  • John Oliver Makes Commercial to Caution Trump About Publicly Supporting Bill O'Reilly

Companies' advertising time on "The O'Reilly Factor" has been cut by more than half since the Times report, according to an analysis released Tuesday by Kantar Media. "Last fall I booked a trip that should be terrific, not going to tell you where it is, but we have a contest on billoreilly.com..."

Fox News representatives also told BuzzFeed News that O'Reilly was planning to return on April 24. NY magazine's Gabriel Sherman, who wrote a book about former Fox News chief Roger Ailes, reported on Tuesday that 21st Century Fox CEO James Murdoch wants O'Reilly to step down for good.

In wake of Trump defending Fox News host Bill O'Reilly as "a good person" after a slew of sexual harassment allegations against him, Oliver announced he was once again deploying the widely recognized "Catheter Cowboy" to teach Trump another lesson.

Dozens of companies have pulled ads from "The O'Reilly Factor" following his sexual harassment allegations, but John Oliver wants to buy airtime!

"I believe that Bill O'Reilly sexually harassed Wendy Walsh", he told host Joy Reid. Two of the settlements reportedly came after former Fox News Chair Roger Ailes was dismissed from Fox News in another sexual harassment scandal. O'Reilly had hinted Monday he would be taking some time off the air, telling viewers that he would "like to take some time off around Easter" because "it's calming". O'Reilly's April 4 show alone managed to draw 3.76 million viewers. Apparently, the younger Murdoch is pushing for this to happen as quickly as possible, so if he gets his way, tonight's episode of The O'Reilly Factor will end up being its last. An investigation by the state agency, Bloom contends, is the only probe that "can remedy the continued illegal conduct at Fox News". However, when she refused his invitation to go to his hotel room after the dinner, Mr. O'Reilly's attitude towards her changed, and she was eventually dropped from the TV program.

With advertisers dropping O'Reilly's top rated show, rival networks who have failed for 20 years to compete are pouncing, as seen Sunday on MSNBC's "AM Joy". Trump recently said, "I don't think Bill would do anything wrong".

President Trump made these statements a few days after it was reported that five women had received settlements amounting to $13 million after claiming sexual harassment deeds against O'Breilly.
