Aly: “Steve & Brian Here with Me”

Gretchen: Hey, everyone! I’m…in for Shep today. Aly at Fox & Friends’ helm soon? Today, FNC anchor Alisyn Camerota was in charge of the F&F “A Team” as F&F Weekend covered the Connecticut school carnage. After a special weekend edition of F&F First, Aly welcomed her audience and the F&F “big boys,” saying, “Good morning, everyone! We appreciate you joining us on this very sad morning. It’s great to have Steve [Doocy] and Brian [Kilmeade] here with me.”

Remarkably, Aly did not note the absence of either of her regular F&FW co-hosts Clayton Morris or Dave Briggs. Furthermore, in this Fox & Friends “special edition,” Aly did not mention her purported “A Team” counterpart Gretchen Carlson, who was conspicuously missing this morning. Has the changing of the F&F “A Team” guard already begun?

Only two days ago, seldom solo host Gretchen notably filled in for Shepard Smith on Studio B, an FNC afternoon show (saying, “Hello, everyone! I’m…in for Shep today”):* Perhaps, her contract negotiations have begun to bear more fruit. According to New York Magazine, Gretchen was “said to want to host her own show on the network but Fox executives [were] resistant to the idea”: furthermore, it reported that a source had said that she had reached a “short-term accord that would keep her on the curvy couch with Steve Doocy and Brian Kilmeade until the election” but added that “after November, it’s unclear.”

Perhaps, tellingly, Gretchen has seemed to be particularly strident in her polemics lately–as if she might be auditioning for “her own show.” And, her co-hosts Steve and Brian appear reluctantly to be biting their tongue all the more. Perchance, they think that she is starting to spread her wings in anticipation of a flight on her own soon to a later hour on FNC.

Post-election F&F: Gretch a goner? If so, is Aly their new “It girl”? Stay tuned.

    People are always hating on Gretchen. She has done a fantasic job since she took over. She is eye candy, however she is smart. You don’t stay in that position for years,if your not good at your job. Cheers to all the haters ! I can’t wait to see, sexy Gretchen back on the curvy couch in 2013 !

  9. Phyllis Says:

    I hope Gretchen is gone for good, she is a self-serving, perfect little pompous ass. Aly is class – always watch her on the weekend and she is a perfect fit with every co-host she subs with. Love Brian and Steve – GOOD-BYE Gretchen

    If Gretchen does leave it will be sad. I wouldn’t mind seeing her do her own show but she is best when she shows her emotion, not just doing the news raw like Shep does.

  11. DMD Says:

    If Gretchen is gone that is a sad thing to see. I think Gretchen is at her best when she can interject emotion and feeling into a story. You can do that on F&F, you can’t do that on a raw news show like Studio B, that isn’t a good fit for her to do raw news.

    Gretchen might not be like it in real life but she certainly comes over as self-righteous, pious and pretentious. A combination that at times seems to leave Steve and Brian sitting there staring embarassingly into the far distance.

  13. vciro Says:

    I can’t wait until she moves on. I wish her well but not on Fox and Friends. She just doesn’t fit. The chemistry is very, very bad with her and Steve and Brian. She talks over them, is overbearing, looks totally disinterested when anyone else is talking and completely hogs the conversation with, in most cases, a grasp of the obvious. I have watched Fox since its inception. I feel that Carlson is just not a fit on F&F. Maybe later in the day….but I have my doubts about that, too. We’ll see. If Aly comes back to F&F, it will definitely make my day. She is classy, and fits so well with Steve and Brian.

    Just my 2 cents.

  14. CaliRed Says:

    Gretchen doesn’t bother me one way or the other but Aly annoys the crap out of me. Somehow along the way she got very “fake”. I love to see them get rid of Shep. No clue why people never call out Shep for openly opinionating during his supposedly straight news show. He’s gotten increasingly strident and is totally predictable in his political slant. I’m always delighted when he’s away!

  15. F&F’s Special Megyn Kelly: “Now I’m Curvy” | Carpe Diem Says:

    […] tragedy special edition. Like F&F Weekend co-anchor Alisyn Camerota who oft takes the field for F&F‘s ”A Team” on other momentous occasions, Megyn provided her usual grace and necessary gravitas to carry the show with the boys for four […]
