Fox News stalwart Bill O’Reilly will now be hosting “The O’Reilly Factor” only four nights out of the week instead of the traditional five nights.
The reasoning behind the new schedule appears to surround the recent sexual harassment allegations made against the host.
The show will now only run from Monday through Thursday, with his Friday night show scheduled to be replaced.
Reportedly, Fox News wants to begin a spinoff show called “Friday Factor,” which would feature different replacement hosts to fill O’Reilly’s chair, such as Bret Baier, Eric Bolling, Chris Wallace, and Jesse Watters.
In addition, on Tuesday, O’Reilly told his viewers he will be taking an extended vacation over the next few weeks.
Since the allegations against O’Reilly surfaced, nearly one hundred companies have pulled their advertisements from airing during his show.
