FOX Turning To Comedy? I Thought That Was All They Were!

Looks like FOX is trying to do whatever they can to get their ratings back:

Fox News Channel might air two episodes of a "Daily Show"-like program with a decidedly nonliberal bent on Saturday nights in late January, with the possibility that it could become a weekly show for the channel.

The half-hour show is executive produced by "24's" Joel Surnow and Manny Cota and creator Ned Rice, who previously wrote for "Politically Incorrect" and "Late Late Show With Craig Ferguson" through This Just In Prods. It would take aim at what Surnow calls "the sacred cows of the left" that don't get made as much fun of by other comedy shows.

"It's a satirical news format that would play more to the Fox News audience than the Michael Moore channel," Surnow said. "It would tip more right as 'The Daily Show' tips left."

The show was pitched as "This Just In" when it first got life as a 20-minute pilot presentation for Fox Broadcasting Co.'s late-night division. But when that network passed, Surnow said it attracted the attention of Fox News Channel chief Roger Ailes.

So FOX News Channel wants to put on a satire show? Isn't everything on FOX satire? We all know they aren't news. But what happened to Colbert speaking the truth for liberals? That is what Tom Delay said about a year ago.

I guess with CNN and MSNBC quickly gaining on FOX in the ratings game, they are desperate. Of course this article talks about FOX television and FOX News as one. That means it must be a lie in the eyes of Bill O.
