WHAT? Why didn't anybody say anything about this? This is a shock! This comes out of nowhere!

What next? They're moving the show to the Food Network?

actually RFD announced it yesterday when they announced their fall lineup - a new show at 8AM weekdays eastern time.

What are they doing? Going from a network nobody's heard of to one that nobody watches? Next thing you know, you'll be telling me he's got Cancer!

Hey Fake Cardinal,

If you paste this link in the address bar it takes you to the index for FBN. This is the web page I would check periodically.

TV DEAL FOR IMUS IS NEAR
FOX BIZ CHANNEL AWAITS

Al said...

Ha! The Post article says 'Imus is like tofu.."

Wow, I-Man really is what he eats!

Queenpat said...

here's a little tidbit from Craig Crawford:

"..Imus folk asked me on show tomorrow for last RFD broadcast but sadly I cannot do it. and if they go on Fox my MSNBC ktract won't allow it..."

Guess who you ain't hearing on FBN anytime soon.

DL said...

Well that would also eliminate Jack Jacobs and Pat Buchanan correct? Others?

dee said...

Pigsfeet was awesome today! I'm sad because there's no radio reception here and RFD-TV has been my alarm clock. I'm hoping for a new TV gig soon - but would settle for an FM station that I could actually hear...

Robio said...

Sounds like 'Feets' liked the 'RIP RFD' concept.

Thanks, CG. You da man!

(Metaphorically speaking of course, young lady)

Blind Mississippi's 'No More Cows Baby' Blues was genius.

Playing 'Taps' at the end?

It was a find send off.

See you at the Brokerage Rob!

Al said...

Looks like it really is going to be 'out with the old guests, and in with some new guests to interview', since MSLSD is gonna play hardball with those whom they employ...

******

'Feets' be gettin' inspiration from the CG?!

Awesome!

is fox business channel on any satellites.

is it on any cable system outside of NY?

loved the pigs feet this morning. that's funny right there.

Al said...

Wow, he totally said "RIP RFD"!!

Fox Business News is on DISH and Direct-TV...

RP said...

Others at MSNBC would include Mike Barnicle.

With no Craig Crawford, Jack Jacobs, Pat Buchanan or Mike Barnicle in the rotation we have a 30 minute program with Charles doing the news, Rob supplying the yuks and Imus coughing/bitching/ranting.

RP (the fan formerly known as Juan Morecow)

DL said...

Thanks RP I knew I missed someone. Always love your nic name. Maybe you should change it to:

Juan NoMoreCow?

Queenpat said...

sorry I missed it all... I head into work early on Friday...

There are more ways to skin a cat. If MSNBC is so thin skinned that they forbid their contributors that are not regulars to be on anything associated with Fox, that's their problem.

However, if Imus is on FBN it would only be from 6AM till 9AM. From 9AM to 10AM he is only on WABC Radio. Put Crawford, Jacobs, Buchanan and anyone else associated with that joke of a Cable channel on then live.

Don't worry I am sure Imus thought about this before hand. RFD-TV was never a good programming venue in my opinion. And I am glad I didn't invest in another satellite system to watch him on a Nanny Cam.

DJTR,

The Fox Business Channel is on more Cable systems then RFD not matter what RFD says.

Fox Business Network is also on channel 359 on Direct TV and if you live in Florida on channel 149 with Bright House Networks.

dee said...

We have FBN on Verizon FIOS in hi def - come on Fox, do it! We need some humor with our business news.

DL said...

Also have Verzion Fios, Dee. Booting Cablevision out of the house two years ago gave me great pleasure. Would love to see the move to FBN. If nothing else than to see how they format it and if it works or not.
