“‘Mike Jerk’ in for Dave Briggs?

October 11, 2009

After his less than fab Fox & Friends Weekend yesterday, Bill Shine brought back one of his proven starters, Mike Jerrick, to sub for the vacationing Dave Briggs. Not a bad decision. Today Mike resumed his instant rapport with his co-anchors, Alisyn Camerota and Clayton Morris, and the audience alike.

An example of Mike’s “magic” occurred after the mid-show opening shot of beluga whales in a Honshu, Japan, aquarium blowing bubbles, Mike commented, “You know how they learned how to do this? Co-anchor Alisyn Camerota asked, “How?” Mike joked, “Blowing smoke rings. They’re big smokers.” Aly added, “They have bad habits.” After Clayton queried, “They have [sic] smoke, too?, Mike jested, “This is what you get when I sit in here. Mike Jerk in for Dave Briggs.”*

Perhaps, it was an unintended elision (or the author possibly misheard) but it is the kind of self-deprecatory humor that fans enjoy and have learned to expect from Mike Jerrick. Nice to have not only his former FNC Morning Showing with Mike and Juliet co-star Juliet Huddy back on tap, but Mike as well. Bill, your Mike “Shine’d” today.
