  1. I take exception to the derision of meteorology–on-camera meteorologists, in particular–in the post-Halftime block of last night’s Red Eye. There’s more to it than listing the daily temperature forecast, as Dennis Prager said. That’s all he thinks you do, Janice Dean, Rick Reichmuth, and Maria Molina. I generally like Dennis, and enjoy the Prager University series, but lay off weatherpeople.

  2. Chris Hayes on MSNBC makes fun of Trump for not knowing bills start in the house with Paul Ryan……..seems to forget how Obamacare started……….GATXER suddenly remembers Emergency! is on METV right now.

  3. Thank God for DVR’S……I mean who thought it was a good idea to put Megyn’s show on right after the highly rated NCIS with a longtime guy last show and season finale and then on against NCIS: LA season finale………there have been many days with NO new shows on.

    • Actually it’s opposite NCIS, and NBA playoffs, and The Voice, and The Flash. At least in my time zone. It’s gonna lose but if she can just keep her head above water it’ll be counted a success.

      • Oh you right as Usual….I set the DVDR a few days ago and just remembered the 8:01….which I see now is the end time…………which makes it worse………I REALLY want to see the OJ lawyer part but if I didn’t have a DVR…..there is NO WAY I would skip Tony’s last show on NCIS.(sorry Megyn).

    • Going head-to-head against the season finale of the #1 rated series with the added draw of the final episode of a long time main character is ________ (fill in the blank).

      PPP

    • Do you really need a DVR? I mean..this is Fox we are dealing with.

      Can you imagine how many replays we will get stuck with on FNC and FBN?? 😉

      NBA playoff not that big of a deal. That doesn’t even begin until 30 minutes in and by the time they actually tip off… 3/4’s or more of the show should be over.

      But it wasn’t very smart putting it against the best show on TV… KENNEDY.

      Be interesting if they lead off with Trump or try and hold him till later. I doubt many of the younger viewers (in the demo) care that much about Michael Douglas, Shaprio

      and from what I’ve read…Laverne Cox is a dude. He hasn’t gone through surgery to transition. He’s got his junk etc. Its not like he’s Flip Wilson doing Geraldine =)

      • “Do you really need a DVR?”

        For most shows….no………I download almost all my shows and watch them when I want……..like I will with flash…….by i’ve been watching NCIS for 13 seasons and my facebook friends all watch and won’t keep their mouths shut about what happens.

        ” I mean..this is Fox we are dealing with.”

        maybe…….but my comcast guide shows no repeats in the next 2 weeks anywhere.

  4. Today’s most popular links:
    5 the fifth
    4 takes a dive
    3 more Megyn specials
    2 gets spanking
    And the most popular link in today’s links…
    1 WWHL videos: Megyn on her co-workers.

  5. I haven’t watched the MK interview but from what I read online…it sounded more like she was doing REHAB FOR TRUMP. And she goes on…if you wanna know how I really felt…spend $20 on my book….which won’t be out until after the election ;).

    Some of the reviews should be interesting.

    • Gabriel Sherman….HAHAHAHHAAHHAHA.

      You do know that he did a fundraiser for HRC when she ran in NY right?

      Not ONE thing Sherman ever prints comes true.

      However…..I doubt he would vote for the Democrat for the WH….big shock there……but of course he doesn’t let it effect #1 Fox News coverage.

      • If Spud no longer pays attention to Sherman when he writes about FNC, I sure the heck won’t.

  6. Reviews
    So far…not much kudos for the Trump part…but seem to like some of the others.
