Have you faced adversity because of your gender or ethnicity?
So far I think my reputation and my abilities have put to rest any doubts that one might have about me, about my background, about where I come from, or even my gender. I think it’s been more of an issue of being a woman in a hard-charging field, like being a prosecutor, working with victims of violent crimes, working with gang units, working with homicide prosecutors. I have been in a very tough world where a lot of men are involved in these groups and these jobs. You really have to prove yourself and prove your worth. I didn’t come from family that had been here for generations and had all these connections. What I’ve had to do was struggle and put myself through hard work. I still feel like I’ve got to prove myself.

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
Fox 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.
- “Outnumbered” debuts at NoonET on FNC. Harris Faulkner, Sandra Smith, Kimberly Guilfoyle and Andrea Tantaros are among the rotating co-hosts. The sole male co-host will change each day. “It needs to be a news show first and foremost,” SVP Jay Wallace tells Variety.
- 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.
- Following Netflix and Yahoo, Microsoft is the latest tech company to get into the business of original video production using the company’s 85 million connected Xboxes around the world. Capital New York reports on what they have planned.
Fox 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.
Fox News’ “The Five” has done well lately in the ratings, and one of its fans went beyond just watching earlier this week: she Snapchatted co-host Eric Bolling a series of images she drew of all the co-hosts’ characteristics draped over her face.
“SavSav” drew Bolling with the caption: “I’m Eric. My hair is always perfect.” Kimberly Guilfoyle‘s image came with a shirt titled, “I heart Bob [Beckel].” Dana Perino donned bright yellow hair, holding her dog Jasper.
Tonight is the annual NLGJA Headlines & Headliners benefit in New York City.
ABC’s Amy Robach is the host for the night. And unless breaking news gets in the way — as it did last night — here’s who’s scheduled to attend: ABC’s Gio Benitez and Mara Schiavocampo; from CBS, Erin Moriarity and Michelle Miller; NBC’s Meredith Vieira, Natalie Morales and Chris Jansing.CNN’s Ashleigh Banfield, John Berman, Don Lemon, Jeanne Moos and Michaela Pereira; Fox News Channel’s Jamie Colby and Shepard Smith; Melissa Francis and Gerri Willis from Fox Business; also MSNBC’s Thomas Roberts, Bloomberg’s Trish Regan, CNBC’s Simon Hobbs and many more.
The event raises awareness of LGBT issues and raises funds for NLGJA programs and scholarships.
As the hours to Super Bowl XLVIII tick down, Fox News is pulling out all the stops to promote Fox’s broadcast of the game. Both “The Five” and “The Kelly File” and “Hannity” were live from Times Square last night. On “The Five,” Kimberly Guilfoyle interviewed Joe Namath, who said he’s picking the Broncos in tomorrow’s game:
Tomorrow, Chris Wallace will host “Fox News Sunday” from MetLife Stadium in New Jersey. He will interview John Elway, Archie Manning and NFL commissioner Roger Goodell (who is married to Jane Skinner, a former Fox News anchor). The show’s panel guests will be made up of Fox NFL analysts Terry Bradshaw, Howie Long, Jimmie Johnson and Michael Strahan.
Two 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.”
Fox News is changing things up for its New Year’s Eve coverage this year: after six years of hosting the network’s NYE special alongside Bill Hemmer, Megyn Kelly gets the night off to ring in 2014. “Fox & Friends” host Elisabeth Hasselbeck will be in Times Square with Hemmer
beginning at 11pmET. >Update: the program has been expanded and will now begin at 9pmET.
The news was announced on “Fox & Friends” this morning. Watch, via J$P:
