Pete: Tucker’s Heir?

Bringing gravitas back! Strangely, Fox & Friends Weekend “co-host” Pete Hegseth is still listed as a contributor for Fox News Channel (FNC) in his FNC bio and on his Twitter page.  But, he appears to be the unannounced co-anchor of Fox & Friends Weekend a la his apparent predecessor Tucker Carlson and his seeming co-host Abby Huntsman. Perhaps, the F&FW suits have learned from the time they awkwardly replaced Fox & Friends co-anchors Page Hopkins, Kelly Wright, and Greg Kelly with Ainsley Earhardt, Dave Briggs, and Clayton Morris without notice to F&FW fans.

Abby and Ainsley’s loose lips? Friday, Fox & Friends co-host Ainsley sat between guest co-hosts Pete and Clayton on the curvy couch and Abby Huntsman was the newsreader. Before Abby read the headlines at the top of the seven o’clock hour (ET), she pointed to Pete, Clayton, and Ainsley, declaring, “My weekend crew, Ainsley! You’re sitting right…[inaudible]….I love it!” Even though she was the queen of the F&F curvy couch, Ainsley sweetly cooed, “I know! I love being a part of you all! Thank you for letting me do this!”

On Fox & Friends Weekend (Saturday) and today, Pete’s ascendancy to F&FW co-anchor seemed crystal clear. Yesterday, at the top of each hour, the names and Twitter addresses of Pete, Abby, and Clayton were displayed as chyrons at the bottom of the screen underneath them: For the doubting Thomases at the top of the second hour, Clayton seemed to adduce evidence to Pete’s apparent new position, saying, “Pete, Abby, and Clayton in the house for you.” On F&FW today, the chyrons of the names and Twitter addresses of Pete, Abby, and Clayton were back at the top of each hour.

Perhaps, it is a mite premature, Pete: But, welcome aboard the F&FW ship! Your first mate Abby is a young smart beauty who is heir to her father’s political acumen and Clayton is the entertaining class clown who loves UFO’s, comic book cines, and the latest in tech products: And, you bring Tucker’s gravitas to the mix with your Princeton and Harvard education; much more importantly, your service to the nation; and your dedication to the nation’s vets.

For Pete’s sake, Pete, do yourself and your F&FW fans proud! Break a leg!

    […] Newest FNC contributor: Mollie Hemingway.  Hogue: Is Pete Tucker’s heir? […]

  2. gigs Says:

    Yes, Pete is smart. Abby gets what is happening,too. I loved Anna Kooiman, but I think Abby understands politics a little more.

  3. cathy807 Says:


    Totally irrelevant to the above but just wondered about your thoughts on Ainsley. She’s been on the curvy couch for about a year now. How’s she doing???

  4. jakeho Says:

    Gigs, I think you may be right: But, of course, Abby has the advantage of being the daughter of Jon Huntsman, Jr. (former Utah guv, Singapore ambassador, Chinese ambassador, and apparent soon-to-be Russian ambassador).

  5. jakeho Says:

    Good question, Cathy! I’m not quite sure about Ainz: She has yet to embrace her role as “the fox” in Fox & Friends. Between Steve & Brian, she still has time to grow into the role: For now, she seems to be a mite mousy, i.e., Elisabeth Lite.

  6. Kathy Says:

    I love the 3 of them together! Ainsley adds quite a freshness to the trio! Love Brian’s humor!!! Steve tries to keep everyone on track! 😃😃 Love Abby too! But the curvy couch belongs to our girl Ainsley!! ❤
    LOVE PETE!!!! He’s very easy to look at!! Also VERY KNOWLEDGEABLE!!!
    Really also enjoy when Ed Henry is cohosting the curvy couch! Extremely intelligent man!!! Does a GREAT JOB! Would love to see either Pete or Ed if ever Steve retires!! #lovefox&friends❤❤❤

  7. motownman Says:

    Ainsley is successful because she’s genuine. She is herself, a truly nice person with a good heart. Judging from the ratings, Ainsley will be on the curvy couch for a long time.

    I miss Page Hopkins… always liked her. Met her briefly outside the studios on a trip to NYC.

  9. cathy807 Says:

    …. I miss Page too. I still think fondly of the Greg/Page/Kelly days.

  10. jakeho Says:

    I miss Page, too, Cathy: After all, she was a local Louisiana newsperson. :-) But, my favorite trio had to be the two beauties, Kiran Chetry and Alisyn Camerota, and Kelly Wright.
