Here comes the judge! Jeanine Pirro of Fox News is getting a new gig and I did not see this coming. She'll be taking a permanent hosting gig on the show 'The Five.'

WATCH the official announcement video:



The conservative pundit will join the all-star cast of Greg Gutfeld, Jesse Waters, and Dana Perino. The last spot will be a rotating door of leftist pundits Geraldo Rivera, Harold Ford Jr., and Jessica Tarlov. Remember Juan Williams? He left the show back in May after being one of the original hosts back in 2011.

Jesse Watters is also getting into a new primetime show, just another program for Fox News to show off in hopes to destroy CNN in the ratings, a network who suffered some losses in ratings last year amid the controversies with some of their creepy hosts.

Suzanne Scott, CEO of Fox News Media, issued a brief statement: "The Five continues to be a beloved show by the American audience. Each of the co-hosts are accomplished and insightful talent with diverse opinions and terrific chemistry who will certainly help drive this ensemble program going forward."

Fox News stated the following about the show: "The Five," a panelist-style discussion program that features political jokes and commentary, consistently ranks as the highest program on cable news during its time slot. In the fourth quarter of 2021, it averaged 3.3 million total viewers."
