Mike Jerrick: We’re Not Even the “B” Team

Molly Line: “I don’t know what we are: I don’t know what happened.” Nor did Fox & Friends Weekend fans as they were treated Saturday to yet another line-up of co-hosts: “the new girl” Molly Line, golden oldie Mike Jerrick, and steady standby Eric Bolling. Unfortunately, viewers were offered no on-air explanation for the absence of regular co-hosts Clayton Morris, Dave Briggs, and Alisyn Camerota.

As FNC Executive VP of Programming Bill Shine continued to offer up his F&FW iterations du jour with little apparent rhyme or reason, F&FW fans had to look off-air for a clue.  While Aly remained mute on her Twitter page, Clayton and Dave offered their own explanations. Before the show (Friday), Clayton Tweeted, “Enjoying a family vacation….Be back next week.” After the show (Saturday), Dave, tardily wrote, “We’re both at separate wedding’s…sleeping in. RT @MyrtleBeachSC2: WHERE R U AND CLAYTONhttps://twitter.com/#??”

As I pen this article, yet another F&FW incarnation appears: Steve Doocy, Ainsley Earhardt, and Mike Jerrick. As Ainsley and Mike laugh, Steve remarks, “Live from Studio E where there are three people who have never worked together at the same time. Welcome to Fox & Friends.”

Exactly. To paraphrase Forrest Gump, “Life is like waking up to Fox & Friends Weekend. You never know what you are going to get.”

    I’m enjoying this odd three-some this morning – they’re doing well together. I think Mike and Steve can work w/ anyone. But the uncertainity of whom the regular weekend crew is annoys me.

    Ainsley certainly brought her A game today.
    Molly’s getting better every time, too.
    They seem to be pushing each other.
    I know it isn’t FNC’s style, but I wonder if Fox would keep the Molly Saturdays/Ainsley Sundays arrangement if it decides to keep Aly on days.

    I like both Saturday and Sunday. They can have Mike G. on any time. I would have liked Huddy to be with him at least one of the days though.

    it was so bizarre! no “hey, I’m mike in for Clayton today..” kind of thing. weird.

    I did enjoy seeing Mike Jerrick. He is always a riot. Ainsley did well today, but I would love to see Molly on the curvy couch if Aly stays weekdays.

  5. CathyG Says:

    Loved Saturday’s show. The guys had the knowledge and skills to expertly cover anything that was thrown at them and for a “new girl” Molly is coping just fine.

  6. Jerrick “King of Philadelphia”: Clayton Who? « Carpe Diem Says:

    […] again? Yes, Fox & Friends Weekend guest co-host Mike Jerrick returned once more to the curvy couch today without a single word of acknowledgement of the co-anchor that he had replaced, Clayton Morris. His odd omission was made especially […]
