Dear Donald Trump. While you may be personally mourning the downfall of your milkshake BFF Bill O’Reilly, whom you think did nothing wrong, you can take comfort in the fact that even more Trump cheerleaders will now be in Fox News prime time.
According to Gabriel Sherman, Tucker Carlson will move into O’Reilly’s slot at 8 PM ET and The Five will move to 9 PM ET. Apparently, O’Reilly's stalker and henchman, Jesse Watters, will take Eric Bollings seat at The Five:

Bolling will get his own show at 5 PM, according to Dylan Byers.

So instead of just three Trump cheerleaders from 8-11 PM, Trump will now have six: Guilfoyle, Watters, Carlson and, to a lesser extent, Gutfeld and Perino - plus Hannity! As a bonus, Trump-loving Eric Bolling will now have a full hour to cheerlead on his own.
There's need to be a Gloomy Gus, Donald, over sexual harassment no longer being tolerated at Fox News. While you may have to be careful not to get caught grabbing any more women "by the p***y," you can rest assured prime time will continue to spin your ties to Russia and Vladimir Putin just the way you like, as it has always done.
Watch Guilfoyle and Bolling swoon over Trump on New Year’s Eve, December 31, 2015, to get a taste of what we’ll all see more of, below.
The jokes just write themselves.
This line-up doesn’t look very strong to me but never underestimate the viewing habits of your typical Fox News viewer.
I had previously thought that O’Reilly was going to retire his show this year and not renew his contract. I’m betting that right now, he wishes he had done so, which would have allowed him to save face and just say that he was choosing to end his show on his own terms and all that. Instead, he’s essentially been fired in public. Given the way he has treated others throughout his career, this treatment is probably more appropriate.
