Fox News Channel finally announced the replacement program with which it will fill the void left when Megyn Kelly moved to primetime — Outnumbered. It’s kind of like The View, in that it’s a panel of women taking on the day’s top news/pop culture headlines — only with an FNC spin in that it’s got one rotating slot for a guy, who’s, you know, outnumbered. The announcement comes the same day The View announced it had talked all of its current and former co-hosts — including the ones who left under a cloud — to return to the show May 15 to say so-long to Babs Walters, who is retiring as show on-air Den Mom, though she’s continuing as show exec producer.
Outnumbered debuts Monday, April 28 at 12 PM ET; Fox Report Weekend anchor Harris Faulkner and Fox Business Network’s Sandra Smith are among the panelists named today. Additional personalities to be featured include co-hosts of The Five, Kimberly Guilfoyle and Andrea Tantaros; along with FNC contributors Jedediah Bila, Katie Pavlich and Kirsten Powers. Each of the panelists maintain their respective roles on FNC and FBN. Read More »
