TV News Halloween Costumes: Who Wore It Best?

The morning shows went all out for their Halloween episodes this morning, dressing up as everything from classic TV characters to 21-year-old pop stars.

This is the 20th Halloween celebration for NBC’s “Today” show and we have seen the cast dress up in some elaborate costumes over the years. NBC went with another example of cross promotion, having the “Today” anchors dress up various “Saturday Night Live” characters.

Willie Geist and Tamron Hall did their best impersonations of Will Ferrell and Cheri Oteri, dressing up as the Spartan Cheerleaders. Kathie Lee Gifford and Hoda Kotb dressed at Wayne and Garth from “Wayne’s World.”

As for Matt Lauer, who usually uses the occasion to dress in drag, we can’t be certain… as he dressed as the legendary gender-challenged “Pat.” Savannah Guthrie, Jenna Bush Hager and Meredith Vieira gave new meaning to the term “Mom Jeans,” although Vieira looked a little too comfortable recreating the “SNL” digital short.

Cooperate synergy was also in full effect on ABC’s “Good Morning America,” with its anchors dressed as celebrities vying for a spot on “Dancing With the Stars.” Robin Roberts dressed as the “Frozen” character Elsa, who was joined by her pal Olaf played by ABC’s T.J. Holmes. Read more

Roger Ailes and Beth Ailes Honored by Green Beret Foundation

KEANE_AILESThe Green Beret Foundation honored Fox News Chairman & CEO Roger Ailes and Beth Ailes, Publisher of the Putnam County News & Recorder and Putnam County Courier with the Lifetime Achievement Award for their personal support of the nation’s military and Green Berets. Army Gen. Jack Keane (left) presented the Aileses with their awards.

“Behind every successful man is a surprised wife,” Ailes joked as he began his remarks.

Last night’s event at the Pierre Hotel was emceed by FNC anchor Bill Hemmer. Various FoxNewsers were there including Shepard Smith, Bret Baier, Harris Faulkner, Kimberly Guilfoyle, Steve Doocy, Janice Dean. Megyn Kelly dropped by for the cocktail hour, so she could be back for “The Kelly File.”

“When President Kennedy helped form the Green Berets he knew that some day they’d be needed,” Ailes went on to say. “The values and principles that lead you to go in harm’s way willingly are unique American traits. The people in this room — particularly the Green Berets — have my greatest respect because they are prepared to risk everything for an idea, and that idea is called America.”

Elaine Howard, CEO of Gannett Government Media and Lieutenant General John Mulholland, Jr, former Deputy Commander of the Special Operations Command, were also honored.

Surgery Forces Elisabeth Hasselbeck Off Air

Hasselbeck Elisabeth304This morning on “Fox and Friends,” it was revealed that Elisabeth Hasselbeck will be away from the show for a “couple of weeks” while recovering from surgery. The exact procedure is not known, but co-host Steve Doocy said Hasselbeck is “doing just fine, she’s on the mend.”

Replacements will rotate, with Kimberly Guilfoyle filling in for Hasselbeck this morning.

“We heard from her [Elisabeth] last night and she said she is feeling good. So, in a short time, she’ll be back on the set,” co-host Brian Kilmeade said.

Hasselbeck suffers from celiac disease and has written the book, The G-Free Diet: A Gluten-Free Survival Guide.

  • FNC’s Kimberly Guilfoyle is hoping to double her money when she sells her Bridgehampton home. “The Five” co-host bought the 2,900-square-foot property for just under $1 million in 2012, and has listed it for $2.05 million.

  • Anderson Cooper makes his Marvel debut in a new “Black Widow” comic book. “Anderson and his show and his journalism will be the catalyst for a major event in Black Widow’s journey,” says writer Nathan Edmondson. The cover below is by artist Phil Noto.

Kimberly GuilfoyleKimberly Guilfoyle talks with Cosmopolitan about how she became a Fox News co-host:

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.

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.

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.

‘The Five’ Gets Snapchatted

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.

Greg Gutfeld is covered by Harry Potter-like glasses, while Bob Beckel dawns his trademark suspenders with an angry face: “I’m Bob Beckel…Grrr,” the message says.
