Tucker Carlson Tonight is moving to 9:00pm ET beginning on Monday, January 9th on Fox News Channel's top-rated primetime lineup. 

"Tucker Carlson Tonight" - which previously aired at 7:00pm ET - had a record-breaking launch in November, fast becoming one of the most buzzed-about cable news programs on television.

"In less than two months, Tucker has taken cable news by storm with his spirited interviews and consistently strong performance. Viewers have overwhelmingly responded to the show and we look forward to him being a part of Fox News’ powerful primetime line-up," said Rupert Murdoch, Executive Chairman of 21st Century Fox and Executive Chairman of FOX News.

Martha MacCallum will anchor a new 7:00pm ET show called "The First 100 Days," beginning on Monday, January 16.

"Martha is a versatile and skilled anchor who has proven to be an essential component of our news programming. For the last 12 years, our viewers have trusted her reporting and we are pleased she will be part of our primetime line-up for the first 100 days of the new presidency," said Murdoch.

MacCallum, who recently signed a multi-year deal with Fox News Channel, will also anchor the Inauguration Day coverage on Friday, January 20th alongside Bret Baier.

MacCallum has anchored "America’s Newsroom" alongside Bill Hemmer since 2010 and has played a pivotal role during the network’s presidential election coverage since 2004.
