Tucker Carlson falls asleep on-air while hosting Fox and Friends this morning

Subbing in for Hannity last night and then getting up early to do Fox and Friends apparently took its toll on Tucker Carlson this morning because he fell asleep on-air during Fox and Friends this morning – and his co-hosts weren’t going to let this go without having a little fun at his expense.

    Ah, some good clean fun for a change.

  • Swamp Fox

    A good group of people.

  • Conservative_Hippie

    At least he didn’t snore!  That looks like a venti extra bold, btw!?

  • daisy_mae1

    LOL RS thanks!!

  • Desjardins

    Oh, Tucker Carlson is on the set?  I don’t see anything but legs…

  • pondlizard

    All tuckered out.

  • PressWatchusa

    He was really on a date with “Shamu” Greene! 
    YEAH RIGHT! or left

  • Army_Pilot1967

    pondlizard That’s spot-on.  LOL!

  • harglide

    That is primarily why I don’t watch FnF in the am anymore, for that reason!
    Just not the same since Edie was on………..

  • Conservator1

    It’s okay Tucker, Mike Jerrick and Alisyn Camerota put me to sleep as well.

  • deTocqueville1

    Funny, and his best commentary too!

  • Martin2717

    The whole news media puts me to sleep.

  • physicsnut

    all tuckered out ?

  • timeout31

    Tucker is one of the brainest people on FNC period. He is twice as smart as Alison, and 100x smarter than Mike. He was on several shows Friday including Sean’s show. All the heavies take off extra days for whatever. I don’t blame him trying to catch a few zzzzzzs. And Alison is becoming ever so obnoxious….I cannot and have never been able to stomach Mike.

  • JD Olson

    Good for FNF that they didn’t try to cover for TC. Maybe it’s true that he is so much smarter than anyone else that he lulls himself to sleep with that very thought. Watch it Tucker, or you may get the portable defibrillator next time.

  • tinlizzieowner

    And he handled it quite gracefully, unlike some liberals I know. 😉 😉

  • Laurel A

    Oh that’s hilarious!

  • Booker

    Oops! He probably thought he was still on commercial. Yikes.


    He was tuckered out.

  • tvlgds

    I saw this when it happened. It was hilarious. He’s such a good sport. Love him and glad he’s on Fox now.

  • DebbyX

    HOUSTONPETITION That’s the best!!

  • DebbyX

    And he wakes up with a sense of humor on top of it!  Great recovery!
    I don’t nap ’cause I’m miserable for the rest of the day after I wake up.  Getting up in the morning is bad enough without doing it again at 2pm.

  • c4pfan

    Martin2717 LOL.  Perfect.

  • tinlizzieowner

    Some people don’t understand that these people don’t just walk on the set at 6 and start talking. There’s a pre-show meeting that probably lasts a couple hours, where they get together with ‘production’ and get familiar with what’s going to be on the camera teleprompters and what topics are going to be in the script. There’s a post-show meeting too.

    It’s likely that Carlson didn’t get any sleep between Hannity’s show and Fox & Friends. I think he lives in New Jersey, he probably didn’t even go home after Hannity’s show.

  • vorlath

    Not a big fan of Carlson, but he actually handled this really well.

  • Bill589

    He lost me, a few years ago, when he said SP was a MILF and belittled her.   RINO.

  • palintologist

    Bill589 I don’t think Rush is a fan either.  He always calls him “J. Chatsworth Osborne III.”

  • poptoy1949

    NOW THAT was Funny !!!   LOLLOl.

  • Jake Bourgeois

    i’ve watched this about 10 times

  • JoelDick

    That’s what she said.

  • Dr. Strangelove

    Don’t feel bad, Tucker. I listen to Fox and Friends on XM in the morning and it puts me to sleep occasionally. Only problem, I drive a truck.

  • Dr. Strangelove

    HOUSTONPETITION Ouch. Great pun.

  • Dr. Strangelove

    Conservative_Hippie Looks like a venti, what I always get. I also get dirty looks from the baristas when I ask for extra jitters. No sense of humor, those progs.

  • Longiron

    He can sleep all he wants even if FOX and the Daily Caller gets rid of him. He can still live very well with mommey and her Swanson Food fortune. He is where he is at for a reason and it is NOT talent or skills !!!!!!!!!

  • standbesideherUSA

    What a good sport!  I really like a person who can laugh at himself and are comfortable in their own skin…At least he wakes up happy!  🙂

  • well, you have to admit….morning shows are perfect sleep inducers.

  • Conservative_Hippie

    Dr. Strangelove Conservative_Hippie Not part of their training I guess.  🙂

  • Dr. Strangelove

    Conservative_Hippie Dr. Strangelove I believe they’ve finally gotten the idea truck drivers who get black coffee also don’t fill the tip jar. Buncha cheap conservatives!

  • psychowardmanager

    My God.  He’s human after all.
