Sean Hannity is the type of guy that most people either love or hate. He's very unsubtle about his opinions, and never hesitates to blast those who he feels deserve it. If you agree with him, you probably regularly view his nightly FOX News' series "Hannity". If you disagree, you probably occasionally click by during his show, roll your eyes, then change the channel.
I highly doubt Hannity wants it any other way though, as after all, you can't please everybody. He's fine with the loyal audience he has, which has propelled him to over a decade on FOX News, #2 in cable news (#1 at 9pm), and now the impressive milestone of 1000 episodes.
Hannity of course began on FOX as part of "Hannity & Colmes" in which he and left-leaning co-host Alan Colmes would debate and discuss the news of the day. That program ran all the way from 1996 to 2009. Following Colmes' departure, Hannity began hosting his old self-titled program at 9pm, where he now places second only to his lead-in Bill O'Reilly in the cable news ratings wars.
Hannity acknowledged the occasion last night on his show, saying the following:
"All right, that is all the time we have left this evening. Before we go tonight, I want to say thank you to all of you, our viewers. Tonight happens to be the 1,000th episode of HANNITY and we wouldn't be on the air without you. We want to thank you for being with us each and every night, 9:00 Eastern.
It also happens to be my boss' birthday. Roger, happy birthday today. Let not your heart be troubled. We'll continue the news and all you need to know right here on the Fox News Channel."
