Fox News has canceled another popular show as its viewership continues to spiral after parting ways with top host Tucker Carlson.
On Thursday, Fox News announced that it would be canceling its show “The Next Revolution,” which aired at 9 p.m. ET Sunday and was hosted by Steve Hilton. This show will be replaced by Trey Gowdy’s Sunday Night in America.
Hilton is a British political commentator and served as the director of strategy for the British Prime Minister from 2010 to 2012. He has hosted “The Next Revolution” on Fox News since 2017.
Hilton will not, however, be leaving the network and will stay on as a contributor. According to Fox News, he will be stepping back from hosting in order to “focus on his new California nonpartisan policy organization launching next week.”
Hilton addressed the cancelation of his show on Twitter in a video saying, “The Next Revolution will not be televised this Sunday or in the future. I do want to say a huge thank you who’ve supported us on The Next Revolution.”
“But you’ll still see a lot of me on Fox,” Hilton assured his viewers. “And you’ll see a lot more of me in California, where I’m going to be spending a lot of my energy now focused on a new organization that I’ll be launching next week which will be developing ideas and policies to move our state forward and to restore the California dream.”

Megan Albano, Senior Vice President of The Five & Weekend Programming at Fox News Channel, announced the network’s programming shakeup, saying, “We are excited to launch a new dynamic weekend line-up that will further solidify our position as the number one cable news network for more than two decades. We thank Steve Hilton for his show’s contributions and look forward to continuing to feature his valuable insights across our daytime and primetime programming.”
Other changes to the weekend primetime lineup include The Big Saturday/Sunday Show becoming The Big Weekend Show, and the network’s new show, Fox News Saturday Night will air at 10 p.m. ET.
Since his departure, Carlson has begun working with Tesla and Twitter CEO Elon Musk to produce a version of his Fox News show for Twitter, which Carlson announced on May 9.
