Posted on 08/10/2013 6:31:34 AM PDT by SeekAndFind
If losing his prime-time show to Megyn Kelly is rattling Sean Hannity, he isnt showing it.
Hannity weighed in on the report of Kellys move to the Fox News 9 p.m. prime-time block during his radio show, saying hes very happy with the way things are turning out, and that it has no negative implications for his career.
Lets just say in the end Im very happy. Thats all I can say at this point, he said Thursday.
Its pretty funny. I love people speculating, Hannity said. Because everybody thinks they know everything and they dont.
He also preempted criticism from those who might suggest the move had anything to do with him being a right wing nut job.
If I wasnt hated, I wouldnt be doing my job now would I? he said.
Megyn Kelly is all hype and dull bad move by fox.
Hannity is one of the very strongest Fox hosts.
I somehow don’t think he’s headed toward any sort of demotion.
I don’t have any inside information, just going on instinct.
I’d not worry about Hannity.
So, is Sean getting another slot, or is he being dumped by Fox?
He says he loves people speculating.
Kelly is a lefty on social issues. As far as ‘hot’..? I can sit on a bench in downtown Greenville, SC on a warm summer night and watch dozens of women just as hot walking to and fro...and I don’t have to pay for cable. :-)
I’d say Megyn is NOT GUILTY.....
I agree its a bad decision. Megyn is not an opinion host. She just brings others onto her show to argue, and reports the news Shep-style.
Who wants to watch that at prime time? I’d rather watch the Bloviator than have a Shepster repeat. BREAKING NEWS!: We’re going to report on the same thing we’ve been reporting on all day!
I can’t stand her, just smug as all hell.
I don’t have cable or any tv anymore, but when I did I often watched FOX’s lineup. My guess: Sean gets Mr. Mascara’s slot at 7 p.m. EST. Radio from 3 - 6, tv from 7 - 8 and he’s home at a decent hour. He’s probably happy about this.
Megyn Kelly will win her time slot (who in their right mind would rather look at Maddow than Megyn) but it won’t be Hannity numbers.
RE: So who is this Megyn Kelly?
Excerpts From Wikipedia:
She is a news anchor on the Fox News Channel. Kelly previously hosted America Live on weekdays from the networks New York City headquarters. Prior to that, she co-hosted America’s Newsroom along with Bill Hemmer. Since 2007, the two have hosted Fox News Channel’s New Year’s Eve special every year.
Kelly contributed legal segments for Special Report with Brit Hume and hosted her own legal segment, “Kelly’s Court,” during Weekend Live. She appears on a weekly segment on The O’Reilly Factor and occasionally filled in for Greta Van Susteren on On the Record in the past. Most of her reporting focused on legal and political matters. At this time she occasionally contributed as an anchor but she was often stationed as a substitute anchor, mostly on the weekends.
Kelly’s “America Live” program has been up 20% in total viewers (averaging 1,293,000) and up 4% in the 2554 demographic (averaging 268,000).
Kelly received media attention for her coverage of the results of the 2012 United States presidential election. On November 6, the night of the election, Fox News projected that Obama would win a second term after part of the results had been released. In response to Karl Rove’s opposition to this projection, Kelly asked Rove, “Is this just math that you do as a Republican to make yourself feel better? Or is this real?”
Kelly left as host of America Live in the beginning of July 2013 for maternity leave and will move to FNC’s prime time schedule after she returns in the fall of 2013. She is expected to take the 9:00 p.m. time slot.
I vote: Kill Bill.
Or truncate Schlepper and put O-really on at 7:00.
If the goberment had not shut down tv I might have watched more. It is football season so I will fire up the tv for my one station. I still like Hannity best. Megyn, comb your hair.
This is going to hurt Greta’s ratings. Instead of enduring an hour of Megan Kelly, I predict newshounds will go online to opine on Free Republic.
Megan Kelly is certainly easy on the eyes and I can’t dislike a good Irish girl.
A little goes a long way.
I can't stand that stupid football!
