Stephen Colbert and 'Stephen Colbert' Milk the Firing of Bill O'Reilly

O'Reilly has been kicked out of Fox News after a sexual harassment scandal that saw protests as well as an advertising boycott of O'Reilly's news show in the wake of the reports of the scandal. I'll do it live. There are many offices these days where pulling a Clinton, Trump or O'Reilly will get you summarily canned. Later, O'Reilly responded in a brief statement, insisting the the harassment allegations "completely unfounded". "I wish only the best for Fox News Channel", he concluded.

"It's not like they brought in Shep Smith or a news anchor", Carusone said.

Fox agrees to pay $2.5 million to Tamara Holder, a former on-air contributor, following her allegations that Francisco Cortes, an executive at Fox News Latino who was terminated, forced himself on her in 2015.

Trump's most ardent defender on Fox, Sean Hannity, remains at 10 p.m. ET. She was referring to the show against which The Five will now compete: MSNBC's Rachel Maddow Show. It's a measure of how competitive MSNBC has become in prime time that Guilfoyle used Maddow's name on Fox News's air.

Fox had its largest audience on the renamed "The Factor" Wednesday night since O'Reilly left for what became a permanent vacation, with the Dana Perino-hosted show seen by 3.34 million people, the Nielsen company said Thursday.

So would Fox trade Bill for Chris? "And what, suddenly sexual harassment's a crime?"

O'Grady said buyouts and early retirements won't achieve that goal, because the math makes it unrealistic. Upton wants to draw attention to the dangers of closing the office to stop it from happening.

Addressing the allegations, O'Reilly posted a statement to his website on April 1, emphasizing that his position has made him "vulnerable to lawsuits", despite the fact that "no one has ever filed a complaint", about him with the Human Resources Department.

Another former Fox contributor, Kirsten Powers, described on CNN an on-air segment with O'Reilly she found offensive because of the way the host talked about all the "blondes" who worked there. The firing followed weeks of controversy after the New York Times revealed O'Reilly and Fox News had paid almost $13 million to settle sexual harassment allegations with multiple women during his tenure at Fox.

"Cleary time will tell, but they lost Glenn Beck, they lost Megyn Kelly, they lost Roger Ailes, and ratings are at an all-time right high now", he said.

"She is the hero of this story", Hoover said.

O'Reilly's lawyers said he was the victim of an orchestrated campaign by liberal organizations like Media Matters for America, which contacted his advertisers to pressure them to leave the show.
