F&FW’s New Siren?

Fox & Friends [Strange] Weekend: Juliet Huddy a no-show, Alisyn Camerota in “limbo,” and Molly Line happy to be there. For F&FW fans, Juliet’s broken promise, Aly’s uncertain future, and Molly’s viability were all legitimate areas of inquiry after last weekend.

The drama this weekend actually began a week earlier on May 7 after Juliet’s successful subbing for Aly on F&FW on Friday.  To her Twitter followers, she Tweeted, “Great time with da boyz this am. Show flew by. On FnF’s Fri and Sat this coming week.” Nevertheless, Juliet did not appear on either show as she had said: rather, Ainsley Earhardt guest-hosted Friday for Gretchen Carlson on F&F, and Molly Line temp’d Saturday for Alisyn Camerota on F&FW. Interestingly, Juliet did not explain either of her absences to her rather perturbed Twitter followers.

The second segment of this strange saga got even more intriguing when F&FW regular co-host Dave Briggs welcomed Aly’s fill-in on Saturday. As the second hour of the show started, Dave declared, “Good to have Molly Line in for Alisyn who we understand may be back in the near future at some point”: simultaneously, seemingly almost knowingly belying his own words, Dave shook his head sideways continuously.” As Molly chuckled, Dave shrugged his shoulders and threw his hands into the air, adding, “Which we hear. We hear.”

Subsequently, almost aping his co-host’s head gestures but much more subtly and gazing down often to boot, co-host Clayton Morris offered, “Yeah. I said, ‘Aly, where, where have you been? And, we love all of the wonderful folks who have been kind enough to fill in.” Concurring, Dave interjected, “We love Molly,” (as he patted her on the shoulder). Then, rarely looking at his audience and his co-hosts, Clayton continued, “Aly said, ‘I miss you guys.’ So, she might be back next weekend.”

In response, Dave looked at Clayton almost stone-faced as he appeared to try to stifle a smile. Meanwhile, Molly beamed broadly and arched her eyebrows as if in disbelief. Seemingly less than sincere, Clayton concluded, “Aly, let us know.”

Reader, rather than Aly, perchance, it will be FNC Programming SVP Bill Shine who will let Clayton and the rest of us know. As the author noted last week, Molly seemed to have given F&FW rival guest co-host Juliet Huddy the upper hand when she missed a golden opportunity on F&FW Mother’s Day edition to connect with her viewers by sharing more of her less than “Perfectly Precious” self with them. Perhaps, Shine decided to give her a second chance to do just that this past weekend by pulling Juliet at the last moment in favor of Molly.

Of course, Shine’s new F&FW filly may well have to go around the track quite a few more times if she is ever to gain the sure legs of his proven thoroughbred Aly. Or, Juliet.

Update: Juliet explains no-show? About twenty minutes after Carpe Diem posted this article, supra, Juliet Tweeted, “Threw my back out during spring cleaning – thank goodness for a massage therapist who deserves Nobel prize for saving my sanity.”

    […] Similarly, last week (May 14 – Saturday), the three played out a similar scene when discussing Aly’s possible return. In it, the three almost appeared to have been rehearsing for yesterday: Molly chuckled at the prospect of Aly’s coming “back in the near future”; Dave smilingly shrugged his shoulders and shook his head (as if to say no); and Clayton uncertainly said, “She [Aly] might be back next weekend. Aly, let us know.” [Italics added for emphasis.] […]
