Aly Off: Ainsley On

Tomorrow Ainsley Earhardt regains her center seat on the curvy couch on Fox & Friends Weekend. As guest co-host for a vacationing Alisyn Camerota, she will once again be flanked by Dave Briggs and Clayton Morris. For Ainsley and her acolytes, it may be a bittersweet reminder of what once was and could have been.

For the attractive former F&FW co-anchor, it cannot be easy to sub in the position that she once proudly held. However, Ainsley has shown grace and poise in the past when she has temp’d for Aly, and, assuredly, will do so tomorrow.

Laurels, Ainsley, for being a class act!

    Hear, hear! Ainsley is indeed a class act, full of grace, poise and beauty. Nice choice of complimentary words, JK: “Laurels” all the way around!

    Gotta love those “Laurels” also, eh?

    Ainsley IS a class act. She also is a professional who does whatever Fox asks.
    She has excelled in her role as a correspondent for Hannity.
    Remember, both Aly and Gretchen are at least 10 years older than Ainsley.
    She is the only one who has formerly sat in that chair that has been asked back.
    Neither Gretchen or Aly will be in their jobs forever.
    Ainsley has a bright future with Fox, especially since Hannity is in her corner.
    Somewhere down the line, she’ll get another shot on F&F

    Most of the FNC news journos have to do fill-in work, so doing whatever FNC asks is probably because it’s in their contracts. Same is true at CNN. Because F&FW didn’t go well during her tenure as a temporary host, it’s unlikely she’ll ever have that couch spot on a permanent basis again. It’s more likely she doesn’t even want it.

    Almost all of her correspondent reports, including those on Hannity’s shows, have been very good. I haven’t seen any minute-by-minute ratings breakdowns but I bet she did well. She’s also performed as well as anyone on all the late-night news desk spots I’ve seen, which included a few extended-time, seat-of-the-pants, breaking news moments.

    I wouldn’t be surprised if she gets a permanent anchor position as a host or co-host someday, but I think it would be for a regular “news” programme instead of a chit-chat/quasi-commentary one such as Fox & Friends.

    Loved the way Painsley emphasized that Rianna shouldn’t get back together with Chris Brown because she (Rianna) is so beautiful and talented. I guess if you’re not considered beautiful you should just suck it up and take your beatings. It’s probably the best you’ll get.

  5. Tom B. Says:

    Oops, I guess it’s spelled “Rihanna”?

  6. motownman Says:

    Ainsley did very well today
    On the Rhianna thing, she asked why someone would stay in an abusive relationship, a question MANY people have
    It’s becoming clear that Ainsley was dropped not because of any shortcomings on her part, but because Fox had to make room for Aly after the newsreader position on F&F was eliminated
    As always, the problem is Clayton. He isn’t getting any better
    Ainsley’s day will come and she WILL be back as a host on F&F someday. If Fox didn’t have plans for her, it wouldn’t bring her back as a sub now

    You could be right, motown, but I’d point out Fox has also had others serve as guest host recently including Courtney Friel and Patti Anne Browne.

    Clayton Morris still bugs me enough to change the channel, but I can’t deny that he’s getting better. During yesterday’s fishing outfitters segment, the guest mentioned that they give trade-in value for components of old fishing rods. Morris joked something like, “Well I don’t have any but my co-host, Dave, has an old ‘Barbie’ fishing pole. Does that count?” You have to admit that was funny.

  8. Mary Says:

    Just can’t take Anisley, Courtney or Clayton. I have to turn the channel when Ali isn’t on.
