Tucker gleefully jokes that his future plans are 'appetizers plus entree' after exit from Fox

"I haven’t eaten dinner with my wife on a weeknight in seven years," Carlson said.

In the days since Tucker Carlson was fired, there has been much speculation regarding what the iconic host would do with his post-Fox News life. While he has received a number of offers to work for other conservative outlets, Carlson appears to be in no rush to return to television.

Instead, he has taken advantage of the extra time he now has to spend with his wife and four children at their multi-million dollar estate in Florida.

Chatting with a reporter from the Daily Mail, Carlson proved that despite the less than desirable send-off from Fox, he was living his best life.

"Retirement is going great so far," he said with a smile as he stepped out the door of his $5.5 million Boca Grande beach house.

Carlson, who hosted Tucker Carlson Tonight at 8 pm EST nearly every Monday through Friday since 2017, lamented the fact that it often meant spending less time with his family.

"I haven’t eaten dinner with my wife on a weeknight in seven years," he said. "Appetizers plus entree!"

Before reporters could get Carlson to dive deeper into his termination, he jumped into a golf cart and drove off into the sunset.

On Monday, news broke that Fox had agreed to "part ways" with its most popular host. The network offered no further explanation, leading many to question what Carlson had done to get on the wrong side of boss Rupert Murdoch, who reportedly made the decision himself.

Fox has not yet named a replacement for Carlson, revealing only that, "Fox News Tonight will air live at 8 PM/ET ... as an interim show helmed by rotating Fox News personalities until a new host is named."

The network has suffered as a result of Carlson's departure, losing $1 billion in market value and facing a potential exodus of subscribers, many of whom said they only paid in because of Carlson.
