Huckabee Talks Host/Guest Relationship

huckabee_12-21.jpgFNC host, author and former presidential candidate Mike Huckabee is profiled by Kate O’Hare of Zap2It (appearing here in the Buffalo News).

Huckabee describes the TV hosting job as “an experience that takes me full circle.”

O’Hare writes about the long list of liberal guests who have appeared on “Huckabee,” including Richard Dreyfuss, Bill Maher and Oliver Stone. This week, Fran Drescher, the actress seeking Sen. Hillary Clinton‘s Senate seat, appears on the program.

“The words ‘host’ and ‘guest’ imply something to me,” says Huckabee. “They imply that the host is extending hospitality to those whom he invites, and that the guest will be treated with dignity and respect and hopefully, in turn, will act like a guest.”

Huckabee Likes the Liberals — as Guests

huckabee_11-19.jpgMike Huckabee talks about his Fox News show in the Wall Street Journal today, and specifically about his affinity for liberal guests.

“What I want to try and do is have people on who are 180 degrees from me,” he tells Laura Meckler. “I take the word ‘guest’ and ‘host’ very seriously. Being host implies a certain level of civility and hospitality.”

So far the former Republican Presidential candidate has welcomed Bill Maher, Oliver Stone and Richard Dreyfuss to his weekend program.

As for what he thinks about his new colleague Bill O’Reilly: “I’m not going to criticize anyone from my network. I like getting paid.”

Huckabee Visits SNL, Talks Religion With Maher

michaels_11-3.jpgA tipster emailed yesterday afternoon asking, “What happened on Huckabee? None of the guests you said would be on were on,” referring to this Thursday post which said guests on Huckabee would include Lorne Michaels, Bill Maher, Richard Dreyfuss and Kelsey Grammer.

The program was preempted on Saturday at 8pmET by an economic town hall edition of Huckabee. But it did air at MidnightET and again on Sunday at 8pmET. Mike Huckabee interviewed each of the guests (except Grammer) during that program.

And if you missed it, Huckabee teased part two of the Michaels interview (with SNL head writer Seth Meyers) for next week’s program.
