    Until yesterday I had never heard of “dabbing”. I wish nobody had.

    • I’ve heard of it for over a year.

      • Larry Kelly

        I’m officially old.

    • Grandpa D

      A little dab’ll do ya.

      • Larry Kelly

        🎵the girls will love to run their fingers through your hair🎵
        and head to the kitchen for a paper towel.

        • Grandpa D

          For the youngsters reading… This is from a Brylcreem hairdressing ad.

          • Larry Kelly

            The age of greasy kid stuff.

  • LenInFlux

    Take it for what it’s worth (which is probably not much), but I read on another site that a dark horse for the 9pm hour on Fox could be The Blaze’s Dana Loesch.

    • sky303

      She would be a nice pick though.

    • Larry Kelly

      Seems a bit harsh on Twitter.

    • Mitch Alan

      Hell, I never watch her on the Blaze. She is always pitching that beet juice of hers, not very credible.

      • sky303

        That Blaze network, has these weird paid advertorials where people from the channel promote products in the Breaks , like Glenn Beck promoting this small device than can power a car or something, and food that can be stored for 25 years.

    Well, I’ll be jiggered! I finally agree with Piers Morgan about something.

    • Larry Kelly

      It’s like the yammering drunk at the bar, when he’s right, he’s right.

  • Cecelia

    I’ve made up my mind.

    Guilfoyle.

    • Larry Kelly

      Probably the best choice for the network’s needs. Star qualities.

      • sparty

        I think KG makes a lot of sense.

    • homemaker

      I like this idea-smart enough to take BS on with a “fight” but with some charm.
      Now-the snark! She has got to get rid of that helmet hair she has. Those locks need to loosen up some! She moves her head and the hair stays put.

      • jrd

        “She has got to get rid of that helmet hair she has. Those locks need to loosen up some! She moves her head and the hair stays put.”
        Her hair drives me crazy!

        • Cecelia

          Good crazy or bad?

          • jrd

            Bad crazy. I know that this is petty of me, but I also hate how she parts her hair in the middle and I also think that it’s too long. She’s a beautiful woman who could be stunning. With that out of my system, she’s the one making the big bucks and not me.

          • Larry Kelly

            Felt the same about Alfalfa.

          • Cecelia

            I agree. KG is beautiful and likely looks even more beautiful with her hair in a towel and no makeup.

      • Cecelia

        Yeah. She has gotten some highlights though.

        At least it’s not all one flat color now.

    • gcblues

      Si, y ella hablas Español. Ella Puede conducir Kelly loco con este.

  • ojfl

    As an unabashed fan of Shannon Bream I would love for her to have a shot but I am not sure she is “combative” enough for what the audience wants. Fox however definitely needs a balance for O’Reilly and Hannity otherwise they may lose some of the audience that leans right but is not in love with Trump.

    • Mitch Alan

      Bream is good where she is, on Special Report. She is too boring to host at 9 PM.

      • Larry Kelly

        I believe she is FNC’s Supreme Court reporter.

      • ojfl

        I think that is the sentiment that will prevent her from getting the spot. But again I do not think she is boring at all.

  • Larry Kelly

    “Sherman scoop ‘entirely inaccurate”. Save that where you can easily copy and paste it.

  • Larry Kelly

    Ted Turner must feel like Paul Brown would were he still alive.

  • gcblues

    i cann guarannnttteee (Cajun accent) the NYTs piece on MK will have a portion of it on the correction page in the near future getting no attention. por supuesto. NYTs. corrections r us,

    • Nixon – niihpikiiookani

      I miss Justin Wilson.

    Re: 11 names Martha MaCallum would be interesting pick, I do like her, Judge Pirro would be out of left field. I don’t see Tomi Lehern going there myself or being picked for a weeknight show, especially when you have a lot of qualified people who’ve been working there for years. Unless they are moving Tucker to 9 and looking for a new 7pm, I don’t see a male taking the 9 et slot. I would add Pernio to my own guess list , but again she might work better at 7 than 9. Bream would be a great choice, and again more likely than them grabbing someone from outside. I still see Boling as probably O’Reilly’s Successor or if Hannity ever leaves. Trish Regan would be another person I would put on a list as well. I don’t see Laura Ingraham getting it, Kimberly Guilfoyle would be an interesting choice , but at the same time who would replace her on The Five?
    This is long.

    • Cecelia

      It’s good though.

  • Larry Kelly
    • “Pinkerton”?

      • GATXER

        Those idiots are convinced that The Cable Gamer is Jim Pinkerton who used to be with Fox…….because anybody who calls out their lies and foolishness must be somebody else and paid by Fox News for doing so.

    • Larry Kelly

      Receding hairline removing brain as it travels.

    • jrd

      Okay, john.

    • Cecelia

      Megyn Kelly is a scientologist?

      • Larry Kelly

        Greta could hot-wire an E-Meter.

      • Nixon – niihpikiiookani

        No, she’s Catholic like me and Lily Langtry.

    • Nixon – niihpikiiookani

      Moe sure cusses a lot. Tourettes?

    • GATXER

      HEY…….how am I going to get my Fox check….if you do all the stooges linking around here???? LOL!

  • carolr527

    Megyn had a daytime show on FOX then because she wanted something in primetime, everyone else’s shows got changed around to accommodate this prima donna. Now she’s leaving so she can have a daytime show on NBC. I won’t miss her. My personal favorite is Trish Reagan. I wonder if Jedediah Bila is sorry she left FOX. She may have gotten something with Megyn gone.

    • Presbyter

      Trish Regan for me.

  • Larry Kelly

    If Wemple covered the White House Easter egg roll, he would humiliate the kids that didn’t get eggs.

    • Cecelia

      Yeah, with O’Reilly, you’ve got a show where the host presents an argument and then features a prominent colleague from his own network to come in and tear that view down.

      In a world where liberals think that the only folks who are entitled to artistic freedom, to freedom of association, and to act on their sense of personal propriety, are those peeps who wish to avoid their political contrarians…O’Reilly’s more broad minded than Wemple has ever shown himself to be.

    • I wish he’d find someone else to obsess over.

  • carolr527

    Last night, or very early this morning, on Red Eye, Andy Levy made a joke about getting the 9 p.m. slot. As far as I know, he has been the only FOX personality to refer to Megyn’s leaving.

  • GATXER

    Impressed that Bill O’reilly got the IL Gov name right tonight. Somebody must have finally corrected him.
