Outnumbered! Fox News to Debut New Show With Four Females Hosts & One Male

Before it even debuts, the new Fox News show Outnumbered is being called a “stroke of evil genius.” It features four, count ‘em, four, female hosts and only one, lonely male.

The four female hosts and one male host will mostly be rotating. Two of the females will be FOX Business Network’s Sandra Smith and FOX Report Weekend anchor Harris Faulkner. Other female hosts will be such Fox personalities as co-hosts of The Five, Kimberly Guilfoyle and Andrea Tantaros along with FNC contributors Jedediah Bila, Katie Pavlich and Kirsten Powers.

The male host will rotate, as well, varying each day, sometimes he will be as a notable figure in the national dialogue that week.

Like many of these panel shows, Outnumbered will tackle top news headlines from all angles and perspectives. Certainly the panelists will examine the top news of the hour but they will also deliberate over the leading pop culture and relationship issues dominating the headlines that day.

Amusingly, Alyssa Rosenberg of The Washington Post said that the show has “a flair of evil genius.”

She joked that Outnumbered turns one complaint about TV on its ear.

“In conception, Outnumbered is such an audacious act of trolling that I almost have to admire it. The setup is essentially a parody of what conservatives often accuse feminists of wanting to do to men: overwhelm them and shout them down as a sort of rhetorical reparations for years in a subordinate position.,” Rosenberg said.

Of course, seeing as how it is Fox News and not MSNBC, the show will not likely be filled with the hate and name calling that the WaPo’s Rosenberg seems to expect. But still, she expects the new Fox show to be “fabulously entertaining television.”

Tune in to see if the premier is as entertaining as expected. The show will debut on April 28 at 12PM Eastern Time.

In conjunction with the show’s debut, Happening Now, co-anchored by Jon Scott and Jenna Lee, will divide into two one-hour news blocks presented weekdays at 11AM/ET and 1PM/ET.

    A cheap gimmick by a network which although for obvious reasons destroys its erstwhile liberal competition hasn’t done anything resembling growth ratings wise for years and already has plateaued. Not that this is Fox’s fault. It’s the only legitimate news network out there. It’s just that existing political and news junkies are a tiny micro demographic (not even 1% of the populace) and the next generation coming up can’t even spell news. Ultimately this dog & pony show will go nowhere, regardless how much T&A they parade in front of the cameras. Sad but true.

      This article was obviously a cheap gimmick to induce Larry into making a fool of himself. Again.

    Though Fox decided to make fun of the female/male proportions via the name, Outnumbered is becoming a reality.

    Just another panel show, people shouting over each other no doubt, and opinions galore. Boring.

    I just want to watch the news…no Fox & Friends, no Hannity, no O’Reilly, or whatever…Brett Baier’s show is pretty good, wish they would run that at a later time.

    Fox is getting annoying. But that’s okay, I have a remote and I know where the power button is.

    how many men have found themselves trapped by over dressed opionionated females that spend 90 mins in hair and make up before they express thier ‘I know better than you’ theories – if you don t like what they say you can turn the sound down and ogal their boobs and wait for a crotch shot

    Looked forward to this but how lame! Women talking over each other, loud, irritating, not at all newsy. Harris Faulkner is great on weekends so I expected this new show to feature her. I hope she doesn’t quit her weekend job; this isn’t up to her standards. FOX: get this….Rachel Ray does a better job with news and interviews. 3 days and I had to turn it off. If I want Jerry Springer or Kathie Lee, I’ll tune to them. Whoever thought of this should go.
