It's a big week for cable giant FOX News. The channel rolled out its brand new primetime line-up this week, to what has so far been major success. In a move that is sure to draw even more eyes to FNC, Sean Hannity has just booked a "dangerous" guest. That's right, disgraced New York City mayoral candidate Anthony Weiner (a.k.a. "Carlos Danger" to his Twitter hook-ups) is set to sit down for a one-on-one in-studio chat with FOX's now 10pm host.
The two men will discuss a variety of topics, including Weiner's failed mayoral campaign, the previous 'Hannity' appearance by his online squeeze Sydney Leathers, the current government shutdown, the growing pains of the Affordable Care Act, and more. Judging by the many disastrous TV interviews Weiner has been party to in the last year, this one will probably be a grade-A train wreck. Weiner is a man who seems incapable of answering questions about his past without getting defensive and standoffish, which is likely to create fireworks with a host like Sean Hannity, who has certainly not been known to back down from an argument. My prediction: 'The Daily Show' will probably get some material out of this, and 'Hannity's ratings will spike upward.
The fun begins tonight at 10/9c on FOX News. Hopefully Weiner can keep his middle finger under control this time.
