Fox News Channel is developing a new one-hour weekend primetime program to be hosted by Greg Gutfeld, who’s being moved off late-night show Red Eye.
Gutfeld will continue to serve as co-host of The Five, airing weekdays at 5 PM ET, and will keep make his weekly appearance on The O’Reilly Factor. During this transition, a variety of rotating guest hosts will substitute host Red Eye. Gutfeld will address his sign-off from the show on tomorrow’s edition of Red Eye, which airs at 3 AM ET.
The pilot will focus on Gutfeld’s “strong libertarian values, and social commentary,” the network said, highlighting Gutfield’s “whimsical nature and political satire.”
Prior to joining FNC, Gutfeld was a staff writer at Prevention and editor-in-chief of Men’s Health magazine. He later became the editor-in-chief of Stuff. From 2004 to 2006, Gutfeld helmed Maxim in the UK and was a contributor to the Huffington Post. He has authored several books, including The Bible of Unspeakable Truths, the New York Times bestseller The Joy of Hate and, most recently, Not Cool: The Hipster Elite and Their War on You.
