Laura Ingraham on ‘Inside Track’ to Replace Tucker Carlson on Fox

A report citing internal sources at Fox News is claiming to know which current network star has the “inside track” to take over Tucker Carlson’s primetime slot.

The ratings have tanked in this slot since Fox fired Tucker.

And the ratings have tanked across the entire primetime lineup since the firing so Fox needs to choose wisely.

Cable news ratings show that in the two weeks since Tucker was fired, figures for Carlson’s former spot have dropped by around 50 percent.

Meanwhile, the network’s audience among 25- to 54-year-olds had shrunk by two-thirds.

Two sources with the cable news network who spoke to the outlet 19FortyFive said that Laura Ingraham is likely to replace Carlson at 8 pm EDT.

Ingraham hosts a show at 10 pm EDT so that slot would open up.

According to 19FortyFive: “While Ingraham seems, at least for now, the leading candidate to fill 8 pm, there are other options.

“Sean Hannity could also make a move into the prime 8 pm slot and would be a major contender for the spot, although he seems very comfortable at 9 pm.

“It is also possible that Jessie Watters could relocate from 7 pm to 8 pm – with an hour of news coming after Special Report with Brett Baier.

“A long shot would be to move the popular 6 pm news program to 7 pm and move around more talent and shows.

“There is always also the possibility that Shannon Bream, who has filled in for Baier and is now the host of Fox News Sunday, could get the 7 pm or 10 pm slot in such a shuffle of in-house talent and make more moves.

“Regardless, for now, according to sources at Fox, Laura Ingraham is in the top position to be the face of Fox News nighttime opinion.”

Whoever they pick for the slot, they will have to compete with Carlson directly.

As Slay News reported last night, Carlson dropped a bombshell and said he will re-launch his show on Twitter.


In under 24 hours, Carlson’s Twitter video has been viewed over 22 million times, massively dwarfing any audience on any cable news network.

As the exit negotiations take a nasty turn with Fox corporate, Tucker will not do his old network any favors.

And Elon Musk has big plans to help Carlson dominate and send a message to the Murdochs.
