Tucker Carlson had a strong showing in our Reader Poll of who should replace Megyn Kelly at Fox News, now that she is moving to NBC.

His performance replacing Greta at the 7 p.m. slot made him a hit among conservatives. We covered many of his take-downs, the most epic of which Kurt Eichenwald.

While the Eichenwald meltdown was the most epic, it was not even the most disturbing, Possibly scariest interview with college Social Justice Warrior I’ve ever seen:

His hammering of liberal journalist Jonathan Allen also was amazing, Tucker Carlson Dismantles Liberal Journalist Over Smear Piece on Jeff Sessions:

Tucker really was in his element in the format — quick witted, aggressive, and interesting. His show had excellent ratings, and was the buzz of the conservative/non-liberal internet.

And now he’s been rewarded and will replace Kelly.

This is such a great move for Fox News. There finally is a reason for conservatives to watch again in the time slot, after what appeared to me a slide to the mushy middle with Kelly.

So who should replace Tucker in the 7 p.m. slot? Martha MacCallum is taking that slot for the first 100 days of Trump’s term — which suggests Fox News is not sure she’ll be there permanently. Fox News needs to develop a rising star – I can’t imagine people getting excited “Oh, can’t wait to watch Marth MacCallum tonight!”

How about Dana Loesch, winner of the Reader Poll, for the 7 p.m. slot?
