Fox News Replaces Glenn Beck With “The Five”

Reported by Aunty Em - June 30, 2011 -

It takes a village to replace Glenn Beck, or so it seems. “The Five” is to be a panel show with a rotating group of pundits, yabbering around the news, or as Fox “News” puts it, according to a press release:

The new opinion show will feature a roundtable ensemble of five rotating FOX personalities who will discuss, debate and at times debunk the hot news stories, controversies and issues of the day.

In making the announcement, Shine said, “The Five brings together an eclectic group of FOX talent whose knowledge of key issues and unique insights will undoubtedly make for a dynamic program.”

Some of the revolving FOX personalities to be showcased in the weekly ensemble include: Greg Gutfeld, Juan Williams, Dana Perino, Judge Andrew Napolitano, Geraldo Rivera, Andrea Tantaros, Eric Bolling, Monica Crowley, Bob Beckel and Kimberly Guilfoyle. The program will also feature added guests, including politicians, celebrities, sports figures and key newsmakers.

“The Five” won’t debut until July 11, 2011 because, presumably, they couldn’t convince anyone to work over the holiday week. Until then the time slot will be filled with repeats of The Glenn Beck Program. Here’s the new teaser ad:
