A Drudge Report exclusive announcement that news anchor Megyn Kelly will get the 9 p.m. ET slot on Fox News brought out the competitiveness in Piers Morgan, whose CNN news shows will air opposite Kelly.

Morgan tweeted his response to the news:

The news that Kelly will take that 9 p.m. slot, currently held by Sean Hannity, leaves the many wondering what will happen to Hannity.

Mediaite speculates the new shifts could go something like this: Hannity to 10 p.m., and Greta Van Susteren, to 7 p.m., a spot which is held by Shepard Smith.

Fox host Eric Bolling took his own jab at Morgan on Twitter:

And he included MSNBC’s Rachel Maddow, whose show also airs in that 9 p.m. slot:

In July, Variety took a look at announced Fox changes, including the decision to move Kelly to primetime, shift Gretchen Carlson to a daytime slot and hire Elisabeth Hasselbeck.

Variety said Fox, which has been at the top of its category, hasn’t made this many changes in the past. The entertainment publication reported that Fox News primetime programming in July pulled in 367,000 viewers, ages 25 to 54, while MSNBC drew 271,000 and CNN got 235,000, according to Nielsen.
