Accuracy in Media

Fox News Channel announced on Friday that a new show called Fox News Specialists, hosted by Eric Bolling, Katherine Timpf and Eboni K. Williams, will debut on Monday at 5 p.m., replacing The Five, which moved to 9 p.m. after the departure from the network of Bill O’Reilly.

“Eric, Katherine and Eboni’s diverse opinions and backgrounds will provide our audience with an hour of informative and entertaining analysis on daily stories that are most important to Americans. The combination of the co-hosts’ expertise in business, millennial and legal topics, respectively, will make for lively and compelling discourse,” said Fox News’  vice president of programming Suzanne Scott in an email statement.

Timpf and Williams are currently Fox News contributors, and Bolling was one of the co-hosts of The Five as well a frequent fill-in host for Bill O’Reilly.

They will be joined each day by two guest experts who will “discuss the top stories driving the headlines of the day,” according to the email statement.

Sounds a lot like The Five with a twist.

To get the show off the ground Bolling will interview President Trump on Monday, which should give it a big advantage over its competition.

Whether or not Fox can duplicate the ratings success of The Five remains to be seen. But since Fox viewers tend to be very loyal to the network, even bad shows can succeed ratings-wise.

    It would have been so great if Eric Bolling had his own show as promised. Disappointed with the panel format. Kat T is a polarizing figure many conservatives find classless and annoying. Seems like FOX made an odd calculation here. Bolling’s considerable fan base are not her fans (to put it mildly) and her followers are not Bolling fans. If you put two people on the same show who both annoy considerable but different portions of the viewers, what do you get? We will have to wait and see, but it looks like FOX is cruising for a bruising here.

    WE THE PEOPLE, HAVE JUST ONE QUESTION, the nations only law, Oregon Senate Bill 111 Law Enforcement Use of Deadly Physical Force passed in 2007 mandated to be in full force and funded July 1, 2008 with our organizations program, Truly Reforming Law Enforcement to save thousands of lives in our nation.

    The heart of the five major very specific changes is: When an officer is repeatedly beating/kicking or starting to shoot to death a restrained innocent person, the witnessing officers must STOP & Arrest the illegal actions of the offending officer. If the officer is charged with murder and found guilty in a federal court for criminal accusations by their peers to a 20 years to life sentence that is the only way Equal Justice will be served in the advanced nations with the most murders.

    This “The Five” redux is a poor stepchild to a concept that is already getting long in the tooth. The two Murdoch boys are off to a rousing terrible start. The more I think about it, it also reminds me of the awful “Redeye” show. I hate to see Fox News floundering like this since we need it so desperately.

    Don’t like Eboni Williams. She talks WAY to fast. Annoying. Probably won’t watch. LOVE Eric Bolling.

    Just finished watching premier of the new show. Very disappointed in all the hosts talking over each other and poor format. Reminds me of the ABC show, “The View”
