'SNL' Spoofs Hank Williams Jr.'s Appearance on 'Fox & Friends' (VIDEO)

by Jason Hughes, posted Oct 10th 2011 2:00AM
Ben Stiller, 'Saturday Night Live'On the one hand, 'Saturday Night Live' (Sat., 11:30PM ET on NBC) was talking about the steroid problem in baseball, which felt a little dated -- even if it was tied to a 'Moneyball' sketch. But then, on the other hand, they jumped right into a sketch about Hank Williams Jr.'s controversial appearance on 'Fox & Friends.'

It's when 'SNL' can react with immediacy that we often get our best satire, and Jason Sudeikis was certainly ratcheting up the crazy as Williams. The premise was that he was back to apologize, but he had a media spokesperson on hand, played by Ben Stiller, to help him and to really say the whole incident was Fox News' fault for inviting Williams on to talk politics in the first place.

Geraldo Unleashes the Worst JFK Impression Ever (VIDEO)

by Jeremy Taylor, posted Jan 21st 2011 4:05PM
Geraldo Rivera was on 'Fox & Friends' (weekdays, 6 AM ET on Fox News) where he discussed the controversial eight-hour, $30 million TV miniseries 'The Kennedys,' which The History Channel spiked and Showtime passed on, allegedly because of complaints from the Kennedy family.

According to Geraldo, the Kennedy's objected to a storyline that focused on the family's "rowdy, sex-obsessed nature." To demonstate the tone of miniseries, Geraldo read a racy line from the script, in what was supposed to sound like the voice of John F. Kennedy.

"I love lobster. But not every night. If I don't get some strange ass every couple days I get migraines," Geraldo imitated, displaying hints of both a British and Southern accent, but nothing remotely close to JFK's iconic -- and not particularly hard to imitate -- upper-crust Boston accent.

That this reading may be the closest 'The Kennedys' ever comes to being aired on TV made Geraldo's woeful JFK impression all the more sad.

Did Fox News Cancel a Joan Rivers Interview Because She Said Sarah Palin's 'Stupid'?

by Catherine Lawson, posted Jan 21st 2011 8:35AM
Joan RiversIt's been reported that Fox News canceled a scheduled interview with Joan Rivers after she called Sarah Palin "stupid and a threat" and blamed her for the attack on Congresswoman Gabrielle Giffords.

According to The Guardian, nixing Rivers has reinforced the growing perception in some quarters that Fox News is promoting Palin -- a Fox host -- and protecting her from criticism.

Comedienne Rivers made her comments in an interview with TMZ, during which she was asked if Palin should be US President. She replied: "I think Sarah Palin is an amazing woman. I think she represents everything strong a woman can be, and I think she should go someplace -- to another planet -- to show them, and get out of our face."

Steven Tyler Talks of a New Kind of 'Camaraderie' Among 'American Idol' Judges (VIDEO)

by Jeremy Taylor, posted Jan 20th 2011 5:11PM
New 'American Idol' judge Steven Tyler stopped by 'Fox & Friends' (weekdays 6AM ET on Fox News) Thursday, and answered questions about his new high-profile gig.

Tyler denied feeling any pressure to keep the show's success going, and added that he, Jennifer Lopez and Randy Jackson are bringing something to the table this season that the previous panels of judges lacked.

"When you see the camaraderie (among the judges), that was never even in 'Idol'," Tyler explained. "I'm taking a risk in saying that. I haven't seen them all, but I don't think there ever was."

Now it remains to be seen if audiences prefer this camaraderie to Simon Cowell's sideway glances of disdain.

New Miss America Teresa Scanlan Explains Why She Thinks Beauty Pageants Are Still Relevant (VIDEO)

by Jeremy Taylor, posted Jan 18th 2011 9:10AM
At seventeen-years-old, Teresa Scanlan is the youngest Miss America winner since 1921.

After taking the tiara Sunday , she stopped by 'Fox & Friends' (weekdays, 6 AM ET on Fox News), where co-host and former Miss America Gretchen Carlson asked Scanlan how she was going to react when people questioned the relevance of beauty pageants in "today's society", which apparently happened to Carlson a lot during her reign in 1989.

"(Miss America) focuses on idealism and that is something I think America has moved away from. We are so about being realistic, that we feel that is opposite of being idealistic. I think it's important we still have those ideals, the American ideal of having a good example, a role model other kids can look up to that we really don't find anymore," Scanlan said.

We're not quite sure how much sense that makes, but, then again, we didn't always make a whole of sense when we were seventeen either.

Snow Ends Cal Ripken Jr.'s Consecutive 'Fox & Friends' Appearance Streak (VIDEO)

by Jeremy Taylor, posted Jan 12th 2011 5:35PM
Has baseball's all-time Iron Man lost his edge? Much to the chagrin of the folks on 'Fox & Friends' (weekdays, 6AM ET on Fox News) Cal Ripken Jr. wasn't able to make a scheduled appearance on the program Wednesday due to the snow in the Northeast.

Brain Kilmeade was especially bothered by Ripken's no-show, since he had assured the audience earlier in the week that Ripken would be on set because "Cal Ripken won't call in sick, he never, never does."

Ripken was able to join the show by phone, and explained the key difference between his legendary streak of consecutive games played and his current absence: "It never snowed in the summer for baseball," he joked.

Later, the gang discussed how long Ripken's consecutive 'Fox & Friends' streak had lasted, with Ripken pegging it at "5 or 6," and Kilmeade suggesting it was at "60." It was a whopping discrepancy that was left oddly unexplained. Hey, welcome to 'Fox & Friends!'

'Fox & Friends' Roast Marshmallows Using Plastic Spoons and Their Hands (VIDEO)

by Jeremy Taylor, posted Nov 19th 2010 8:25PM
The folks at 'Fox & Friends' (weekdays 6AM ET on Fox News) broadcast Friday from a set made of ice, which was situated outside their regular New York studio.

The get up was equipped with a fire, to keep the anchors warm on the chilly morning, and as the show was winding down somebody had the bright idea to give the gang marshmallows.

Displaying a stunning ignorance of the way fire interacts with human flesh, Steve Doocy attempted to roast a marshmallow by holding it above the open flame using only his hand.

"You are really going to do that with hands?" Chris Wallace, who was communicating with the gang via satellite, wondered.

Next it was Brian Kilmeade's turn to play the fool, and he tried to roast his marshmallow via a plastic take-out spoon.

"I'll tell you what all your viewers are thinking," Wallace interjected. "What a bunch of dopes."

Yup, Chris, you nailed it.

George W. Bush Enjoys His Father's Testicle Joke (VIDEO)

by Jeremy Taylor, posted Nov 15th 2010 10:10PM
During an appearance on Fox & Friends (weekdays, 6AM ET on Fox News) George W. Bush spoke about a passage in his book, 'Decision Point,' in which his father, George H.W. Bush, told a (literally and figuratively) off-color joke to a nurse after he had an operation at the Mayo Clinic.

"(My dad) is lying in bed after an operation, and a nurse walks in, and he says 'Ma'am, are my testicles black?' " W. Bush recounted. "You can imagine the nurse's reaction to the former president asking that question. And she said, 'Mr. President,' and he said 'No, no, are my testicles black?' "

At that point, according to W. Bush, the nurse reached for his father's chart, presumably to check on any notations about darkened testicles. Then H.W Bush delivered the punch line: "Are my test results back."

Ah, we see what he did there. Still, when it comes to talking about balls, no president will ever be able to compete with the always foul mouth of Lyndon Johnson.

'Fox & Friends' Allege Barack Obama is Using 'Back of the Car' Analogy to Stoke Racial Tension (VIDEO)

by Jeremy Taylor, posted Oct 27th 2010 5:23PM
At campaign rallies lately, Barack Obama has being saying something to the affect that "Republicans can stay in the car, but they have to ride in the back," as a way of trying to convince audiences they need to vote Democrat in the midterm election and not allow the GOP to take control of Congress.

The folks at 'Fox & Friends' (weekdays, 6PM ET on Fox News) wondered about Obama's use of this analogy.

"Should the president be bringing up imagery of segregation into politics, or do you not see it it his words?" wondered Brain Kilmeade.

Peter Johnson Jr. believes Obama is deliberately stoking racial tension:

Glenn Beck Calls For Cuts in Military Spending (VIDEO)

by Jeremy Taylor, posted Sep 21st 2010 5:05PM
The Tea Party says they are for spending cuts to achieve deficit reduction. Monday, Barack Obama challenged the Tea Partiers to identify exactly what programs should get the axe to help balance the budget.

Although Glenn Beck rejects the idea that he is a leader of the Tea Party, he used his appearance on Fox & Friends (weekdays, 6 AM ET on Fox News) Tuesday to respond to the President's challenge.

"We can come up with all kinds of cuts, I can start with a favorite of mine," Beck said.

"Let's look at the toughest place to cut -- for conservatives -- which would be the Defense Department. You can cut so much money out of the Defense Department budget. Right now we have more admirals then we have ships. What do you say we cut some that dead weight out?"

Geraldo Rivera Is Pretty Sure a Hurricane Could Have Prevented 9/11 (VIDEO)

Rudy Giuliani is notorious for his ability to evoke the tragedy of 9/11 no matter what he happens to be talking about. However, veteran newsman Geraldo Rivera may have just surpassed the former New York City mayor when it comes to awkwardly forced 9/11 references.

Geraldo was on 'Fox & Friends' (weekdays, 6 AM ET on Fox News) Friday, and the topic turned to Hurricane Earl, and Geraldo's years of storm coverage.

"One funny thing I think of ... if only a hurricane had come on 9/11," Geraldo said.

"Remember, they didn't know how to use the instruments, these terrorists," he continued. "They took off in Boston . . . and after they took over the aircraft they steered by line of sight. And it was that crystal clear September day. And if it were only one of these weather days, history would have been rewritten. And I think about that a lot now, especially this time of year."

Survey on Stuffed Animals Brings Out a Softer Side of 'Fox & Friends' (VIDEO)

by Jeremy Taylor, posted Aug 25th 2010 5:53PM
The gang on 'Fox & Friends' (weekdays, 6AM ET on Fox News) discussed an unlikely seeming survey from Travelodge that found that one in four adult men admitted to traveling with a stuffed animal.

"Perhaps the trend started because of the show 'M*A*S*H,' reminisced reporter Alisyn Camerota. "Remember how Radar slept with a teddy bear?"

Then the camera moved over to co-host Brian Kilmeade, who was snuggling a stuffed animal.

"When I leave the couch, I feel a little lonely, so I grab a stuffed reindeer" he admitted.

But Kilmeade proved incapable of keeping up his sensitive man charade.

" If we could do it again in pre-production, it would have been a Teddy Bear -- without the tag on it, " he admitted.

Newt Gingrich Evokes Nazis in Ground Zero Mosque Debate (VIDEO)

by Jeremy Taylor, posted Aug 16th 2010 6:11PM
The controversy over the 'Ground Zero' mosque went national over the weekend when President Obama weighed in, and then clarified, his remarks on the issue.

Next Gingrich was on 'Fox & Friends' (weekdays, 6AM ET on Fox News) Monday morning, and he agreed with one thing the president said -- American Muslims currently have the legal right to build the mosque. But while the president punted on the "wisdom" of the project, Gingrich jumped right in, declaring "it is profoundly wrong to have a mosque that close to Ground Zero."

"Nazis don't have the right to put up a sign next to the Holocaust museum," he opined. "There's no reason for us to accept a mosque next to the World Trade Center."

Godwin's Law states that all discussions -- regardless of topic or scope -- inevitably devolve into each side yelling about Hitler and the Nazis. The law was initially formulated for the wild and crazy world of Internet discussions. However, it turns out the discourse on cable news isn't any more restrained or sensible. Especially when Newt Gingrich is involved.

'Fox and Friends' Promotes Pro-Arizona Immigration Law YouTube Song (VIDEO)

by Jeremy Taylor, posted Aug 9th 2010 2:45PM
While we've heard musicians such as Lady Gaga express their opposition to Arizona's controversial immigration law SB 1070, we've yet to hear any of them sing about their oh-so important opinions.

Until now. This morning 'Fox and Friends' (Weekdays, 6 AM on Fox News) had on Brian Haner, a singer, comedian and proponent of SB 1070. His Youtube video "Arizona" makes the musical argument that Arizona will soon be overflowing with jobs for American citizens, after all the illegal immigrants are kicked out of the state. Because of this, he's "going to move to Arizona." Haner's video has racked up more than 230,000 views in a little over a week.

Haner told Fox and Friends the inspiration for the song was when "LA actually boycotted the whole state of Arizona."

Whatever you think of SB 1070, or Haner's songwriting abilities, we can all agree that the world would be a better place if entertainers were only allowed to express their opinions on hot button issues through goofy songs.

Check out Haner's full-length YouTube anthem below:
