Monday: Don’t Miss the Premiere of Fox and Friends First
FoxNewsInsider ^ | March 1, 2012 | FOX News

Posted on 03/04/2012 5:51:06 AM PST by SMGFan

Fox News Channel is the first choice of more Americans during daytime, primetime, anytime … and now it starts earlier! Monday at 5a ET, don’t miss the premiere of Fox and Friends First.

It’s your place to catch up on everything that happened while you were asleep – from politics to entertainment to sports, the show will have it all covered. The show’s fourth hour will be anchored by rotating Fox News personalities including Heather Childers, Dave Briggs, Ainsley Earhardt and Heather Nauert among others.

The Insider caught up with Fox and Friends First Executive Producer Lauren Petterson to get her take on what viewers can expect from the show. She said, “From breaking news, politics, business news, human interest, entertainment, sports to weather – we will deliver everything you need to know to start your day and carry you through it.”

Just saw the promo on F&F.

Ainsley irritated me when she was on the weekend and holiday F&F. She had many ‘blond moments’. IIRC, she had a hollywood/entertainment type show for a while on FoxNews, but it didn’t seem to last very long.

I don’t like the regular Fox & Friends- Especially the weekend crew - Twits.
I’ll check it out & see if it’s tolerable.
Thanx for posting.

The Five isn’t watchable - terrible bunch, with the exception of Dana Perino.

Murdoch and Fox can KMA, they’re just a lite version of their despicable network peers, i.e. ABC/CBS/NBC/PBS, and they’re all in the tank for that effin RINO-Romney.

and now it starts earlier! Monday at 5a ET
And when they're done reading the headlines by 5:07a ET (instead of 6:07a ET), they'll be covering the same inane stories as everyone else.
Today, all "news" reporting is little more than watching "Entertainment Tonight."
Even worse, 36 minutes of "bs" per hour, and (most importantly to them) 24 minutes of commercials.

Dana Perino is the moderate on The Five. Beckel is the idiot.

The other three are the best...if you listen.

Perino is a voice for The Establishment and doesn't even bother to hide it!

What bothered me most was not the 'over talking' but what they said - all said - about Newt; who quickly became their 'sport' while they boasted for Mitt. Tired quickly too, of Dana Perino and her RNC-styled, luke warm MO's.

They should give John Bolton the entire time slot. . .

That will not happen, of course. So, in the meantime; and when I do tune in - and 'if' I stay (increasingly unlikely); do like seeing Gregg Guttfield at earlier time at Fox; however; despite his candidate preference.

"time to shed Fox news entirely."

I did, quite a while ago. While I like Steve Doocy and Brian Kilmeade, I can't bring myself to turn it on. I'm a late nighter, and don't get up much before 9 a.m. if I can help it. I used to have my cable box set to tune to Fox News when I turned it on each morning, but I changed that a while back too. I got tired of having the channel come on, and there'd be some clip of Obama speaking, some stupid liberal speaking, a commercial, or they'd be having technical trouble.

Perino thinks she's the smartest one in the room. I honestly don't know why. She's dumb as a brick. Truly. An embarrassment.

I don’t need a comedian & and a guy who used to be on the business channel pretending to be expert on foreign affairs.

Dana has the best qualifications to be on the show.

Ummm, I’m thinking there’s something wrong with you. Maybe you would feel more at home with MSNBC and the Chris Matthews Hardball crew. On his show you will find a diverse bunch of women in looks and dress, ranges from ugly to butt ugly. But, fear not, they all think alike, LOL !

Not so sure:

I took it that you were leveling criticism at FNC for the "measurements" of the hot new hostesses.

I, on the other hand, am awestruck with admiration for Ailes's having made another masterful programming choice!

Dana has the best qualifications to be on the show.

If you think one has to be a former Press Sec. to the POTUS to be "qualified" to be on a daytime talk show, I suggest you should examine your thinking.

Perino is a walking, talking commercial for Romney!

Liz Cheney would be great and makes Perino look like an amateur...but she's too busy doing relevant things to be on a daily talk show.

BTW, The Five is patterned after The View and not supposed to be taken too seriously... IMO.

No, I like Eric Boling and Greg Gutfield. Those two are worth watching, but the others not so much.

Of course Liz Cheney would be better - she has more qualifications than Dana.

I don’t think of it as just another “daytime talk show” like The View. Those people are all Hollywood airheads.
The people of The Five all have college degreees and political or business job histories...with the exception Of Gutfeld (or whatever his name is - talk about trying to appeal to the lowest commmon denominator).

I’m just overall sick of TV. I haven’t watched anything since Friday.

My kitties like it though. I’ll snap it on and turn off the sound. They reach out to the screen and try to touch the figures moving around.

The thing we used to watch together and enjoy was Tom and Jerry at 6:00 a.m. What the cats really enjoyed was all that fast racing around on screen between Tom and Jerry

I agree, Dana did a great job as Bush’s Press Sec....does not make her a good commentator on a news show. She remains shallow and not a deep thinker.

Think about it!

The Five is loosely patterned after The View. Of course they aren't Hollywood entertainers because FOX News IS basically a news channel where ABC is basically entertainment.

Beckel "plays" Hasselbeck...the lone dissenter.

You either "get it" or you don't ...and obviously you don't "get it."

Have a good day!

I turn off,, or switch channels, of any show that pulls that. The Democrat shills are the worst at that. Lanny Davis, Debbie Wasserman Schultz, Gloria Allred, and Alan Colmes are all famous for that.

I’m dreamming about what to plant in my urns and hanging baskets for the summer. I wish that bouganvilla (spelling) would survive around here.

I enjoy the Five, but original thinking? You have exceptionally high expectations.

Have you noticed that you read articles and thoughts here on FR and then you hear them three to five days later on Beck, Rush, and Drudge?

The best in original thought can be found one FR and on other fringe web sites. You will never find them on TV.

Silly you......// just having fun. Nothing Personal.
