Sorry, Trish Regan. Fox News has announced Tucker Carlson will instead fill Megyn Kelly's 9pm time slot following her move to NBC, a selection that leaves the network without a female prime-time host. Carlson only just got his own weeknight show airing at 7pm but Tucker Carlson Tonight nabbed 3.7 million viewers in its first night and has already made headlines, per Business Insider. "In less than two months, Tucker has taken cable news by storm," says Rupert Murdoch. "Viewers have overwhelmingly responded to the show." His old time slot will be temporarily filled by Martha MacCallum anchoring a program on Donald Trump's first 100 days in office, per Politico. (More Fox News stories.)
