Skip to comments.The 10 Best Conservative Replacements For Glenn Beck’s Fox News Slot
Posted on 04/11/2011 9:08:28 AM PDT by TheHawksNest
Since the announcement that Glenn Beck is leaving Fox News, conspiracy theories abound. We may never know the whole story or the details behind the split but what we can do is wildly speculate who is going to take his place. The most important thing Fox News president Roger Ailes should keep in mind is whoever takes Becks time slot has to be someone who makes the Left put their full-blown moonbattery on display. It must be someone who pushes all the right buttons and enrages leftists, causing them to picket and boycott and all the other fun and hilarious things they do when confronted by conservative truth-tellers.
The thing Ill miss most about Beck being gone is the reaction from all the statist twerps who hate him with a frenzy that can only be compared to neurotic miniature poodles who pee on the carpet when overexcited. Ailes should focus like a laser on replacing Beck with only the most hated personality he can find. Not only will it keep the ratings up, but it will provide sane people with fantastic entertainment. The following are 10 suggestions for conservative hosts sure to make the Left angrier (and funnier) than they already are.
10. We Have Lesbians Too, Only Ours Are Prettier: Meet Tammy Bruce
Nothing infuriates the Left more than a traitor, and Tammy Bruce is a pretty big traitor. Bruce is a lesbian, a former NOW chapter president, and lifelong Democrat. Then she saw the light when she realized that individuals arent welcome on the Left. Group-think is a requirement and Bruce isnt a team player. Shes been one of the most popular conservative talk-show hosts and a best-selling author ever since. She loves to tweak the Left and isnt afraid to say unpopular things.

This strikes me as a pipe dream list, but my favorite suggestion is Mark Steyn. I like the suggestion of Breitbart for the liberal heads that would explode every day, but I think even he would admit he's too scatterbrained to carry a show.
lol who can replace beck
Steyn is certainly the guy I’d most like to see on television. I work and don’t listen to Rush or his fill-ins, I only know Steyn from his writing, which is brilliant.
That would be a good one to add to the list.
Mark Steyn. Period.
CERTAINLY not Tammy Bruce.
I’ll be taking my television to the range after Beck’s last show...
Please Please Don’t give the fag Shep another hour. And please no more whorealdo.
What makes you think it won’t be Juan Williams who gets Beck’s hour?
What makes you think it wont be Juan Williams who gets Becks hour?Like I said, this strikes me as a pipe dream list. Sadly, Williams is probably more likely than any of these options.
Mark Steyn definately. I enjoy it when he takes over for Rush. He’s a riot.
If Steyn got the job, I'd actually try to figure out how to record TV shows for later viewing.
Steyn gets my vote. Bruce would be all right too.
Laura Ingraham and Mark Steyn..... not at the same time but they take turns hosting it. Mark lives in rural New Hampshire so a suitable broadcast studio would have to be found near him. But I could see him broadcasting from Boston or NYC sometimes since any guests he has aren’t going to rural NH for an appearance
They forgot the GREAT one, Mark Levin!!
John Stossel could be added to the list. Seasoned pro and nice-guy Libertarian who could, IMHO, attract an even bigger audience than Beck.
The O’Keefe video had me ROFL!
Bingo!!!the first 20 minutes of his show each nite is the single best political monologue you can find anywheres...the other Mark, Steyn..would be OK also..hey..how about alternating them...?
Practical choices - Steyn, Bruce, or Miller... All are OK with me
The rankings are WAY off, and the selections are far from perfect. Where’s Mark Levin?
Nevertheless and regardless of all competition, Mark Steyn hands down. He’s a true egghead/polymath, more than capable of beating the pseudo-intellectuals on the left in any game, great on his feet, attractive, and incredibly easy on the ears.
I agree. Mark Steyn!
I agree. Mark Steyn!
I agree. Mark Steyn!
When you hear him, it's hard to stop laughing. He's the wittiest person I have ever heard. Just charming. His writing has more of a nasty British bite to it because you can't hear him chuckling and chortling.
Agree he points out many facts too.
The Howard Beale Show!
Lou Dobbs will get the spot. He is already hired on Fox Business
Rush, Dennis Prager, Mark Levin, or Larry Elder..
No! Not Steyn! His writing is great, but when he hosts a show, he spends most of the airtime laughing uncontrollably at his own jokes. Quite irritating.
Mark Levin would be great, but he loves the bunker and wouldn’t want to be on live tv. I love Mark Steyn when he goes on about the Lone Ranger. Hilarious.
I like her but don't know that she'd be great on tv.
Well after everybody decides on a conservative replacement I would like to see at a different hour the Donal Trump Show.
And every day he deconstructs Obama all the way from his grandparents on the American side possibly selling B-29 secrets to the Russians all the way to the Kenya side about his birthplace.
There is some John Stossel buzz right now, and I’m getting it from the same person who predicted his leaving CNN a few months prior to his moving to Fox.
I don’t believe that Beck can be replaced.
I will NEVER watch Juan Williams.... frankly, I consider him to be an AA hire and too stupid to bother listening to.
Heck, just give the time slot to Cindy Sheehan and J. Jackson. Call it the “Lib Hour”.
Perhaps we could just have a Muslim prayer hour with weekly education on Sharah law.
I like Doyle, but he’s sounding more and more like Michael Savage these days. He’s much more vitriolic about ALL Republicans than he is about almost any Democrats, except maybe Harry Reid. He absolutely deplores Fox News and anyone connected with it. I could understand that, except for the fact that I never hear Jerry tear into the likes of, say, Chris Matthews or Anderson Cooper.
It seems that Doyle’s so hellbent on separating himself from those commentators he deems to be “Republican water carriers”, that it gets harder to tell him apart from someone as insane as, oh, Keith Olbermann. Actually, come to think ot if, I’m finding even Michael Savage is less biased against conservatives these days than is Jerry Doyle...and that’s saying a lot.
This may not be greeted with cheers on FR, but on radio, the very best interviewer in the business is Hugh Hewitt. Though his jokes are very lame.
Dennis Miller would rock.
Sure hope that’s true. Better still, RIF O’Gasbag and give The Judge a two hour show! FNC is certainly not what it used to be. FBC has the folks I watch. Eric Bolling is also a good bet if the Judge doesn’t want to double down.
A better question is: “Who should take BOR’s place on the new Beck News Network?”
Mark Steyn gets my vote.
I do not think Mark Steyn would do a daily show..a man of many talents
Trump’s “The Apprentice, The White House Version”
Every one of the individuals would be fine. How about a weekly with five total host, each on a regular given night?
