Fox News has announced plans for a new 12pmET show called “Outnumbered” that will feature a rotating ensemble of four female hosts and one male host. The show will debut April 28.
In the new daytime lineup, “Happening Now,” anchored by Jon Scott and Jenna Lee, will split into two one-hour blocks at 11amET and 1pmET. “America’s News Headquarters,” which has had a temporary place in the lineup since the primetime shuffle last year, will no longer air on weekdays.
Harris Faulkner and FBN’s Sandra Smith will be the rotating hosts that will lead news coverage on “Outnumbered.” Other women featured will be Kimberly Guilfoyle and Andrea Tantaros, along with Fox News contributors Jedediah Bila, Katie Pavlich and Kirsten Powers. The solo male panelist will vary each day.
“Outnumbered combines a distinctive group of FOX talent with unique experiences and insights that will make for compelling news programming. We look forward to once again pushing the envelope with the addition of this new show and are confident the revised line-up will only strengthen the FNC brand,” senior vice president of news Jay Wallace said in a statement.
Fox News has seen great success with “The Five,” its 5pmET ensemble show that debuted after Glenn Beck’s departure in 2011. The show finished the first quarter of this year third in total viewers and second in the demo among all cable news programs.
