Fox News' Half Hour News Hour Returns Sunday Night

Again Rush and Ann lead the show with their video:

Rush said this show, taped weeks ago, is funnier than the first one. The first episode's ratings were fantastic, so we'll if they can make those ratings a trend when the show airs tomorrow night.

Funny:

1.a) affording light mirth and laughter
b) seeking or intended to amuse

2. differing from the ordinary in a suspicious, perplexing, quaint, or eccentric way

3. often used as a sentence modifier

4. involving trickery or deception

Which of these definitions of the word funny are you referring to, Kim?

Jaku:

Of course they will still need a laugh track, so the dim bulbs in Fox's target audience know when to laugh. Hey, look, it's another Bill Clinton sex joke, har har har, wow that's never been done before ever, where'd they get such a hip writing team?

Ratings are always high for the first show of anything that had as much hype at this did, but the reviews were almost universally negative. It's all downhill from here.

remember Katie Courics debut on CBS? One peak and it slides all the way to the basement.

Umm, Jo dear, the show is for the core of Fox's audience, i.e. bitter old white people. Oh, wait, did I just describe you? Nevermind.

Jaku:

Jo, are you really that dense or just naive?

Olberman just got resigned for 4 year extension, his ratings have grown more than anything CNN or Fox has on the air in the last year or so. Granted he still gets half the viewers of what Dildo O Reilly does(who has been steadily losing viewers in the last 12 months), but he leads MSNBC for ratings.

Chris Matthews, ugh, I can't stand him but he comes in second on MSNBC.

Now Dennis Miller, there was a complete failure of ratings and MSNBC canned his sorry ass accordingly.

How long did Mancow last on Fox News? Two weeks?

BarneyG2000:

Hey Jo, I read that the blog "ObermanWatch" has just folded like cheap lawn furniture.

I for one hopes that FOX pick's up the show. It is a parody of itself. I hope they have more bits with Ann. Now that Ann has been exposed as the hate-monger that she is, it can only reflect well on the Republican party. Hey maybe they can find a few pedophiles or neo-Nazi to open the show? That should provide meat for the base!

Yes, I read that as well. It's so funny, the idiot who had that site thinks he is responsible for KO's ratings growth? Bwahahahaaaa!

At least he had the cajones to admit he failed miserably.

Steve Crickmore:

Fox News.. this segment was taped weeks ago...that's not exactly new(s), but I'm probably biased.. The YouTube transmission is so halting, but still I didn't find anything remotely funny on the clip..On the other hand, the Madeleine Albright send-up that Jay had on a couple of days ago, was very funny.

Actually, the person you're referring is BILL O'Reilly, you little troglodyte...and if you do nothing but interview left-wing sycophants on your show, like Olbermann does, what exactly is so glorious about that?

Is that picture actually a woman or some bizarre stick figure? Or is it a person on stilts sitting down? I'm afraid to click on it there might actually be a "faggot" hater in that picture.

Reneged on the promise you made in your Christmas time post here haven't you?

You know the one where you "promised" to cut the invective and name calling.

Of course those with the brain power higher than a one celled creature knew at the time that was satirical just as this video is.

Yea, like when Rush Limpballs made fun of Michael J Fox, ha ha ha so funny!

Like when Ann Coulter advocates killing Supreme Ct justices, what a knee slappin riot that man is, har har!

Like Dildo O Reilly who didn't realize that Steven COlbert was skewering him daily, not flattering him?

Or maybe you must mean the writing team for the 1.2 hour news hour.

I've never heard a Bill Clinton sex joke in my life, ever! Those guys are on it!

So what are you claiming Hugh? That the use of "extreme nutcase" referring to another poster is satire?

Sure, I'll buy the rest of the comment was satire but stop at that remark. Even those receiving a -D grade in Comprehension 101 can see the difference.

Which I suppose leaves you out of the mix.

And not surprising.

And expected.

Most of the libtards around here aren't really that funny, only get laughs for their own pathetic little jokes when the other cockroaches "get" them, live in a perpetual black pit of despair when it comes to life in this country and are in general, are more emotionally distraught than your average 13 year old girl.

Mitchell:

Jaku/Hugh/et ilk have just proved my point.

They have no sense of humor (the distraught 13 year old girl analogy is apt).

Very bitter stuff, guys. How about go find a life/sense of humor, then come back when you can get a joke/life.

Rob LA Ca.:

I thought the libturds were supposed to be intellectual? They pat each other on the back and claim to be intellectually superior....bwaaa ha ha! ya right. You'd think the Libturds would have clearly seen this exactly like the many "what Hilary meant to say was" moments.

Irregardless of what Ann Coulter said , take a look at this:

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=2AE847UXu3Q

I then asked a nearby neighbors son to view this clip and give me a one or two word opinion of John Edwards performance. Oh and he's Gay by the way and his two word response was ...."Silly faggot".

He doesn't vote nor is Registered to do so and wouldn't know a Republican from a Democrat.

It is a girl right?

TVEAL:

ok, i think a lot of things are very humorous, but to put preschoolers in a supposed satire show, and involve them in sexual situations....what's wrong with you people?

didn't actually say she disliked faggots. Also,

KC:

There was no way I was putting myself through the pain of yawning through the second episode of this. The first was evidence enough that the show is nothing but a bitter partisan attack. That's fine, we know what FOX is, we're not surprised.

Look over these comments, I'm really not surprised that the people who defend this atrocious programming are using words like "libtard" and "libturd". It think that's about the intellectual level it's shooting for. Seemingly with some level of success there.
