Fox News Channel on Wednesday released its new weekday evening lineup after 21st Century Fox announced that longtime host Bill O'Reilly would not be returning to the network.

Starting Monday, April 24, Fox New will host a new evening lineup.

Tucker Carlson's show "Tucker Carlson Tonight" will be moved from its current 9:00 p.m. ET time slot to 8:00 p.m., taking over O'Reilly's long-held spot.

21st Century Fox announced Wednesday that O'Reilly will not be returning to Fox News amid sexual harassment allegations that have plagued the top-rated host in recent weeks.

Another big lineup change will be that, starting May 1, Eric Bolling will debut his own show in the 5:00 p.m. ET time slot. "The Story with Martha MacCallum" will premiere at 7:00 p.m. ET the same day, but MacCallum will continue anchoring "The First 100 Days" through April 28.

In the meantime, "Special Report with Bret Baier" will fill the 5:00 to 7:00 p.m. time slot next week.

"The Five"–co-hosted by Kimberly Guilfoyle, Dana Perino, Bob Beckel, Greg Gutfeld, Jesse Watters, and Juan Williams–will be moved to 9:00 p.m. ET.

Sean Hannity will keep his current time slot at 10:00 p.m.

For the remainder of this week, "The O'Reilly Factor" will continue in the 8:00 p.m. spot, with Dana Perino as the guest host on Wednesday and Thursday. Greg Gutfeld will host the last show on Friday.
