Fox News’ large network of hosts covers everything from school shootings to international affairs. Their comments often lead to controversy, yet the network consistently leads the pack with top ratings. Every Fox viewer has a favorite host and ones they can’t stand. So, whether they’ve left the network or their Fox careers are going strong, these are the most loved and hated Fox News contributors. One highly controversial figure is clearly the network’s most hated host (No. 10).
1. Loved: Tucker Carlson
With Bill O’Reilly out (more on that soon), Tucker Carlson took over The O’Reilly Factor’s 8 p.m. time slot. Tucker Carlson Tonight has attracted a younger audience, with a 16% increase in viewers age 25 to 54 during the second quarter of 2017. Tucker Carlson Tonight was the “highest rated hour in cable news” in May 2017, according to Forbes, which deemed Carlson “the king of cable news” after 2.67 million viewers tuned in.
