FNC’s The Five Celebrates 1,000th Episode

By Brian Flood 

Today will mark the 1,001st episode of Fox News Channel’s The Five. Eric Bolling kicked off Wednesday’s 1000th episode with a brief acknowledgement of the milestone, saying they “look forward to the next, I don’t know, thousand or two shows.”

The five-person panel show is regularly among the most-watched shows in cable news. Even The Daily Show’s Jon Stewart is a fan, telling The Five co-host Dana Perino “we’re obsessed with The Five” back in April. Stewart explained it was a positive kind of obsession, “it’s not like heroin.”

In other The Five news, Bob Beckel is leaving his role as co-host and will depart the network, FNC announced today. Check out Bolling’s talking about the milestone:
