Profiling: Gutfeld, Hasselbeck, Kohn

  • Greg Gutfeld continues his Not Cool book tour, promoting his new book. The Pensacola News Journal caught up with Gutfeld in North Florida: “Stationed in the children’s section of the bookstore, he wisecracked with young and old alike, even threatening to call child protective services on one young mother, though still drawing a laugh.”

  • Elisabeth Hasselbeck is featured in Ladies Home Journal. On leaving “The View” for “Fox & Friends,” Hasselbeck says, “It was like going from hanging out with your sisters to playing catch with your brothers. I don’t think I am or will ever be the best at what I do but I try really hard.”

  • CNN contributor Sally Kohn–previously a Fox News contributor–writes for The Christian Science Monitor about her experience as a “liberal talking head on Fox News.” “It was a turning point for me to meet people such as Mr. Hannity, Karl Rove, Monica Crowley, Sarah Palin, and so many others,” Kohn writes. “Though we certainly disagree profoundly on political issues – they’re personable and kind and human. Just like me.”

Fox News’ Upfront Presentation Will Feature Megyn Kelly, Maria Bartiromo

megyn kelly kelly file 5Fox News Channel’s executive VP for ad sales Paul Rittenberg talks to Broadcasting & Cable (subscription required) about what’s in store for the nework’s upfront pitch this year. Rittenberg, who tries to keep his pitch under 25 minutes, says the network’s changes to primetime will be a major part of the presentation:

“The message is primarily our new schedule and the fact that it’s working,” Rittenberg says. “We aren’t resting on our laurels. We made some changes and they all pretty much worked.”

Rittenberg will bring a couple of his TV sales guys, plus some of his digital sales execs. “It’s 95% the television sales pitch. We talk about multiple-screen opportunities but these days there’s always a question about social media or TV Everywhere, and it’s good to have one of my digital people there to answer them. You need to be under 35 or probably 30 to handle most of those,” he says.

A lot of the pitch is about the network’s new schedule and talent. “We’re going to talk about Megyn Kelly‘s show and the fact that it gave a jolt of energy to our primetime. And Maria Bartiromo signing on,” he says. “We talk a lot to advertisers about sponsorship opportunities at Fox & Friends, so we mention that Elisabeth Hasselbeck has brought some younger viewers to the show and more female viewers.”

Elisabeth Hasselbeck on the Difference Between ‘The View’ and ‘Fox & Friends’

Five months after her transition from “The View” to “Fox & Friends,” Elisabeth Hasselbeck is the latest subject of “Beyond Candid,” Giuliana Rancic‘s in-depth interview show on E! News.

“I think the greatest thing about where I am now is my opinion really doesn’t matter as much as maybe it did in a debate forum. I like being on your side, asking the questions,” Hasselbeck says on the special, which airs tonight at 10pmET. “It’s exciting, you know.” Watch a preview:

‘Fox & Friends’ Scooter Race Goes Awry

A “Fox & Friends” segment on new toys crashed and burned this morning when several of the anchors attempted to race scooters and skateboards in the studio. Steve Doocy crashed into the camera on his skateboard, Elisabeth Hasselbeck lost control of her scooter and Heather Nauert wiped out and landed “right down on the floor on my stomach.”

On the “After the Show Show,” Peter Johnson Jr. surveyed his colleagues on the extent of their injuries before they agreed to a rematch, although he declined to participate himself. “I’m kind of the Bob Costas. Look at my eyes,” he joked. Watch:

2013 Ratings: Fox News, #1 For 12 Straight Years, Sheds Viewers Too

Fox News remained on top in 2013, capping off its 12th consecutive year as the most-watched cable news network among both total viewers and A25-54 viewers. The channel, which finishes the year fourth among all cable networks, beat MSNBC and CNN combined in total viewers. But like its competition, Fox News saw an erosion of its audience, especially among the key A25-54 demographic, in 2013. In primetime, the network is posting its lowest total viewer delivery since 2007 and lowest demo delivery since 2001.

The ratings for 2013 (Nielsen Live + Same Day data):

  • Primetime (Mon-Sun): 1,097,000 total viewers / 222,000 A25-54
  • Total Day Mon-Sun): 1,761,000 total viewers / 294,000 A25-54

Compared to 2012, Fox News was down -5% in total viewers and -19% in the A25-54 demographic in total day. In primetime, the network was down -14% in total viewers and -30% in the demo, the steepest decline among younger viewers of all the cable news networks. With the exception of HLN, all the cable news networks are down compared to 2012, which was a Presidential election year.

The biggest change to Fox News this year was a revamped primetime lineup that debuted in October, with Greta Van Susteren moving to 7pmET, Megyn Kelly moving to 9pmET and Sean Hannity moving to 10pmET. Compared to 2012, Bill O’Reilly‘s program, the only primetime show that did not move, is down -6% in total viewers and -23% in the A25-54 demographic. Kelly’s program is up +1% in total viewers and down -23% in A25-54 viewers compared to the 9pmET timeslot last year, and Hannity’s program is up +1% and down -16%, respectively, compared to the 10pmET timeslot last year.

There are signs of growth, however: since the channel debuted its new expanded primetime lineup in October, all four programs — “On the Record with Greta Van Susteren,” “The O’Reilly Factor,” “The Kelly File” and “Hannity” are up in total viewers and the demo compared to their respective year-to-date averages. Kelly’s program is up the most, +20% in total viewers and +10% in the A25-54 demo. Read more

‘Duck Dynasty’ Stars to Appear on Fox News New Year’s Special

fox news duck dynastyWillie and Korie Robertson of A&E’s “Duck Dynasty” will be interviewed on Fox News’ New Year’s Eve special tonight. The interview, live from Steamboat Springs, will be the pair’s first television appearance since A&E reinstated “Duck Dynasty” co-star Phil Robertson after his controversial comments about gay people and African-Americans.

The interview will take place during Fox News’ “All American New Years’ Eve,” which begins at 9pmET tonight. Hosts Bill Hemmer and Elisabeth Hasselbeck will conduct the interview.

Bob Beckel & Kimberly Guilfoyle ‘Going After’ That Other New Year’s Eve Duo

Bob Beckel Kimberly GuilfoyleTwo of “The Five” co-hosts Bob Beckel and Kimberly Guilfoyle have news for CNN’s New Year’s Eve hosts: “We’re going after Anderson Cooper and Kathy Griffin,” Guilfoyle joked to TVNewser in a phone interview this afternoon previewing their just-announced New Year’s Eve special on Fox News.

“And we’re gonna get em,” Beckel added.

Guilfoyle and Beckel will host a live hour at 9pmET, ahead of the New Year’s Eve Times Square special hosted by Bill Hemmer and Elisabeth Hasselbeck, which now begins at 10pmET. It’s actually Hemmer and Hasselbeck who will be going up against Cooper and Griffin at the other end of the Times Square riser, and the other end of the cable dial.

Why did the normally disagreeable Guilfoyle and Beckel agree to this New Year’s Eve shift?

“I was reluctantly pulled into it because Kimberly’s looking for a fifth husband,” Beckel joked. (She’s actually only been married twice). Similarly, Guilfoyle says she’s making Beckel’s love life her New Year’s resolution: “What I wish for Bob…is to pick one, just one, sweet lady to spend time with.”

Brian Kilmeade: With Elisabeth Hasselbeck, ‘Fox & Friends’ ‘Like a Brand New Show’

Brian Kilmeade_NEW_creditFOXNewsChannelImagine a journalist turning over secret intelligence he’d gotten during interviews to a movement that was at war with the ruling power. It happened, during the American revolution. That newspaper publisher was one of the “secret six” profiled in a new book by Fox News host Brian Kilmeade. And much of the history he writes about happened in his own back yard of Long Island, NY.

TVNewser talked with Kilmeade about his new book, his new “Fox & Friends” co-host and his longtime passion: sports.

TVNewser: You’re known as a politics and sports guy. What made you interested in writing a history book about Washington’s Secret Army?

Kilmeade: I hadn’t seen it really done extensively before. Being from Long Island, I was concerned in the beginning it was too much of a New York story, but the more I researched, the more you look at a map of 13 colonies, you realize. You don’t win the war without New York, you can’t win it straight up, you had to win it through spying and surveillance and espionage. We’ve been looking at this since 1989. The more we started researching the more I realized we didn’t know. Then for two years, we just blitzed it like it was a news story. We tried to get as much information from as many experts as possible.

TVNewser: What can today’s political and media leaders learn from Washington’s secret army?
