Brian Kilmeade is getting a second crack at hosting Fox News Primetime.

The longtime Fox & Friends co-host announced on his Twitter account Friday that he’ll be hosting the network’s 7 p.m. hour during the week of March 22.

Kilmeade will become the third Fox Newser to earn a second week hosting the program, which launched back in January. Trey Gowdy and Maria Bartiromo have also hosted the program for two weeks.

To-date, Kilmeade has been the top-rated guest host among adults 25-54, while Gowdy has averaged the largest total audience.

Bartiromo managed to score an interview with former President Trump on Wednesday, which lifted her second-week ratings a bit (although she remains the third-highest-rated host of the seven who have led Fox News Primetime so far).

It remains to be seen whether Kilmeade is the final Fox Newser to get a second week at the Fox News Primetime desk, or if there are others who will get another opportunity to guest-host the hour.

Here are the ratings for each week of Fox News Primetime since its January 18 launch.
