  What channel is Bears vs. Vikings on today? Schedule, time for ‘Monday Night Football’ in Week 15 Here's everything you need to know to watch the Bears vs. Vikings game on "Monday Night Football," including kickoff time, TV channels and a full 2021 NFL Monday night schedule.To stay that way, however, they must get through the Chicago Bears. Justin Fields started well in his return to play after injuring his ribs, but ultimately the Bears couldn’t overcome their boogieman Aaron Rodgers and the Packers last week in primetime in Lambeau. They now get to run it back in a night game at home against another divisional rival, in which they’ll try to play spoiler against Kirk Cousins and the Vikings.

Jesse Watters has a vision for his new solo show on Fox News, which launched Monday night at 7 p.m. ET. He wants "Jesse Watters Primetime" to have some elements of his former weekend show, "Watters World," but still be "an entertaining hour with news and politics and culture, crime, tabloid — everything." To that end, he wants to make sure he takes in viewer feedback.

"We're also going to be debuting something," he told TheWrap by phone Monday morning. "You know how my mom's always texting me? We didn't think that was fair for just my mom to be able to text me, so we're going to be putting out a number where the whole country can text me. We're going to have an open line of communication with the country, so I'll be listening to them."

  Cowboys vs. Washington live score, updates, highlights from NFL 'Sunday Night Football' game Sporting News is tracking live scoring updates and highlights from Cowboys vs. Washington on "Sunday Night Football." Follow for complete results from the NFL Week 16 game.One of those teams vying for a playoff spot is Washington, though they'll have their work cut out for them. At 6-8, they currently sit in 10th place in the NFC and will need to win out to have a chance at a playoff spot.

He adds that viewers will play an active role in the show.

"That's what the show is about: Listening and then rallying for the people. We'll be having a segment at the end of each show where I will be putting people's texts on the air and I'll be responding to them because we want to hear from the people," Watters explained.

The reference to his mother is part of a long-standing inside joke for Fox News fans. As one of the co-hosts of "The Five," Watters introduced a segment a few years ago called "Mom Texts." The premise is simple: He reads a critique — and occasional praise — sent to him by his mother, a liberal woman who is both proud of her son and ready to remind him to enunciate his words properly on live television.

What channel is Saints vs. Dolphins on today? Schedule, time for ‘Monday Night Football’ in Week 16

  What channel is Saints vs. Dolphins on today? Schedule, time for ‘Monday Night Football’ in Week 16 Here's everything you need to know to watch the Saints vs. Dolphins game on "Sunday Night Football," including kickoff time, TV channels and a full schedule of NFL Monday night games.To get an idea of where analysts have this game, the over/under is 38.5. No one is really expecting a barnburner here. In the Saints’ win last week, they were held to 212 yards of total offense. What they brought was a smothering defense that didn’t let Tom Brady get comfortable for a moment. They’ll need to bring that same momentum against a scorching hot Dolphins team.

In addition to "Primetime," Watters is sticking with "The Five," which airs at 5 p.m. ET. He will have an hour between that show and his new nightly program, but he told TheWrap he won't eat dinner because he recently "read something that after you eat, your body loses energy because you're digesting and all that stuff." (He'll put off dinner until after the show, he said.)

He joked he might use the hour to do yoga, but added he plans to spend it prepping the script for the 7 p.m. program, which he will take over after almost a year of rotating hosts, each vying for the promotion he ultimately received.

Even though Watters plans to take in feedback from his viewers, he is already being decisive about the content of his evening program. Script-writing during the final hour before airtime is just one part of how involved he plans to be. Watters said he will be ready for any news that breaks during the hour, but will also feature interviews with newsmakers in addition to his own commentary, which he will deliver in a monologue at the top of the show.

Hannity, Fox face ethical issues over Trump text revelations

  Hannity, Fox face ethical issues over Trump text revelations NEW YORK (AP) — For years, Sean Hannity has skirted ethical boundaries with his role on a television network with “news” in its name. Yet it's never been as stark as now, with the committee investigating last year's Capitol insurrection seeking his testimony. The Jan. 6 select committee has revealed a series of texts where Hannity privately advised former President Donald Trump before, during and after the assault, and is seeking his insight about what happened in those days. The popular Fox News Channel prime-time host hasn't said what he will do, but he's slammed the congressional probe as a partisan witch hunt.

"I'm going to be deciding the entire hour what I want to do. It's my show," he said. "The producers on 'The Five' usually kind of set the rundown, with some input from the hosts … and it's a very entertaining show and that's why people tune in, but this more of a solo hosting gig and this is my hour so I'm going to be doing topics that I care about, whether it's getting fatter paychecks, whether it's controlling the border, whether it's political correctness."

"The Five" is a ratings juggernaut that became the first non-primetime cable news show to top a full quarter in total viewership at the end of 2021, pulling in an average of 3.3 million viewers for the final three months of the year. Watters joined the network in 2002, and has been on the show since 2017. His close friends, co-hosts Dana Perino and Greg Gutfeld, were set to appear at the end of Monday night's show to "review" his solo debut, he said. Perino might be "charitable," he guessed, but Gutfeld — who was also elevated last year to host the 11 p.m. ET show and has been winning ratings in that time slot for months — might be less so. "You never know what you're gonna get from Gutfeld," Watters quipped.

Watters, who is no stranger to controversy and recently came under fire for his recent comments about Dr. Anthony Fauci, told TheWrap that his aggressive, often controversial man-on-the-street "Watters World" segments will continue on "Primetime."
