Laura Ingraham, the radio host and Fox News commentator, is about to become a prime time host on the conservative cable network. Ingraham is expected to take over the 10 p.m. hour on Fox News, according to people who spoke on condition of anonymity. While there may be one or two final details to negotiate, Ingraham has been telling friends that the deal is essentially done, the sources said. Her new show will be part of a broader change to the network´s top-rated prime time lineup. Sean Hannity´s show, currently at 10 p.m., will move one hour earlier to 9
Comments: Not confirmed yet. Hannity would move to earlier slot time slot.
Since FNC has been kicking CNN in ratings can since when God was a kid, you´d think perhaps CNN might figure out that maybe if they thought that way about their programming, they might start out drawing the Nick Jr. cartoon reruns.
Fox is accustomed to winning every hour of every day, thanks to its incredibly loyal right-leaning audience, so the shifting of Hannity may be an attempt to fortify the 9 p.m. time slot.
That incredibly loyal right-leaning audience is not going to last if the younger Murdochs keep leaning left and refusing to stand by their hosts in the face of all of these false allegations. They´ll end up being like the NFL with half empty stadiums.
Fox placed the five back at five O´clock? Who runs this network.? Who named a show the specialists? Who fired Bolling & O´Reilly? Who kept pushing Hannity´s show back & forth? Who hired Kate, Eboni, Juan Wms, Geraldo, Dana, Shep, Bob Beckley, Ezekiel, Who pushed Hannity back & pushed Megyn Kelly in?Sorry I´ll pass on Fox, they lost me during the presidential election. At one time Fox had a great network with great people.
they put Eric Bolling through all that hell and now he is going through a far worse tribulation, having lost his precious son -
so, Fox News is SO worried about Eric Bolling and some pictures texted on his phone but they won´t even stand up for him -
and why didn´t these women come out with their complaints back when all the other things were being discussed at Fox (most notably, Gretchen Carlson and Roger Ailes) - why were they silent?
Aren´t you supposed to report it when someone has sexually harassed you in the workplace so that they are not enabled to continue their pattern of abuse? You´re not supposed to wait until that to see if you might possibly get your own show or some other reward for silence.
So, Fox News did this to Eric Bolling
Meanwhile, Kimberly Guilfoyle was on there again today with what I think I would call a hair-bra -
she has the two front sides of her hair grown long and full (maybe they are extensions) and they are draped on either side of her bust, like apostrophes or would you say, brackets?
Ah, then of course at the end of the show, they had some thoughtful things to say about Eric -
five people purportedly intelligent people and not one of you can see where all this is going?
Tomorrow - stay tuned - let´s see what dress Kimberly Guilfoyle wears with her hair-bra
Does anybody remember Laura´s first disastrous attempt at a show on Fox? It was at 50 and lasted just a few weeks in 2008. Leaked videos showed her as a vicious harridan. I´ve quit listening to her radio show and I´ll pass on her new show.
Although I love her commentaries on Fox, she substituted for Tucker and was quite unwatchable. Unless she improves her delivery, this will not end well for her. She was manic at times and abrasive. Hopefully, she will settle down and learn to speak with a less strident tone. She makes excellent points but if she is not watchable, they get lost. She definitely has the knowledge. She needs to work on her delivery. A speech coach would help to tone down the nasal quality to her voice.
To the posters who comment on her manic, nasal voice:
She is from Connecticut (as is Ann Coulter), and that is her style. It works MUCH better on radio than TV (although I find her very attractive to look at). As noted, an over-the-top delivery style doesn´t work for long on TV. The occasional guest host spot works well, but long-term it could be a turn-off.
I wonder if she will keep her radio show, since she is a single mom with 2 (or 3?) adopted kids to take care of. This would be a long work day.
I would like Lisa Boothe and Trish Regan to combine to have a new show. I think Ingraham will need some sort of partner. The Five will obviously go back to 5 PM. I think this move is more to get Hannity at 9 PM.
Laura Ingraham is far too confrontational and strident to be watchable on a regular basis. She´s worse than O´Reilly for interrupting and arguing. Tucker Carlson argues, but in a way that isn´t a turnoff.
Well... I guess it will be interesting. I dunno, I stopped watching Fox after they made the big programming changes. FNC is on the ropes and needs to do something. I don´t think this is a bad move... yet. Ratings will tell, but frankly if Fox News is going to do something meaningful, they need to get rid of Rupert´s little Rat-Baggers who are making MSNBC look good!
I like Laura but don´t record any outtakes. She must have convinced Fox of no more meltdowns. She can be hard to work with. She´s known for going through the most producers in the business. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=q3lCfHtaR30
I´m going to have a very hard time forgiving FOX for the way they treated Eric Bolling. IF they had produced NAMES AND PROOF of the accusations against him, I would have been ok with it. But to treat him that way, which it looks like indirectly could have caused his son´t suicide is unforgivable! He and his wife will never recover. Right now I´m hating FOX!
No I don´t like her body language when she goes on the attack. I quit listening to her radio show because of her rants and her appearances on shows when she telegraphs with her lower jaw going slack before the response and cuts people off like BO would do. I haven´t viewed Fox since the debates and I thank Megyn Kelley for that I´ll remain removed from all television news including Fox. Fox Business in the early morning and I´m done for the day.
I think it´s a great move and will be watching. Don´t believe the bitter Never Trumper´s excuses, they loathe Laura because she supports President Trump and said mean things about that dolt Romney after he blew it in 2012.
Like others here, I greatly reduced watching Fox News after the Megyn fiasco, the start of The Five, the promotion of Perino and Stirewalt (how snarky can one get?), etc. I like Tucker, but we all know the Left is hypocritical, etc. so I don´t need to be reminded of it. Martha has her moments but I primarily watch Lou Dobbs at 7pm - although how much Ed Rollins can one watch? I do miss Greta though.
I Like Laura and feel she has grown since her early days in broadcasting. Even her voice has improved with seasoning. If this is going to be another political talk show...it´s doomed. There needs to be a hook or something different about it. Please no more panels. How about making it all conservative.
In the past couple of years political talk shows and cable 24 hour news has lost it´s luster. No need to know when so predictable and repetitive. I would rather read a book, watch a movie or go on Lucianne.
Because of birth-order, I will usually suspect something which LOOKS like it´ll be good for me at first. What if the new owners want to help her to fail at this slot in order to prove their demented point?
Then she either opened her eyes or began compromising her stands to soften more towards the call of the RINOs.
I admire the fight she put up against W Bush´s amnesty call. It failed, only to be given the "end around" by Nobama and his illegal CACA plan for illegals.
We are not finding old clips of Hitlery and Bubba defending the idea of border security that had been somehow "forgotten" since the new focus on giving illegals 20-somethings amnesty came into fashion.
Good Luck to her, but Fox has walked away from where I want to spend my time. Others watch it religiously, like people drawn to the Weather Channel to see destruction and devastation and being pushed aside for discussion of how we are being taken away from important things by RAKE news.
I was an early watcher of The Five when it aired at 5. But I quickly tired of Juan Williams and his pathetic facial expressions and almost always disagreed with his position on issues. Also quickly tired of Dana´s constant chatter about her dog. Still love Gutfeld, but the rest of the crew turned me off forever.
A 19-year-old man who spent 60 hours locked alone inside a gated southern Indiana cave says he feels lucky to be alive. Indiana University freshman Lukas Cavar was on a spelunking trip to Sullivan Cave when he became separated Sunday afternoon from 12 other members of the university´s Caving Club. (Snip) Dressed in light clothes, hiking boots and a helmet, Cavar had a plastic bag, two energy bar wrappers, two empty water bottles, a cellphone and a wallet. He used the energy bar wrappers to collect moisture and the water bottles to collect rainfall and puddled cave water. Cavar also
MADISON, Wis. — One by one, Confederate monuments are coming down from their perches in front of courthouses, in public squares, along city boulevards. Now opponents to the memorials are looking through cemetery gates for more. (Snip) The calls to remove the monument in Madison, and other monuments like it, have given rise to questions of the place of Confederate memorials and cemeteries in daily life: Is a monument in a cemetery really on public display? Though most people rarely enter cemeteries, are their contents — statues, monuments and plaques — subject to scrutiny by people in the community? While
SAN FRANCISCO — San Francisco is suing five of the world´s largest oil and gas companies for the costs of sea walls and other infrastructure needed to protect against climate change. The lawsuit filed Tuesday in California court accuses the companies of ignoring warnings that fossil fuels would cause catastrophic global warming and mounting campaigns to discredit climate change science. It says the companies have created a public nuisance. The neighboring city of Oakland filed a separate, but similar suit. The five companies include Chevron, Exxon Mobil and ConocoPhillips. Chevron said in a statement that it welcomes
Democratic candidates considering a run for president in 2020 will have to make their case early to voters on the liberal Left Coast, if officials in key western states get their way. Officials in California, Oregon and Washington are taking steps to move their presidential primary contests toward the front of the nominating calendar. They say they want voters in their states to have more influence over the candidates the two parties will nominate, and holding earlier contests is key to expanding that influence. (Snip) Not every California Democrat is enthusiastic about giving their voters a bigger say. Some Democrats
Democrats are worried that the fight between former presidential nominee Hillary Clinton and Sen. Bernie Sanders (I-Vt.) is doing lasting damage to their party. As the bickering between the former rivals grows more intense, Democrats say it needs to end. "It reiterates that our party is still led by people with fatal flaws," said one former senior Obama administration official. Another former Obama official added, "It´s like watching two children bickering." The only winner from the infighting, they say, is the Republican president. "Donald Trump must love the backbiting between Sanders and Clinton,"
While promoting her newly released memoir, Hillary Clinton has placed blame on several factors for her loss to Donald Trump last November — from her own mistakes, to Russian interference in the U.S. election, and the late intervention by then-FBI director James Comey. But Clinton has also spoken candidly about how deep-rooted sexism played a hand in her defeat, and about the double standards she faced as the first woman nominated by a major party for president in America’s 240-year history. In an interview with the New York Times published Saturday, Clinton spoke further about how misogyny is used as
After violent protests erupted in St. Louis Friday night, U2 has announced they´ve canceled a Saturday night performance in the city. The St. Louis Metropolitan Police Department said 32 people were arrested when protesters took to the streets after a white former police officer, Jason Stockley, was acquitted earlier that day in the 2011 fatal shooting of Lamar Smith, a black man. St. Louis Circuit Judge Timothy Wilson found Stockley not guilty of first-degree murder and armed criminal action for the Dec. 20, 2011 incident, in which Stockley shot Smith five times after a high-speed chase and crash. In a
Michelle Rounds, the ex-wife of comedian Rosie O´Donnell, has died in an apparent suicide. She was 46. Rounds died at her home on Monday, TMZ reported. O´Donnell confirmed Rounds´ death in a statement to the celebrity gossip website. "I am saddened to hear about this terrible tragedy. Mental illness is a very serious issue affecting many families," O´Donnell told TMZ. "My thoughts and prayers go out to Michelle´s family, her wife and their child." Rounds´ mother also shared a statement encouraging people to donate to the National Suicide Prevention. "If anyone would like to give to the National Suicide Prevention it
TALLINN - Nearly one third of European Union states backed a plan to tax digital multinationals on their turnover, France said on Friday, as the EU weighs a range of other measures to increase the tax bill of companies like Google and Amazon. The moves are part of a growing campaign in the EU to claim tax revenues that online giants are accused of skirting by routing most of their profits to low tax rate states, like Ireland and Luxembourg. "The digital economy should be taxed as the rest of the economy," the EU commissioner for taxation, Pierre Moscovici, told
CNN host Anthony Bourdain joked in an interview with TMZ that he would poison President Trump if given the opportunity to cook for him and North Korean dictator Kim Jong-un. "If Trump and Kim Jong-un were going to have a bit of a summit to try and mend relations and they wanted you to cater, what would you serve?" asked a TMZ reporter. "Hemlock," Bourdain deadpanned. Hemlock is defined as "a drug or lethal drink prepared from the poison hemlock" that has been used as an execution method. The 61-year-old host of CNN´s weekly food and travel series, "Parts Unknown," later told Fox
Hillary Clinton told CNN on Wednesday that it is time to abolish the Electoral College, part of a sweeping interview where the former Democratic nominee sought to explain why she lost the 2016 election. Clinton, in the interview with CNN´s Anderson Cooper, displayed her animus for fired FBI Director James Comey, reflected on her love for the people -- namely former President Bill Clinton -- who helped her get through the crushing loss and blasted the arcane election body that she believes helped Donald Trump win the presidency. "I think it needs to be eliminated," Clinton said of the Electoral
Five people including a mother and son are accused in an elaborate scheme to defraud a fund set up to aid Gatlinburg wildfire victims. Debra Kay Catlett, her son, Chad Alan Chambers, and three associates - Rocco Boscalia, Ammie Lyons and Esther Pridemore - are charged in a sealed presentment handed up by a Sevier County grand jury earlier this year with a conspiracy to defraud the Dollywood Foundation´s My People Fund. Entertainer and Sevier County native Dolly Parton established the fund soon after last year´s wildfires that claimed 14 lives and destroyed thousands of homes and businesses. David Dotson, president of
Sen. John McCain (R-Ariz.) announced on Friday that he will vote against the latest GOP effort to repeal ObamaCare, potentially dooming the legislation. “I cannot in good conscience vote for the Graham-Cassidy proposal. I believe we could do better working together, Republicans and Democrats, and have not yet really tried," he said in a statement, referring to the legislation spearheaded by GOP Sens. Lindsey Graham (S.C) and Bill Cassidy (La.). McCain´s announcement leaves GOP leadership with no room for error.
The Senate’s top Democrat offered praise for Sen. John McCain (R-Ariz.) after he said he would oppose the latest ObamaCare repeal bill, which narrows the chance that Republicans can get the legislation to President Trump’s desk. “John McCain shows the same courage in Congress that he showed when he was a naval aviator,” Senate Minority Leader Chuck Schumer (D-N.Y.) said an hour after McCain’s statement. “I have assured Senator McCain that as soon as repeal is off the table, we Democrats are intent on resuming the bipartisan process.” McCain is the second Republican, after Sen. Rand Paul (Ky.), to announce
If NFL fans continue to turn away from football, the TV networks could lose as much as $200 million in earnings, according to a new report. After ratings for Week Two crashed, adding to the angst already felt by a poor showing in Week 1, industry insiders and analysts are sounding the alarm. A new report claims that CBS, ESPN, Fox and NBC could take a $200 million hit to their estimated $2.5 billion in NFL advertising earnings if fans continue to turn off the TV, the The Hollywood Reporter noted recently. The worries over earnings are not allayed by
A new fifth grade teacher at Canopy Oaks Elementary is asking students to use gender-neutral pronouns in the classroom. Math and science teacher Chloe Bressack sent the request home in a letter to parents headlined "About Mx. Bressack." “... my pronouns are ´they, them, their´ instead of ´he, his, she, hers.´ I know it takes some practice for it to feel natural,” the letter reads, “but students catch on pretty quickly.” The letter also asks that students use “Mx.," (pronounced ´Mix´) when addressing the teacher rather than Mr. or Ms. The note alarmed some parents. In a post written Tuesday night in the Facebook group
ABC has greenlit a new sitcom tentatively titled "Sanctuary Family" about an undocumented family living in the U.S. The network says the show will follow the pandemonium that unfolds when a married couple allows their undocumented nanny and her family to live with them. The guests put a strain on the marriage of the host family but they eventually learn that “the differences both families have aren’t as significant as their similarities,” according to the description provided by ABC. Undocumented immigrants are foreign-born people who don’t have a legal right to be or remain in the United States and the
Late-night host Jimmy Kimmel used his opening monologue Thursday to once again lambast supporters of the Graham-Cassidy health care bill -- and at one point called a Republican senator from Louisiana an "inbred." The host of ABC´s “Jimmy Kimmel Live” has emerged as a strong celebrity advocate for universal health care since his infant son had to undergo open-heart surgery in April. Kimmel made an announcement about his son during a memorable monologue at the time and has taken up the cause ever since. Part of his goal is for every child in the U.S. to have the same access to
Michelle Obama said in a speech Thursday that the White House is currently being led by fear, comparing President Trump´s administration with her husband and former President Obama´s administration. (Snip) “It isn’t just us first,” she said, referring to Trump´s "America first" policies. “We live in a big country and a big world," she said. "You can’t just want to help someone in a hurricane and not make sure they can go to the doctor when they’re sick.” Trump reiterated his "America first" doctrine in a speech to the United Nations General Assembly this week, emphasizing that America would put
The San Francisco 49ers Thursday night game against the Los Angeles Rams kicked off in front of a nearly empty stadium. Los Angeles Times reporter Lindsey Thiry tweeted a photo at the time of kickoff, which showed thousands of open seats. In fact, most sections in the photo have more empty seats than fans. (Tweet/Photo/Video) ESPN’s Darren Rovell reported that 63,500 tickets had been sold for the game, but of course, simply selling a ticket doesn’t mean the buyer will actually show up to the game. It’s hard to believe there are more than 30,000 people in the stadium, judging
Former First Lady Michelle Obama has spoken about what life was like for her and her family during her eight years in The White House. Her candid comments came during a moderated discussion at a tech conference in Salt Lake City, Utah on Thursday evening. ´It´s like being shot out of a cannon while drinking from a fire hydrant blind,´ she explained as she told of how she got used to her new way of living. ´You have to tell The White House what kind of toilet paper you like. You don´t know where your forks are.´ (Photos) Mrs Obama
Democratic Rep. John Lewis said Thursday he sometimes feels like “taking a bullwhip” to people in order to make them care about civil rights. “It doesn’t matter whether they’re black, or white, Latino, Asian-American or Native American. When you see something that’s not right, not fair, not just, you have an obligation to do something, to say something. They’re just too darn quiet. I really wanna use some other words sometimes,” Lewis told the audience of the Congressional Black Caucus Foundation Town Hall on Civil Rights in Washington, D.C. “I believe in the philosophy and the discipline of nonviolence, but sometimes
A team of four current and former NFL players is lobbying commissioner Roger Goodell to engage the league in fighting for the cause of social justice, even asking him to formally designate November as activism awareness month. Current players Michael Bennett (Seattle Seahawks), Torrey Smith (Philadelphia Eagles), and Malcolm Jenkins (Philadelphia Eagles), along with former player Anquan Boldin, sent Goodell and another executive a 2,800-word memorandum in August requesting the league invest significant resources in the cause. The memo, available in full here, is specific and thoughtful, but its requests would almost certainly prove divisive among fans, many of whom are
Lawrence O’Donnell had a really bad night on August 29, 2017.We draw that conclusion based on the above clip obtained by Mediaite, showing behind the scenes footage of a furious O’Donnell absolutely going bananas in what appear to be breaks in his show.The video, which lasts a full eight minutes, is a collection of clips from one evening (given O’Donnell’s consistent outfit) and show the MSNBC anchor fuming about earpiece malfunctions, blasting off obscenities and screaming at his staff. We were able to link it back to the August 29 show. After introducing a clip about President Donald Trump, O’Donnell pauses,
