Fox News does not plan to hold January 6 hearings live

At 8 p.m. EST on Thursday, NBC goes into special report mode for the first hearing led by the House Select Committee investigating the Jan. 6 attack. CBS will air a special called “Capitol Assault Hearings.” On ABC, for a two-hour block, its usual prime-time lineup will be replaced with “Attack on the Capitol: The Investigation – An ABC News Special.” MSNBC and The News will have wall-to-wall coverage all night.

There will be a significant outlier, however: Fox News, the top-rated cable news network, said Monday it would stick to its regular lineup during the hearings, with Tucker Carlson, Sean Hannity and Laura Ingraham proceeding as they usually would.

The network said in a statement Monday that its primetime hosts “will cover ratings as the news warrants.”

The anchors had a bad opinion of the committee. Mr. Carlson called the committee “grotesque” on his Monday night show, and Mr. Hannity called the group of five Democrats and two Republicans “wrong” on his 9 p.m. show.
