The Five is an American panel talk show on Fox News Channel featuring a panel who discusses current stories, political issues, and pop culture. The show premiered on July 11, 2011, replacing the Glenn Beck program, and airs on weeknights at 5:00 p.m. ET. It moved to 9 p.m. in April 2017, but returned to its original 5:00 p.m. time slot in September. On October 3, 2011, after successful ratings and high popularity, Fox News announced that The Five would become a permanent series, as the program had previously been announced to last only during the summer. In 2013, The Five was the second-most-watched program in all of cable news in the United States, placing only behind The O'Reilly Factor, also on the Fox News Channel. The program has occasionally been the number one rated cable news series in the key 25 to 54 viewing demographic.
