The program's deceptively simple premise is five folks sitting around a table at 5 p.m. EDT, kicking around the day's news and hot topics. This year "The Five" has emerged as Fox's second most popular show, behind only Bill O'Reilly, despite not having the larger pool of potential viewers that prime time usually provides.

Fox News’s Bob Beckel has been fired (again) after making racially insensitive comments to a black colleague, Variety reports.

“Bob Beckel was terminated today for making an insensitive remark to an African-American employee,” Fox News explained in a statement.

It was reported that someone who was familiar with the incident reported both “The Five” co-host and his comment to Fox News’ human resource department.

This is not the first time accusations of racism have affected the network.

Following the departures of former Fox News host Bill O’Reilly and former Fox News CEO Roger Ailes, who passed away earlier this week, the network was said to have scheduled a diversity training for all of its employees and remote staff.
