FOX News Channel (FNC) anchor Megyn Kelly's first primetime special, "Megyn Kelly presents," will premiere Tuesday, May 17 (8:00-9:00 PM ET/PT) on FOX, followed by the premiere of new unscripted dating series COUPLED (9:00-10:00 PM ET/PT).
Kelly anchors a one-hour primetime program on FOX News Channel weeknights at 9:00 PM ET. Roger Ailes, Chairman & CEO of FOX News, is the Senior Executive Producer for Kelly's specials.
Executive-produced by broadcast television veteran Bill Geddie, the one-hour special airing on FOX, will feature a variety of celebrity interviews from the world of politics, entertainment and other areas of human interest. Showcasing Kelly's renowned journalism skills, as well as her personality and quick wit, this up-to-the minute hour will also be personal in nature and address the year Kelly has had as one of the most prominent voices covering the 2016 presidential campaign.
Following "MEGYN KELLY presents," COUPLED will debut at 9:00-10:00 PM ET/PT on FOX. Hosted by Terrence "J" Jenkins and produced by Emmy Award winner Mark Burnett ("Survivor," "The Voice"), COUPLED gives the ladies first choice as they opt "yes" or "no" on each single man who arrives at their bungalows on the island of Anguilla. As couples match up based on their instant chemistry, they'll jet off to another part of the island to put their relationship to the test. Then, the real soap opera will begin to unfold as these budding pairs discover whether or not they have true compatibility. COUPLED will also feature the one thing that all modern romances have in common - texting. The women and men will be armed with cell phones throughout their time on the island, allowing the opportunity to communicate with the others - whether it involves asking a friend for advice or flirting with a potential new love connection. Viewers will get a front row seat to the real drama, as these text conversations pop up on screen.
The following week, on Tuesday, May 24, the Season Three premiere of HOTEL HELL kicks off the night at 8:00 PM, followed by an all-new episode of COUPLED (9:00-10:00 PM ET/PT). Season Three of HOTEL HELL features award-winning chef and hospitality expert Gordon Ramsay traveling the country to Ft. Pierce, FL; Island Park, ID; Harpers Ferry, WV; Southbridge, MA; Newton, PA; Chelan, WA; and Loudonville, OH, to experience struggling hotel establishments firsthand. Ramsay will delve deep into the inner workings of each business - from their management practices, staff chemistry and morale to cleanliness, food and décor - as he attempts to get these establishments on the right track.
He will tackle a hotel owner who hoards clothing in the locked closets of the guests' rooms; a historic inn, where shocking rumors about the owners have left their rooms empty; and a family-built castle that has fallen on the shoulders of the ex-wife. Some owners will work with Ramsay to address the issues he's identified, while others will refuse to take the advice they sought out, and face the consequences. In the end, it will be up to the owners and their staff to work together to keep their hotels open.
