A few weeks ago we reported that Alan Colmes, the co-host of Hannity & Colmes, would be leaving the show (Berman Post: Colmes to Leave "Hannity & Colmes"). Back then, it was not clear if someone would be replacing Colmes or if it would be just Hannity. It is now being reported that Colmes will not be replaced, but their will be a panel of three people who will be on the show with Hannity. The new show lineup will premiere on January 12th.
"TVNewser has learned Fox News will debut a new program at 9pmET, entitled "Hannity," featuring Sean Hannity as host. The program premieres January 12.
"Hannity" will include a "Great American Panel" of three nightly in studio guests — a liberal, a conservative and an "X factor." The show will mix commentary, interviews and special segment like a "Hate Hannity Hotline."
This is the first time in FNC's 12-year history it will alter programming at the 9pmET timeslot."
