Mike Rowe Joining Fox Business Primetime Along with John Rich

by Jonathan Howard

There is a new show coming to Fox Business Primetime. Soon, Mike Rowe, John Rich, Stuart Varney, and more will be joining the primetime slate. This won’t be a political or financial talk show with a person behind a desk. This will be documentary-style programming featuring these hosts.

Of course, fans know Mike Rowe for his past work on Dirty Jobs among other shows. Showing off the working class of America doing the jobs most people don’t want to do. Most of the time, doing jobs no one else can do. Instead of running reruns of shows during this time slot, the programming will be more entertainment-focused with original shows.

Viewers will notice the change to be similar to CNBC’s slate of primetime shows such as Shark Tank. The new schedule will be dubbed “FBN Prime” and is going to debut on September 20th. The fall season is big for new shows and series in primetime. Usually, the fall season is when networks put forth their best programming.

Among the topics for the shows will be focusing on work, real estate, and home remodeling among other sectors. As for the recent shows the network has added in recent months, those will all remain intact. Meanwhile, Mike Rowe will host How America Works. The show will be an hour-long and air at 8 PM EST on Mondays. The 9 PM slot on Mondays will be led by Fox Business anchor, Stuart Varney. Varney will have two back-to-back episodes.

Tuesday & Wednesday Night Primetime

After Mike Rowe Mondays, there will be new shows on Tuesday and Wednesday night. Tuesday will feature American Dream Home hosted by Cheryl Casone. Casone is a Fox Business anchor with previous experience on the network. Kasie McDonnell will follow at 9 with Mansion Global. Both shows are real estate-focused. The latter will feature lavish properties and is based on a Wall Street Journal regular feature.

Finally, on Wednesdays Fox Business will feature American Gold: The Legend of Bear Gulch. Following the Dale brothers, the show will feature the family mining in Montana where they hope to find gold. Finally, John Rich will sit down with friends and entrepreneurs for his show The Pursuit! which will feature Mike Wolfe from American Pickers for an episode according to Twitter.

So, Mike Rowe will be back in primetime. With the new slate of shows coming to Fox Business, viewers will have a more diverse selection to watch. Tune in on September 20th to catch the new slate of shows.
