Fox’s right leaning cable channel is changing up its schedule again.

Greg Gutfeld, who currently hosts the weekend “The Greg Gutfeld Show,” will move to weeknights at 11 p.m. eastern with “Gutfeld!

The weekend “Gutfeld Show” will air is last weekend edition March 13, 2021, with the debut in the new timeslot scheduled for April 5, 2021.

“Gutfeld!” will takeover the “Fox News @ Night” timeslot, with the show and host Shannon Bream moving to midnight starting April 6, 2021.

A new weekend show to replace Gutfeld will be named later.

Gutfeld is also slated to continue to co-host “The Five” at 5 p.m. eastern.

“Gutfeld!” is being billed as an alternative to the traditional network late night TV shows, though only its last 25 minutes will go head to head with the likes of “The Tonight Show” in most central and eastern time zones markets. It will, however, go head to head with late night local newscasts in most of these same markets.

As a support that new format, Fox announced that contributor Tom Shillue, who was part of Jimmy Fallon’s barbershop quartet, will appear along with comedians Joe DeVito and Joe Machi.

The network went some other schedule changes earlier in 2021, something that’s not uncommon on inauguration years.
