Is the Labor Day weekend the official end of Alisyn Camerota as a Fox & Friends Weekend co-host? If Fox News’ Fox & Friends brand new ten-second Labor Day weekend ad is any indication, it certainly seems so. Replacing the usual F&FW promo with co-hosts Alisyn Camerota, Dave Briggs, and Clayton Morris was one of Juliet and the boys on the curvy couch.
As the very brief commercial opens, Juliet playfully slaps Clayton on the shoulder while Dave smiles.* Meanwhile, the announcer proclaims, This Labor Day weekend, one morning team helps kick off your day,” and a chyron choruses, “ONE MORNING TEAM HELPS KICK OFF YOUR DAY!” As the voice over continues, “Get the news you need from the friends you trust,” the “new trinity” reappears with a banner resounding, “GET THE NEWS FROM THE FRIENDS YOU TRUST!
Even though a doubting Thomas may protest that it is only a Labor Day weekend ad, the proverbial writing appears on the wall. According to Clayton, Aly was doing the “maternity shuffle” for the four months that America Live anchor Megyn Kelly was on maternity leave: However, this weekend will mark Aly’s absence of four weeks beyond Megyn’s maternity leave. Furthermore, when Dave was asked only three days ago when Aly would return, he replied, “I really don’t know? [sic]“
“I really don’t know?” may not be fully decipherable but it certainly suggests that Aly is not, at least, scheduled to return any time soon. After three years of her second stint at F&FW, perhaps, Aly’s tutelage of the boys is now complete. If so, maybe, they’re now prepared to play with a possibly new F&FW two-timer Juliet Huddy–a proud cougar.
Probably not. Rowrr! But, it should be fun to watch.
