Fox News announces new primetime lineup after ousting Bill O'Reilly

Bill O'Reilly has blamed his sacking from Fox News on "completely unfounded claims" that have been levelled against him.

Fox has lost multiple stars and executives in the previous year.

Fox News Channel says "Tucker Carlson Tonight" will begin airing an hour earlier to fill the time slot vacated by Bill O'Reilly, who lost his job Wednesday after allegations that he sexually harassed women.

"The O'Reilly Factor" reportedly brought Fox more than $178 million in ad dollars in 2015 and $118.6 million in the first nine months of 2016.

NEW YORK (AP) - With its biggest star departing in another blowup over sexual harassment, Fox News faces some big challenges.

"After a thorough and careful review of the allegations, the company and Bill O'Reilly have agreed that Bill O'Reilly will not be returning to the Fox News Channel", the company said in a statement.

O'Reilly has been the subject of a media firestorm over the past few weeks, after a New York Times investigation found that O'Reilly and Fox News had paid out $13 million to five women to settle sexual-harassment claims they had brought against him.

Some of O'Reilly's critics were happy with the news. Its leading female star, Megyn Kelly, decamped for NBC in January.

The network's parent company, entertainment giant 21st Century Fox, insisted that Fox News will weather the current storm, noting in a statement the "strength of its talent bench" and expressing "full confidence that the network will continue to be a powerhouse in cable news".

That certainly could happen, though it probably won't be easy.

The decision to turn O'Reilly loose appears to have been made between Tuesday and Wednesday by the Murdochs, the family who control the operations of Fox News parent 21st Century Fox.

Author Stephen King tweeted: "New book by Fox News: Killing Bill O'Reilly".

But O'Reilly has been on Fox News for more than two decades.

O'Reilly is also one of the country's most popular nonfiction authors. Dozens of his show's advertisers fled, even though O'Reilly's viewership increased.

"That left CNN and MSNBC to figure out how to survive, and it shouldn't come as a surprise that MSNBC figured out the only path to success was to segment and go for the liberal audience", said Tom Hollihan, a professor at the Annenberg School for Communication and Journalism at the University of Southern California.

Starting Monday, Carlson's show will be followed at 9 p.m. EDT by "The Five", relocating from its afternoon slot.

O'Reilly's exit, which was first reported by NY magazine, follows that of former Fox News chairman Roger Ailes, who was forced to resign in July after being accused of sexual misconduct by a number of women, including former anchor Gretchen Carlson. He thanked his viewers and noted the success Fox had achieved.

Huh. Regardless, things aren't looking good for Bill! Advertisers may have been reluctant to return if there were continuing harassment complaints.

That multiplying effect gave O'Reilly a role in a seismic change, he said.

The U.S. Attorney's office in NY is investigating how 21st Century Fox handled the Roger Ailes scandal.

Following the Times story, Fox parent company 21st Century Fox said it had asked the same law firm that investigated Ailes to look into O'Reilly's behavior. Olbermann said that when he was working at Fox Sports in 1999, he helped a friend get a job at Fox News.

O'Reilly and President Donald Trump are both "crowd-pleasing showmen who know how to signal to loyalists in their audience that they are not taking themselves quite as seriously as their detractors are", said news consultant Andrew Tyndall.

"I understand how hard this has been for many of you", Rupert Murdoch said in a memo to Fox staff.
