Doocy: Aly, Gretchen’s “Apprentice”

Doocy’s awkward segue or prescient prediction? As Fox & Friends began its second hour, Invanka Trump promoted it in a voice-over as “the best show on news television.” Ever the amiable agitator, co-host Brian Kilmeade observed, “Notice she was couching a little bit on ‘news television.’ She could have said ‘television’ [to] include the Cartoon Network [and to] include Discovery but no: ‘news television.'” Co-anchor Alisyn Camerota agreed, “She was hedging!”

Subsequently, co-host Steve Doocy interposed, “And, her father’s got that show over at NBC: So, maybe, she didn’t want to badmouth her father.” Brian jested, “Who’s her dad?” Aly guffawed and whispered, “The Donald.”

Then, introducing Aly’s headline news segment, Steve declared, “Speaking of the Donald, Gretchen is off today, and Alisyn is in her place.” Not quite seeing the connection, Aly responded, “Interesting segue. But, okay!” Steve explained, “As her apprentice.” Good-naturedly, Aly laughed, “Okay. Got it. Fantastic!”

Perhaps, Aly did not quite “catch it” is because Steve’s toss fell far from the mark. As many of her F&F fans know, the F&F Weekend co-anchor can more than hold her own against her weekday counterpart, Gretchen Carlson. In fact, not only does Aly seem to display a less earnest and less affected mien but also she appears to evidence a more natural rapport with both her co-hosts and F&F‘s audience.

For the record as to F&FW, in her October 2009 Celebrity Parents Magazine interview, Aly said, “At the moment, I’m exactly where I want to be.” [Italics added for emphasis.]  If so, is she Gretchen’s apprentice, too? And, her Eve?

    While I have tried to say good things about Gretchen and cannot think of anything too bad about her, I have trouble doing that.

    Gretchen speaks very well, it just seems like she goes on forever and ever. Alisyn does that some of the time, but Gretchen just talks on and on.

    But…let them both stay where they are. Don’t switch things anymore.
    And…did I see Courtney on one of the shows the other day? I thought surely she was gone. What does she do all day?

    I saw Ainsley today on F&FW. and only saw a few “different” moments in the news. She is getting much better.
