Gets her groove on again. For Halloween, Fox & Friends co-anchor Gretchen Carlson “treated” her mid-term-election-edition viewers to a dance special. For the boys and girls who may have begun to drift off after two and half hours of a somewhat serious show, Gretchen decided to jazz it up a bit.
As F&FW returned from commercial break for the final half hour with the new promo graphics (including a dancing Gretchen), co-host Brian Kilmeade commented, “You know, you know what I think seeing that animation? People are thinking when does Gretchen do the oil [inaudible] in the show.”* Co-host Steve Doocy, moving his shoulders rhythmically back and forth, laughed, “It’s right after our cooking segment.” Looking at Gretchen, Brian chuckled, “Everything else we do for you regularly except you, you dance–people expect you to dance every show.”
Smiling at Brian, Gretchen exclaimed, “Don’t look so surprised!” Immediately, she joyfully jumped up and began an animated JibJab-like jig, jauntily gyrating her hips and furiously pumping her arms in the air repeatedly. Beamingly broadly, Brian bantered, “There you go!” Smiling, Steve interjected, “So, the answer is 8:30 [Eastern] time, Brian.” As Brian aptly remarked, “Fantastic!,” a grinning Gretchen retorted, “Whenever asked, that’s the answer!”
[Author’s aside: Toward the end of the segment, supra, Brian joked, “You [Gretchen] know what? You just made the JibJab guys, [you] made it a lot easier for them to line up your head.” Brian’s remark and the title of this article are clear references to a Halloween JibJab video (featuring the co-hosts dancing) that F&FW‘s unofficial sloganeer, Chas of Maryland, sent in.]
