Jesse Watters tipped his hat to his audience on Saturday as he signed off of his final episode of “Watters World” before his world gets “a whole lot bigger” and he takes over the coveted 7 p.m. primetime slot on Fox News with a new show beginning on Jan. 24, “Jesse Watters Primetime”

Although his original namesake show is ending, he confirmed that he will still be co-hosting “The Five” because “Greg [Gutfeld] couldn’t live without [him].”

“If you’ve watched “Watters’ World” from the beginning, as we transitioned from the factory to the studio, you know how much the show’s grown and how much I’ve grown as a host and as a person. I’m not saying I put on weight, which I did for a while, but I lost it — and you’ll notice that in some of the footage we’re about to show you,” Watters reflected. “What I’m saying is, my world has gotten a whole lot bigger.”

“But I really saved myself, and by doing so, made the world around me a better place. Everyone is the master of their own world. You’re responsible for your own thoughts, happiness and success. Everything starts here. The power of positive thinking, big dreams, hard work and good habits will take you anywhere you want … that, and of course, a lot of love,” the 43-year-old news commentator said. “And waking up really early in the morning doesn’t hurt, either.”

“What made this show possible in the beginning was one thing, “The Factor” sent me far and wide throughout the country to interview people from all walks of life and investigate what needed attention. During my travels, I formed an unbreakable connection with the people of this country. And of course, you the audience,” Watters explained.

Watters reflected on the importance of the connections that he made with his audience and fans during the show’s run that spanned from 2015 to 2022.

“This connection with the people is the most important element in my professional career. That’s why when I did my book signings, I promised people they could touch me — just not the hair,” he said jokingly.

“You and I will always know and love each other. We’re patriots and we protect each other. This, right here, is special, and everybody knows it. So before I start to cry, let’s memorialize our weekend run together,” he said with heartfelt passion.

Instead of recapping the week’s newsworthy events, Watters recounted several interviews with prominent politicians including two with former President Donald Trump.

“What is President Obama’s greatest accomplishment, in your opinion?” Watters asked the then-candidate for the 45th presidency of the United States.

“There are none,” Trump said matter of factly.

“I would have also accepted ‘playing a lot of golf,'” Watters’ quipped.

Watters recapped several historic interviews he shared with many others including Dr. Anthony Fauci, podcast host Dan Bongino, red-pilled former Democrat Candace Owens, author and radio host Mark Levin, swoon-worthy Fabio Lanzoni, “Mini AOC” and a then 10-year-old boy that offered to mow the lawn at the White House.

Watters’ existing fans gave him a proper send-off on social media although his viewer base is sure to grow as he widens his audience in his new weeknight spot.

Here’s a sampling of the reactions to his farewell show:
