Tucker Carlson Says He Didn't Mean It When He Said Michael Vick Should Be Executed (VIDEO)

by Jeremy Taylor, posted Jan 4th 2011 2:55PM
Last week on Hannity (weekdays, 9 PM ET on Fox News) Tucker Carlson matter-of-factly stated Michael Vick should have been executed for his crimes against dogs. Appearing on the show again Monday, Carlson backtracked from his statement.

"Of course I don't think he should be executed," Carlson told Sean Hannity, admitting that as a dog lover he let his emotions get the best of him when he suggested otherwise.

Later when Hannity began to list the positive ways in which Vick had rehabilitated himself, Carlson had an odd retort.

"As a friend of mine pointed out, a convicted child molester doesn't get to adopt children," Carlson said, even though Hannity hadn't mentioned anything about Vick owning a dog.

Realizing he had let his emotions get the best of him again, a flustered Carlson quickly retracted his comparison of Vick to a child molester.

Tucker Carlson Says Mike Vick Should Have Been Executed (VIDEO)

by Jeremy Taylor, posted Dec 29th 2010 4:00PM
Guest hosting 'Hannity' (weekdays 9PM ET on Fox News), veteran TV pundit Tucker Carlson made a provocative statement to begin a debate over whether President Obama should have called the Philadelphia Eagles owner and thanked him for giving Michael Vick a second chance.

"I'm a Christian, I've made mistakes myself, I believe fervently in second chances," Carlson explained. "But Michael Vick killed dogs, and he did in a heartless and cruel way. And I think, personally, he should've been executed for that."

We can't even imagine the punishment Carlson would propose for criminals who actually killed people.

Political commentator Robert Novak dead at 78

Robert NovakThe TV talking head and former right side of CNN's political cluster#*$& Crossfire has passed away.

Robert Novak died Tuesday morning at the age of 78 from his bout with brain cancer.

The right-wing pundit was a journalist first as evidenced by his long stint in the ink stained world of newspaper reporting from his days as an Illinois sports stringer to his columns for the Chicago Sun-Times. But he's probably best remembered by audiences' eyeballs for his work as a TV pundit and his uncanny ability to make news as he reported it.

What the Tuck? Carlson's show yanked

by Allison Waldman, posted Mar 10th 2008 7:23PM
Tucker CarlsonArch, conservative, preppie guy Tucker Carlson has been ousted from his MSNBC show. Carlson's one-hour talk show, called Tucker, has been canceled. NBC News correspondent David Gregory will take over the hour slot, 6 p.m. Monday through Friday, which will be called Race for the White House. This week will be Carlson's last. Gregory starts on Monday, March 17.

MSNBC is reportedly making a series of changes, amping up the political chatter. Considering how much politicking is going on now, including Tucker, it's hard to fathom how switching Carlson for Gregory is going to increase the discourse.

Save Tucker Carlson!

Devoted TV fans are famous for getting together to try and save their favorite show. Jericho fans sent tons of nuts to CBS, and Arrested Development fans created online petitions and web sites (as fans of other cancelled shows have done). Now fans of MSNBC's Tucker Carlson have set up the web site SaveTucker.org in order to get the cable news channel to change their mind about canceling his evening show. OK, they haven't actually come out and said that he's gone, but it doesn't look good. Carlson himself recently hinted at his show's low ratings on the air, which didn't please the execs at MSNBC.

I've never found Tucker Carlson to be that great of a host. Besides, isn't he too busy appearing on dancing celebrity shows and game shows? It will be interesting to see what the fans do to save his show. Maybe send bowties to MSNBC? Does he still wear bowties?

The best and the worst post-DWTS careers - VIDEO

by Brett Love, posted Oct 30th 2007 12:20PM
Shandi Finnessey - DWTSOur pals over at AOL have a list up of those celebrities that have seen a boost to their careers after appearing on Dancing With The Stars. Head over there to see what John, Tatum, Stacy, and eight others are up to.

A gig on a show that counts itself as two of the top ten most watched programs every week certainly offers ample opportunities. But, like KISS said, there are two sides of the coin to choose from. So... after the jump, a look at those celebrities that have been somewhat less successful after their time in the ballroom.

Do You Trust Me? coming to CBS

by Bob Sassone, posted May 30th 2007 9:02AM

CBS logoBack in April, Joel told you about the game show pilot that Tucker Carlson was filming for CBS. Back then it was titled Who Do You Trust?, which is the same name of the game show Johnny Carson had in the 1950s. I'm not sure why, but the title has been changed to Do You Trust Me? The network has ordered six episodes of the game show.

This isn't the only game show CBS has this fall. They also have Drew Carey's Power of 10.

Family Guy: Meet The Quagmires

the quagmires - family guy

(S05E18) And so ends a short, inconsistent, Family Guy season. I don't know if we should chalk it up to Seth MacFarlane being spread too thin with American Dad and The Winner to watch over, or just the show coming up on 100 episodes. Something just wasn't quite right at Family Guy HQ this season though.

Top ten F-bombs dropped on live TV - VIDEOS

by Bob Sassone, posted May 18th 2007 1:00PM

Letter FThere are many swears that have started to make their way on to television, and I don't mean just HBO and Showtime. I've heard "shit" and "asshole" sprinkled here and there.

But there's still one word that's a no-no, and that's the famous four letter word that begins with the letter "F." It's banned on network television, and I think even on cable you can only get away with it so many times during one show. In the movies there are limits to the number of times it is used and the context (exclamation or verb?).

After the jump are the top ten videos of the word being used on live television. This Digg post lists the Richard Simmons clip as number one, but that's not accurate because they're outtakes, not live segments. Still funny though!

CBS signs Tucker Carlson to host game show pilot

by Joel Keller, posted Apr 13th 2007 7:28PM
Tucker CarlsonTucker Carlson, MSNBC pundit-show host and former bow-tie aficionado, has been selected to host a game show pilot for CBS. Called Who Do You Trust?, it involves a take on the "prisoner's dilemma," where strangers try to gauge how much they trust each other as the game proceeds, and make wagers based on what they think the other person is going to do.

There was a game show in the late fifties called Who Do You Trust?, which was hosted by Johnny Carson. From what I've seen, it seems like this version will be similar to the Carson version, but not the same. Though, in both versions, the hosts will be able to help the contestants judge each others' trustworthiness via interviews. Of course, Carlson's experience in trying to wrangle a pen of talking heads should serve him well here. As for Carlson... well, even if you disagree with his politics or think he's smug, you can agree that the guy's got personality. Heck, even Jon Stewart would admit that, albeit begrudgingly.

Dancing with the StarsHarperCollins, ABC, and BBC Worldwide are getting together to create a book you've all been waiting for: a fitness guide based on the hit show Dancing with the Stars.

According to the press release, the book "will reveal for the first time how some of the stars and dancers got into the best shape of their lives. Included will be healthy recipes and simple dance moves as well as never before seen pictures and quotes from the stars and their partners."

Yeah, because I've always wondered how Tucker Carlson stays in such great shape.

Dancing with the Stars: The Finale

by Brett Love, posted Nov 16th 2006 9:00AM
Emmitt Smith, Mario Lopez(S03E20) The grand finale of season three really boiled down to one question. With the judges taking themselves out of the equation, or being taken out of the equation by the producers (for the tinfoil hat crowd), would the viewers vote based on the dancing or popularity? Emmitt Smith put on quite a show over the course of this season. I think most people were surprised by just how well he performed. But as good as Emmitt was, Mario was consistently better.
