Will Fox News star Sean Hannity join his former departed colleagues Tucker Carlson and Dan Bongino in the unemployment line soon?
Fox News channel has suffered a huge backlash after Carlson was removed from his primetime show without warning on April 24.

Former viewers called for a boycott of the network, and Carlson’s 8:00 p.m. time slot has seen it’s ratings numbers plummet from an average of 3+ million a night to just 1.65 million under replacement Brian Kilmeade.
The boycott effects have been felt throughout Fox News’ primetime lineup, and has seriously impacted the show Carlson formerly lead into: Hannity Tonight.
Hannity’s ratings have declined from an average of 2.7 million during the week of April 13th to an average of just 1.7 million last week — a 1 million viewer ratings decline without Carlson.
On Friday, April 28th Hannity’s show only had 1.3 million viewers.
That’s his lowest-rated show ever.

“It’s not helping that Hannity’s lead in now is not the fired Tucker Carlson but a miscellaneous show that has also dropped. The 8pm slot is getting no numbers,” ShowBiz411 reported. “But if Hannity was so dependent on Carlson’s numbers, what does that say for him anyway?”
Hannity said he, like Carlson, had no prior warning that his colleague was going to be fired.
“It’s very hard,” Hannity said, according to ConservativeBrief. “My phone has been blowing up. The hard part for me is I don’t have a clue … I have no idea.”
“Was it Tucker’s decision? Was it Fox’s?” he asked. ” Was it a mutual agreement that they had? I don’t know. I guess people think that because I’ve been there the longest I’d have some knowledge or understanding of what’s going on, but… I just don’t.”
With rock bottom numbers, will Fox News executives replace Hannity next?
