TV Newser ^ | AUG 8,2013 | Chris Ariens

Fox News chairman and CEO Roger Ailes is being interviewed by Neil Cavuto at this hour in California at a 21st Century Fox investors conference.

The first question Cavuto asked was about the rumor, first reported on Drudge Report, that Megyn Kelly will me moving into the 9pmET timeslot this Fall. “Generally, I don’t confirm or deny any rumors, and that is a rumor at the moment,” said Ailes, adding “all of our stars will be back.”

As for Hannity, who currently hosts the 9pm hour, Ailes said, “Hannity is a brand that many of our viewers love and want to see, and, as you know, is one of the nicest guys in the building.”

Ailes did say he’s been having conversations with Shepard Smith about “a new way to deliver news.” This could mean a lot of things, including that Smith’s 7pm timeslot is up for grabs.

I was thinking more of Shep imitating the escape artist that he had on this week being dropped from the sky chained to a coffin!

A new way to deliver news? Like Shep is pregnant with the news? I thought Megyn was the pregnant one....

Being as he’s off almost every Friday, I’m guessing he’s a frequent flyer for three day weekends in Key West.

Hanity needs to spend more time throwing the football with his family.

I have really tired of him.

And how about retiring the Bloviator in the 8 O'clock hour and put in Laura Ingram?

Sounds like Hannity is still in, but Shemp Smith's 7pm ET time slot is up for grabs... we can only hope. ;-)

I still think it might be "Hannity & Kelly" at 9pm.

If Shep stays, but with a “different way to deliver the news”, I hope that means he keeps the drama stuff down to a lower level. When he ( Shep) goes off on those exciting highs , I want to vomit. Harris Falkner does it too. I like her, and she seems smart and with it, but she gets going emotionally, and I want to turn her off.

What a waste of time and bandwidth this guy is. Good news if he is gone from the 7:00 slot.

“I like Kelly, but she’ pretty much a lefty when it comes to social issues..”

She is the perfect vehicle to deliver the GOP elitist message which is why they are moving her to more primary spot. IMO.

How about if Schlepper simply types up his smart-@$$ commentary, wads it up, and "delivers" it into the garbage.

I really hope Hannity is moved to a slot well away from my normal viewing hours. He isn’t as bad an interviewer as O’Reilly, but he’s close. Both of them are always talking over their guests and inserting their own opinions instead of eliciting the usually far more interesting opinions of their guests.

Both are very rude, at least on air, and I wouldn’t miss either of them (Hannity or O’Reilly) if they were to be moved to less conspicuous time slots. I also don’t think either one of them does the conservative cause much good, again because of their rude behavior on air and their inability to treat their guests with respect. (Both of them would deny this, of course, but onscreen it’s quite obvious, especially in the case of O’Reilly.)

I could see Shep both keeping his afternoon show and then making only a cameo news appearance or two in the evening. He seems to get along with Megyn pretty well, so maybe a news summary at the top of her hour, followed by a topical news brief leading into her second half hour.

I don’t see them bumping BOR when he’s at the top of the ratings, but having Laura cohost with the Obnoxious One could be an upgrade at least at the 8:00 hour.

Makes sense to me for Hannity to move his show to 7 and get home to his family at a decent hour.

Sounds a bit cold doesn't it?

Hannity: "I am not a brand, I am a free man!"
Ailes: "HAHAHAHAHAHAH!!"

Judge Jeanine Pirro for a prime slot five days a week. She outclasses them all, IMO. Judge Pirro has more spine and guts then all of DC or Fox News.

You got that right. Every time I think of her I see her on election night skipping across the stage in her little Shirley Temple dress. She was obviously happy with the results. Plus, she talks too fast.

I can definitely agree to moving Shep Smith. He already has 2 shows anyway. I’m not thrilled with him.

More than Shep, I can’t stand Red Eye. Gutfeld is 7th grade. His put-down sidekick Bill is 7th grade. The humor is pretend 7th grade libertarianism.

I like a lot of libertarian ideas; I hate Red Eye. Give that time slot to Smith if they must use him someplace, but dump red eye.

I’d actually prefer to see a Brett Baier re-run in that slot.
