Yes, I was looking forward to watching FoxNewsWatch after the Journal Report last Saturday, and it was replaced by a news program. And they replace it with Howie Kurtz on Sunday morning?

Greta is libertarian and interviews very fairly.... she has a Rush excerpt on almost nightly; and has Jason Chaffetz and Trey Gowdy as frequent guests, as well as Pat Smith, the grieving mother of the late Sean Smith.

I will continue to watch Greta and some of Hannity.

O’Reilly can KMA and I can’t stand Megyn Kelly.

Thank God for FR!!!!

I learn more from everyday FReepers than I could ever learn by watching Fox....or any of the rest of the alphabets.

I find ‘some’ FReepers to be extremely intelligent and knowledgeable, EVEN those that I disagree with.

Again, Thank God for Free Republic....and for Jim whatshisname!!! ;>)

Greta is great!

She is one of the BEST interviewers on Fox!

I agree! When Greta sticks to politics and government waste, her show is often better than Hannity's and O'Reilly's combined.

We'll be DVR'ing Greta's show at 7, and probably watching it during Kelly's 9pm show.

I don't get the appeal of Megyn Kelly, except that she's a pretty face. Yes, she's smart, but so are many other young blondes on FNC...

I like Megyn, but she’s not that great, and I still can’t believe they’re giving her a whole hour in prime time!

I can't either. I wonder how Hannity feels being bumped to 10pm...

Yup. Greta's show is often the best one of the FNC lineup. We'll be DVR'ing her show at 7. I already DVR Bret Baier's show at 6 every day... I'll just add Greta's show at the end.

Herridge and Griffin .... when they come on, I drop what I’m doing and watch.

Same here.

If I could only watch one TV program per day, it would be Bret Baier's "Special Report" at 6pm, Monday thru Friday. Pretty much gives you all the information you need...

What makes you think she has to “wrap up” for two hours after show each night?

For small children it means she’s home more hours during the day than she has been, and there may only be five hours a week or so that at least one of their parents isn’t there to be with them and fully attentive. Heck, I don’t know but it isn’t really any of our business. Just because you’re conservative doesn’t mean you’ve got to enforce 24/7 home burka coverage for anyone who is a mother.

Oh man... I'm really disappointed. Trading Greta for Hannity at my favorite TV watching time.

That blows very much.

OTOH if the bigs at FOX allow Greta to do real news at her new time she'll do well IMO.

LOL, Hubby and I chuckle at Greta’s diction as well. Her show is often excellent, though... love her regular guests, Reps. Trey Gowdy and Jason Chaffetz, and appearances by the great El Rushbo!

I know... I don't like it either. If you can, invest in a DVR or TiVo. DVR Greta at 7, then maybe watch her show (zoom thru commercials - it'll be about 40 minutes tops) during Kelly's 9pm show. That's what hubby and I plan to do...

" On the downside, she talks to much and she betrays a... tendency toward goody two shoes which annoys me but which might be very effective with the female audience. "

Oh, no, that would be Gretchen Carlson, who's getting her own show during the daytime after being replaced by the younger, perkier, friendlier, and uh, less goody-two-shoes Elisabeth Hasselbeck. :)

Same here, but that's all over with. Of course she covered the Zimmerman trial, and the sleazy Jodi Arias trial, but her shows are now mostly 100% about politics and government waste. When she switches from politics to the trials, she gets lots of angry e-mails from fans (including me) directing her back to politics. She does listen.

Give her another chance... I think you'll be pleased. Her show is the most "adult" of the evening line-up. No screaming and shouting over other guests like with Hannity and BOR's shows.

If something strikes me as interesting on her show, I'll e-mail her during the show. Almost every time, she has personally e-mailed me back immediately. ;-)

The two best interviewers and information sources in my book are Greta for interviews, and Katherine Herridge for national security-related news. Katherine is the most professional I've ever seen.

I agree completely. She and James Rosen are the very best at what they do.

She obviously wanted to be with her children in the morning moreso than at night which is mostly sleepy time for them. Also, by moving to a later time slot, she gets out of cooking dinner. She's a sly fox.

Maybe it just boils down to 'she hates to cook'.. "I ain't gonna cook for no man. That's a woman's job and I don't do anything that people expect females to do!" << She actually thinks like this.

Most of us were probably highly skeptical when Greta switched to Fox, but I couldn’t have become more impressed. She’s a true professional. Does her homework, and has what appears to be a genuine interest in her interviewees, the issues she raises and, perhaps more important, seems to be a decent person. None of which, frankly, I’d expected. Delighted to be proven wrong.

Think of FOX News as a baseball team: Their starting pitchers are Greta, O'Reilly, Hannity, and Megan. Pretty good startign four...better than any other team (cable network)

However, their CLOSER now is SHEP. God help 'em. With the new technology available, Ailes will soon be able to measure how many people change the channel whenever Shep appears..

Last time I watched Greta, she was doing some kind of wall-to-wall coverage of the latest trial-by-media...

I personally don't care enough about celebrity murder to stomach it, no matter how fair.

So I think I'll just take your word for it.

With 30 years in the media, mostly radio under my belt, very few high profile air talent leave when the airshift is done. Well that’s the way it used to be. There are commercials, promos and personal things that need attention.

When I did morning news I came to work between midnight and 1AM.

5 hours writing and putting newscasts together, printing and then updating as needed. On the air until 10AM. Another hour unwinding, updating my phone calls/answering machine.

Today obviously things are faster but I imagine in TV there is still a lot to do.

What about news show, is Shep doing news at 6:00?

I'm sure someone has answered this, but I'm too lazy to read 'em all! Shep will retain his 3:00 show and do breaking news BS. Hoping for no breaking news!

I watch the only two watchable shows on One America News with Graham Ledger and Rick Amato and so it will remain on the diet. I also watch Glenn Beck and Real News, since S.E. Cupp left and Ellison Barber is on it a lot. Guess I can add in greta iof I want or go to my radio talks how alternatives. Willkow is decent though. He tries to tackle stuff Glenn isn’t discussing that night.

I will add that I do more reading and hearing radio than watching Tv news. But I latched on to One America News’ two shows and I also out of boredom watched Hannity sometimes and Greta as well. But I also watch Glenn Beck. Despite my dislike for his thoughts on social issues. On other issues he gets it right. He was tackling the border problems last week in a special On The Record and Sara Carter also came on his show to discuss it.

You eggs-actly right. Megyn is a politically correct, working mother-feminist, pro-gay pundit. She is dreadful. Many conservatives on Free Republic don’t seem to realize that.
