In less than six months, Fox News could deepen its talent pool with the addition of Mike Jerrick and Juliet Huddy, the fun and fervid duo of their recently cancelled eponymous morning talk show on FOX. According to Twentieth Television’s prez and coo Bob Cook, The Morning Show with Mike and Juliet will not be renewed: Production of new shows will continue through June 2009 and the program will leave the air in the fall.
Even though the cast of Fox & Friends appears to have been established and F&F Weekend seems to have regained its zest (with the return of the sexy, saucy veteran Alisyn Camerota), both weekday and weekend shows could well use experienced, talented, and confident fill-ins. As former F&FW co-hosts, Mike and Juliet have proved their abilities to not only fit the bill but add a zany spontaneity that seems to sometimes be missing on the current versions of the programs.
Hopefully, welcome back, M&J!
