Fox News host Jesse Watters has confirmed that his show Watters’ World is ending, and he will be moving to the 7 p.m. slot for his new show Jesse Watters Primetime, beginning Jan. 24.
“Fox announced that I’m going to be hosting the 7 p.m. hour called Jesse Watters Primetime. I’m really excited for the opportunity and extremely grateful to get the shot. I’m still going to be co-hosting The Five — Greg couldn’t live without me. But Watters’ World is leaving Saturday nights,” the host said. He went on:
If you’ve watched Watters’ World from the beginning, as we transitioned from the factory to the studio, you know how much the show’s grown and how much I’ve grown as a host and as a person. I’m not saying I put on weight, which I did for a while, but I lost it — and you’ll notice that in some of the footage we’re about to show you.
In an emotional monologue about where the show has been and upcoming plans, Watters continued: “What I’m saying is, my world has gotten a whole lot bigger. I spoke about this in my book, How I Saved the World, which was number one. Thank you.”
“But I really saved myself,” he said, “and by doing so, made the world around me a better place. Everyone is the master of their own world. You’re responsible for your own thoughts, happiness, and success. Everything starts here. The power of positive thinking, big dreams, hard work, and good habits will take you anywhere you want…that, and of course, a lot of love. And waking up really early in the morning doesn’t hurt, either.”
Watters concluded: “From presidents and politicians to singers and actors, we’ve interviewed a lot of people. We gave Trump a Watters’ World quiz and he aced it. We pressed Fauci on China as coronavirus first spread around the world. We chatted with everyone from billionaires to business kids to big-time movie directors.”
