Man, there was a time when FoxNews was on all the time in my house. But the slow degradation into pablum culminated on election night 2012 when Megyn Kelly was giggling like a school girl..
I noticed that! Is it true that she was drunk that night?
You said it, karatemom. If not for the excellent "Special Report with Bret Baier" and Greta's show - which - in my opinion has risen to the top of the FNC primetime lineup - I'm not sure we'd watch much of FNC at all anymore.
Tired of O'Bloviator's pre-taped "Me Me Me" shows. Tired of Hannity's shouting-match shows (although he does sometimes have excellent guests, and at least he always used to do his shows live, except for Fridays).
I was watching the Red Sox / TB Rays playoff game on TBS earlier tonight... Missed most of Megyn's show. I did notice she started off with Ted Cruz, assuming that would pull in the usual FNC audience. Extremely disappointing Megyn really is the lefty I always thought she was.
Checked Kelly's show again during commercials - she brought out all her lawyer friends to discuss - ad nauseum - the biker/SUV incident. You've GOT to be kidding.
Then I quickly checked Hannity's new 10pm show during commercials, and noticed he's fully on-board taking the lazy way out - using a pre-taped "studio audience" shouting-match show yet again. So this is Hannity's "new" show, where he gets to leave work early now to spend more time at home. No more live shows apparently.
Of course I forgot to watch Greta at 7pm, as I was watching baseball. Forgot to DVR her show. And of course her show doesn't repeat at 1 AM ET anymore, have to wait for 2 AM (no thank you).
What a colossal disappointment Roger Ailes is. He let Megyn PrettyFace totally screw up what was once a stellar, highly-rated mostly conservative line-up of interesting and entertaining political shows. PrettyFace gets the prime 9pm slot, even though Hannity has been the #2 rated show behind O'Reilly for a decade or so.
If Ailes pulls the plug on "Special Report with Bret Baier" and "On the Record with Greta Van Sustern", hubby and I will say good-bye to FNC. And we've been pretty loyal viewers since Day One. (Well, Day One for our cable system was December 2001).
Please... send out your Tweets and e-mails to FNC! I think our complaints resulted in the demise of Shemp Smith at 7pm. Perhaps we can do the same with Megyn PrettyFace and the new FNC primetime lineup...
