FOLKENFLIK: O'Reilly's show was.
Arguably, the lineup installed in his stead is more reliably conservative. Eric Bolling begins his own show at 5 p.m. and the current late-afternoon panel show, "The Five", moves into the 9 p.m. hour. And they said they were likely to be credible, and they were likely not to stop.
O'Reilly will be replaced in his prime-time lineup by Fox host Tucker Carlson.
He remains a Fox consultant through 2018.

I think the first race was still a high, the second race was still a high and then this one was a little bit of a dip. Hamilton's teammate Bottas finished third ahead of Kimi Raikkonen and Red Bull's Daniel Ricciardo .
Fox plainly hopes that the brand and point of view it has developed is stronger than any single personality, even one as outsized as O'Reilly.
O'Reilly spent 21 years with the Fox News Chanel, and many are speculating that a legal battle could loom over the money owed as part of a multi-year contract he signed.
On Wednesday, 21st Century Fox announced that O'Reilly - who was vacationing in Italy - would not be returning to his anchor chair on Monday.

According to Politico's Joe Pompeo who saw an April 18 email exchange between O'Reilly and his representatives, O'Reilly is said to have wrote, "If we show to Fox tomorrow, word will get out and the Thursday call may be cancelled". She added: "Nothing changed in the sense that the culture that perpetuated this behavior is the same".
In an interview with the Christian Broadcast Network in 2015, she said she was "fired" as a response to "calling somebody out". "It's awful, " she said. O' Reilly said in a statement at the time that he had settled only to spare his children from controversy. His attorney Marc Kasowitz said Tuesday, "There is obviously an orchestrated campaign by activists and lawyers to destroy Mr. O'Reilly and enrich themselves through publicity-driven donations". "He walks past and says, 'Hey, Hot Chocolate.' But he doesn't look at me when he said it".
