Here’s what happens when you watch FOX News over the course of a day: You see a lot of strange faces.
FOX is obviously best known for its famous, divisive anchors (and Shep) but were you to regularly watch the cable channel over the course of a day — say between the hours of noon and 6 — you would quickly realise there are a lot of lesser known people who make up a day of cable content. And many of them are strange-looking.
Probably this is true of most of the cable channels (and if you Google some of these people you’ll discover they appear on TV with some frequency!), but since I watch FOX most I notice it most there.
And to be sure TV booking ain’t easy. Especially during the afternoon hours when you are left to dredge the B-reel of talking heads for people willing to speak on what is mostly a bunch of ridiculous crap (again: this is true everywhere, not just on FOX).
Here’s what that B-reel looks like, as snapped from my desk, over the course of the last month or so.
This is Gretchen Carlson. She is not a talking head, she's actually a fulltime anchor at FOX. Lately, she's been filling in for Megyn Kelly. However, she is definitely strange.
Randy Zelin (left) and Arthur Aidala (right) deserve special mention. Over the course of their daily appearances on Shep's Studio B to discuss the Casey Anthony trial not only did they forever associate themselves with the word 'chloroform' they firmly solidified themselves as office favourites. Someone should probably consider giving them a show on Court TV.
