
