Fox News will launch its new Tucker Carlson Tonight series on Nov. 14, the network said Thursday.
The series will feature the veteran Fox News political contributor as he tackles issues largely uncovered by the mainstream media, said network officials. Carlson joined Fox News in 2009 after stints at MSNBC and CNN.
The series replaces On The Record With Brit Hume, which launched in September after Hume took over the show for the departed Grata Van Susteren.
The announcement comes on the heels of Fox News’ highly rated election night and post election coverage. The network delivered 7.8 million viewers for Hillary Clinton’s concession speech Wednesday during the 11 am to noon time period, and 5.9 million viewers in primetime, besting all cable news networks, according to Nielsen.
