It used to be Bill O'Reiley's. How big has he been since he didn't have it anymore?

Tucker was always a supporting cast member, not The Star, until he landed that spot. Odds are he'll quickly take on "has been" status, with the spotlight staying on that 8pm slot no matter which meatbag is placed there.

My question is how long before the lousy tucker, files suit against Fox. After all, he was just a script reader.

My guess is he’ll stick to his radio show for the time being.

If any of the outlets could offer him a FOX size paycheck, I’m sure he’d go with them, although RT is the only outlet not being sued for the Big Lie.

BTW Hannity makes a lot more money than Tucker does because he does have a radio show.

They were smart enough to cave when Dominion first threatened to sue. And OAN probably can’t pay more than Union scale.

They are singing his praises. They booted lemon so they have an open slot to shuffle around and give him a prime time seat.

They wont pass up this chance to grab Tucker’s audience. Since being bought by right wingers they’ve been moving to the right. There ratings are crap. This is a perfect move for them. The only question is how long before they announce.

has already come calling which made Tucker agreeing to leave FOX all the easier. CNN hired him once before. He's able to play a slightly more presentable version of himself for CNN.

He will linger on with a lame podcast until he realizes that without Fox’s massive advertising budget - he’s really a no-body.
