Well, at least FOX news had the courage to let a liberal co-host one of their shows...
Alright, a debate show! Oh goody goo! I should probably mention at this point that I love debate shows. And that means that Hannity and Colmes is no exception. But I should mention right now that I am in no way a Republican. In fact, I'm center-left and I've lived in the Commonwealth my entire life. But Hannity and Colmes, no matter how way you slice it, is entertaining...much like the other dozens of biased bloated news shows on FOX.
If you've never heard of this show before, Hannity and Colmes is a FOX debate show starring jack-sprat and his wife, Alan Colmes and Sean Hannity, respectively. Then, they interview people. Then they debate. And then, things get worse...
Alan Colmes, in short, is a dweeb. With huge glasses and a face only a mother could love, Colmes is routinely harassed and barely gets any talk time. He's like the little annoying kid that gets picked last for basketball; not matter how loud he talks or high he jumps, he gets drowned out by just about everyone.
The man on the other side of the coin is Sean Hannity, who is the polar opposite of Colmes both physically and politically. Sean is louder, more obnoxious, smug (Don't worry Bill O'Reilly, you still have the lead) and has a neck like an Easter ham. Hannity is basically the boss of this show. Anything that the guests say in interviews can't be said without his approval. Because of this, Sean comes off as someone who adores the sound of his own voice and is very unpleasant.
Because of this totally lopsided bias, Hannity and Colmes is not the best debate show on TV. "Crossfire" is (or shall I say "was") superior to this joke but nothing - NOTHING - can ever replace Hannity and Colmes. Why? Because it's one of the few shows that no matter how much to hate it's guts or despise it's political beliefs, it's impossible to turn away. Hannity and Colmes will grab your attention from the start and unfortunately, it won't let go. That's probably why it's so popular and has many news shows in it's time slot running for cover.
Hannity and Colmes is one of the better shows on FOX but that really not saying much. It's biased, obnoxious, and sometimes, you just can't stand it. But it's ridiculously entertaining and I guess that's all that matters.
