Television host, Billy Bush is set to make his return to television tonight after a three-year hiatus following his 2016 termination from Today. Bush was fired from the NBC morning show in 2016 after a recorded conversation between Bush and Donald Trump during a 2005 taping of Access Hollywood revealed lewd remarks about women.

Bush, 47, was a longtime host of Access Hollywood and Access Hollywood Live appearing as either a host or co-host from 2001 to 2016. The recording of Trump, from the set of Days of Our Lives, captured the future president suggesting that his celebrity status granted him special access to beautiful women.

The article goes on to state the following:

Bush, the nephew of President George H.W. Bush and first cousin of President George W. Bush, can be heard on the recording encouraging Trump, something he later attributed to immature “locker room talk.”

The report states that Bush “is slated to make his return to the Fox network as host of the retooled Extra, which will focus on celebrity stories and interviews,” and will premier on Tuesday evening across Fox’s local affiliates.
