Laura Ingraham, the fiery conservative commentator known for her radio show and frequent appearances on Fox News, has landed Fox's 10pm hour, with a show titled "The Ingraham Angle." The program will debut on October 30th, and will see Sean Hannity's show move to the 9pm hour, while "The Five" will move back to the 5pm time slot, starting Sept. 25.

  • Timing: The reshuffle in the network's primetime lineup comes after Eric Bolling's exit amid sexual harassment allegations, which led to the cancellation of his 5 P.M. show The Specialists.
  • Between the lines: Ingraham, who is already well-known and liked among Fox News viewers, may be able to provide much-needed stability during a time of unrest at the network.

Why it matters: Trump pledged during the 2016 campaign to reduce the national debt and eliminate it entirely within eight years, though he also deemed himself "the king of debt" and said there were some priorities that required spending. In the fiscal year that ended in September, the deficit reached a record $3.1 trillion.

A federal judge on Tuesday dismissed the Justice Department's attempted intervention on behalf of President Trump in writer E. Jean Carroll's defamation lawsuit against him, after she accused him of raping her in a dressing room in the mid-1990s.
