Controversial host leaves prime-time slot following recent election reporting lawsuit
Fox News has announced the departure of its popular and controversial host, Tucker Carlson, following the settlement of a lawsuit with Dominion Voting Systems over the network’s 2020 election reporting. The decision has left a significant void in Fox News’ prime-time lineup, with the true reasons behind his exit remaining unclear.
Tucker Carlson, who became Fox News’ most popular personality after taking over Bill O’Reilly’s prime-time slot in 2016, consistently made headlines for his controversial coverage. The final episode of “Tucker Carlson Tonight” aired last Friday, with the network yet to provide an immediate explanation for his departure.

During the recently settled Dominion Voting Systems case, Carlson’s name emerged due to email and text messages, in which he privately expressed his dislike for former President Donald Trump. Despite this, he devoted an entire show to an interview with Trump just weeks ago. For now, “Fox News Tonight” will occupy Carlson’s 8 p.m. ET prime-time slot, hosted by a rotating array of network personalities.
Tucker Carlson’s exit from Fox News has left the network with the challenge of finding a new host to fill his shoes and maintain their audience’s attention. Although the recent lawsuit settlement with Dominion Voting Systems may have played a role in Carlson’s departure, the exact reasons behind the decision remain unknown. As Fox News moves forward, they will need to adapt and navigate this significant change in their prime-time lineup.
