The Fox Ticker: Witch Hunt, Name Game, Gadget Guy

  • Bill O’Reilly says Kareem Abdul-Jabbar‘s recent call in TIME magazine to “expose every instance we find,” of racism, sexism and homophobia is dangerous. “If his vision were to come true,” O’Reilly said on his show last night, “we would be a nation of witch hunters.”

Weekend Changes at Fox News; Gregg Jarrett Taking Time Off for ‘Personal Reasons’

gregg jarrettFox News is making some changes to weekend programming, just as one of its longtime weekend anchors is taking time off.

Fox News tells us Gregg Jarrett “requested time off for personal reasons and Fox obliged.” Jarrett has been with FNC since 2002, joining from MSNBC.

Other programming changes include Harris Faulkner signing off the Saturday edition of “Fox Report,” while continuing to host Sunday’s show at 7pmET. Faulkner will move to a six-day workweek, serving as a co-host on the new show “Outnumbered” Monday-Friday at NoonET.

Replacing her on “Fox Report” Saturday will be rotating anchors including Julie Banderas, John Roberts, and Shannon Bream, Fox tells us.

And Saturday at 1pmET will also have rotating anchors: Banderas, Arthel Neville, and Elizabeth Prann will be filling in as hosts. For Prann, it’s been an upward climb since 2008, moving from assistant to Greta Van Susteren, to local news reporter, to Fox News correspondent, and now part of the network’s weekend anchor rotation.

Behind the Scenes at the White House Correspondents’ Dinner

For the White House Correspondents’ Association, it’s a night to celebrate the free press. For Joel McHale, it’s a night where “a guy like me can stand before the president, the press and Patrick Duffy, and tell jokes without severe repercussions.” And for TVNewser, it’s a night where the people we cover all year — executives, producers, reporters and anchors from every major network — are all together in the same room: the annual White House Correspondents’ Dinner, which we attended this year as a guest of ABC News.

Our night began outside the entrance to the ballroom at the Washington Hilton, where we overheard now-NBC News correspdonent Cynthia McFadden ask for directions to the ABC News party. We followed her in, and a few minutes later we were chatting with Diane Sawyer, who told us she always looks forward to the Correspondents’ Dinner, and James Goldston, who said he was pleased with his first few weeks as ABC News president. In the back of the room, Fox News anchors Ainsley Earhardt and Kimberly Guilfoyle posed for a picture with Sofia Vergara; Earhardt told us afterwards that she’s “having a blast” anchoring “Fox & Friends First,” despite the crazy hours. We spotted Katie Couric chatting with former Presidential candidate Jon Huntsman and his daughter, Abby Huntsman, who is a co-host of MSNBC’s “The Cycle.”

Wolf Blitzer made the rounds with Diane Lane. We saw NBC’s Savannah Guthrie and ABC’s Lara Spencer snap a picture with Tony Goldwyn from “Scandal.” We spent a few minutes with Rebecca Jarvis, and chatted with Alicia Menendez about her participation in the TVNewser Show as well as her Twitter habit.

On the way into the ballroom, we spotted Guthrie and her husband, Mike Feldman, chatting with Bret Baier and his wife Amy. We saw Jessica Simpson and her fiance, Eric Johnson, chatting with fans. Simpson’s ex, Dallas Cowboys QB Tony Romo, was also at the WHCD as a guest of Fox News. Read more

‘Outnumbered’ Debuts on Fox News

OutnumberedFox News’ new noon panel show “Outnumbered” premiered this afternoon with Tucker Carlson serving as the inaugural “one lucky guy” sitting on a couch next to four of Fox News’ women.

The ensemble cast, which today featured Harris Faulkner, Sandra Smith, Jedediah Bila, Kimberly Guilfoyle, and Carlson, led the show discussing the firestorm created this weekend when TMZ leaked an audio tape allegedly featuring the voice of Los Angeles Clippers owner Donald Sterling telling his girlfriend not to flaunt her associations with African Americans.

The panel pivoted to politics, playing a clip from Massachusetts Senator Elizabeth Warren‘s interview on Sunday’s “This Week,” where she declined to go as far as endorsing Hillary Clinton to be the Democratic presidential nominee. Some other topics covered during the show’s debut included the “Obama Doctrine” for military force; a new study about middle-class Americans struggling; and men and women’s differing views on emotional versus physical cheating.

Like fellow Fox roundtable program “The Five,” “Outnumbered” featured no guests, with the five hosts’ discussion serving as the main component of the show.

The Morning Ticker: FNC, CNBC, MSFT

  • As part of its 25th anniversary, CNBC’s Tyler Mathisen hosts a special tomorrow night of the 25 people who’ve made the biggest impact in business and finance over the last 25 years. The special airs tomorrow night at 7pmET on CNBC.

Fox News to Debut Daytime Ensemble Show

outnumberedFox News has announced plans for a new 12pmET show called “Outnumbered” that will feature a rotating ensemble of four female hosts and one male host. The show will debut April 28.

In the new daytime lineup, “Happening Now,” anchored by Jon Scott and Jenna Lee, will split into two one-hour blocks at 11amET and 1pmET. “America’s News Headquarters,” which has had a temporary place in the lineup since the primetime shuffle last year, will no longer air on weekdays.

Harris Faulkner and FBN’s Sandra Smith will be the rotating hosts that will lead news coverage on “Outnumbered.” Other women featured will be Kimberly Guilfoyle and Andrea Tantaros, along with Fox News contributors Jedediah Bila, Katie Pavlich and Kirsten Powers. The solo male panelist will vary each day.

Outnumbered combines a distinctive group of FOX talent with unique experiences and insights that will make for compelling news programming.  We look forward to once again pushing the envelope with the addition of this new show and are confident the revised line-up will only strengthen the FNC brand,” senior vice president of news Jay Wallace said in a statement.

Fox News has seen great success with “The Five,” its 5pmET ensemble show that debuted after Glenn Beck‘s departure in 2011. The show finished the first quarter of this year third in total viewers and second in the demo among all cable news programs.

Harris Faulkner on Social TV: ‘I Thought GetGlue Was Getting Some Elmer’s’

harrisfaulkner_304x200An anchor and reporter at Fox News for nine years, weekend “Fox Report” host Harris Faulkner has become one of the network’s biggest champions of leveraging social media on-air and in her reporting.

“One of the things I love about Fox News is that it looks at something and tries to figure out how it can be useful in the journey and bring everybody else along and lead the way.”

Faulkner, who live-tweets with fans from the Fox News “Deck” during “Shepard Smith Reporting” weekdays, and reads social comments on-air during her weekend show, was behind Fox News’ “Strategy Room”— an eight hour marathon streamed on FoxNews.com. Full disclosure: I worked on Strategy Room during my time at the network.

“It taught you how to do social TV…people weren’t even really doing it then,” she said. “They thought GetGlue was getting some Elmer’s.”

Check out Faulkner’s wide-ranging interview at our sister-site Lost Remote on how the rise of social TV is complementing traditional TV news, and how it is changing the on-air presentation and the news-gathering process.
