Fox Business Network Cancels The Independents

The Wrap reports that the Fox Business Network has canceled The Independents and will replace it with an eponymous show for Kennedy.

The Independents was hosted by the former MTV VJ along with sidekicks Kmele Foster and Reason editor-in-chief Matt Welch, last aired on January 9th. The show premiered December 9, 2013, and was promoted as an alternative voice for cable news.

All is not lost for Kennedy, however. She will receive her own show, titled Kennedy, debuting Jan. 26 on the same network. “The show will concentrate on water-cooler topics, including politics, business and culture, and will air Monday-Friday,” TheWrap reports.

This reconfiguration is part of the channel’s primetime shakeup, including the addition of Strange Inheritance, a new show hosted by Fox anchor Jamie Colby, airing Monday through Thursday at 9 p.m. ET.

Also, as part of the changes, Stossel will move from from airing Thursdays at 9 p.m. to Fridays at 9 p.m. ET.
