Like little stars.
Glenn Beck and Fox have fired each other, or at least “Glenn Beck” will no longer exist on Fox News, weekdays at 5 p.m. This leaves something of a hole in Fox’s schedule, right after the daytime lineup, leading into the heavy-hitting prime-time lineup.
An obvious solution is to plug in someone currently at Fox. It could be a daytime host, an anchor who wants to turn pundit, a reporter or someone currently wasting away on the unwatched Fox Business channel.
Stealing someone from a competitor
As Fox did with Glenn himself, buying another network’s talent is a fun way to rub in your success as a network. But: There’s currently a dearth of talent at CNN and no one on MSNBC is salvageable for Fox’s purposes.
Fox loves surprises almost as much as it loves infuriating liberals and watching immigrants die from exposure in Arizona internment camps. Will it choose a maverick?

Like little stars.
World's best pie apple. Essential for Tarte Tatin. Has five prominent ribs.
So pretty. So early. So ephemeral. Tastes like strawberry candy (slightly).
My personal fave. Ultra-crisp. Graham cracker flavor. Should be famous. Isn't.
High flavored with notes of blood orange and allspice. Very rare.
Jefferson's favorite. The best all-purpose American apple.
New Hampshire's native son has a grizzled appearance and a strangely addictive curry flavor. Very, very rare.
Makes the best hard cider in America. Soon to be famous.
Freak seedling found in an Oregon field in the '60s has pink flesh and a fragrant strawberry snap. Makes a killer rose cider.
Ben Franklin's favorite. Queen Victoria's favorite. Only apple native to NYC.
Really does taste like pineapple.
