Hannity and Colmes split up
Politico ^ | Michael Calderone

Posted on 11/24/2008 1:46:22 PM PST by mockingbyrd

Fox News announced that after 12 years, Alan Colmes will be leaving the top-rated "Hannity & Colmes" at the end of the year. “I approached Bill Shine (FNC’s Senior Vice President of Programming) earlier this year about wanting to move on after 12 years to develop new and challenging ways to contribute to the growth of the network," Colmes said in a statement. "Although it’s bittersweet to leave one of the longest marriages on cable news, I’m proud that both Sean (Hannity) and I remained unharmed after sitting side by side, night after night for so many years.” Sean Hannity said Colmes was "a remarkable co-host," "great friend," and "skillful debate partner.” Colmes will remain a Fox commentator, and continue hosting "The Alan Colmes Show" on Fox News Radio. Also, he's developing a weekend show.

He will not be missed, but I just wonder who they have up their sleeve to replace him!

Fox can’t just have a Hannity show. And I couldn’t stand an hour of the radio show reitterated with different guests.

I would like Fox to put Al Franken or Al Gore on across from Sean. Their both self proclaimed “smart people.”

They could call it “All Hannity” as it was with Alan.

The Alan Colmes radio show...now there’s a sop to the Fairness Doctrine.

Good riddance. I may start watching the TV show again depending on what lib they use to replace the Fly.

I can no longer listen to Hannity's radio show.

It's always the same and is getting to be boring most of the time.

I really like him as a person, and love his specials on FNC but can't say the same thing for his radio show.

He will probably be taking a position to help out with the “fairness doctrine”...

Colmes was just another affirmative action liberal. I doubt his little radio show will last much longer, unless the “fairness doctrine” mandates it be left on the air.

Can you imagine being Alan Colmes? Looking at your ratings sheets once a week?

God, how it must suck being Alan Colmes.

I heard that they were transferring Colmes to O’Reilly’s show and will call it “Colmes and O’Reilly”......

My problem with Colmes is that he says all that crap and you know he doesn’t really believe it but has to mouth it because he is the token liberal on Fox.

My wife always said Colmes looked like he had a funny smell about him.... lol...... Colmes is a punching bag... The show would be smart to get somebody tough on the other end of Hannity....

How bout Hannity and Olberman... Although it would most likely diverge into physical fights every night it would be entertaining...

At least Colmes could be entertaining. Hannity is unbearable to watch or listen to.

Are there any cute female liberals out there? A pretty female foil would do Hannity, and my eyesight, some good.

For the sake of maintaining diversity, keeping things fair and balanced, won't they have to hire another pansy?

Kirsten Powers maybe? Problem is, she doesn't seem like she has enough killer instinct to go head to head with Hannity.

I like Kirsten too. She’s not a foaming at the mouth moonbat and can occasionaly be reasoned with. She’s attarctive and well spoken, everything that Alan Colmes is not.

Glenn Beck has a show on FOX starting January, but they have never said what time slot. I guess this is all part of a larger shuffle taking place.

There's some. But they're too vapid and vacuous to debate Hann.... Oh, wait. What am I saying. Hannity doesn't debate he proselytizes with sentences full of "you knows" and "I means".

Problem is, sitting her next to Hannity is like sitting a lamb next to a T-Rex. Hannity basically has two settings: Attack and Decimate. I think she may not be up to verbally slapping Hannity around the way Colmes could. It just wouldn't be fair.

Maybe my perception of her is wrong, but she doesn't seem to be the bare knuckled fighter that Hannity is.

EXACTLY what I was thinking. She is the perfect replacement. I think that would be exciting. Although I often disagree with her positions, she does articulate the left positions in a linear many times thoughtful manner. Sometimes with a certain sense of objectivity which I like. Of course even though I am a woman it is not lost on me that she is also hot looking and much better eye candy. Sorry Alan :-).

I hope the replacement isn’t Bob Beckle.

Kirsten: When she first showed up a few times on FNC, she sounded sloshed and exhibited typical lib-type symptoms.

H & C gets real good rating with Colmes who is a total jerk. Gotta believe it could do better with a personable lib instead of the undesirable Colmes.

Oh yeeeaaaah! You could get some of those Springer bouncers in there to charge onstage when things go to fist city. Lots of bleeping this and bleepin' that. Heck, he has Springer on as a guest sometimes, get him as Executive Producer and let him show them how to do it right.

Perhaps they could entice Olberman to join the team. They could call it “Hannity and Butt-Munch”. Just a thought.
