'Fox & Friends First' misspells 'Spelling Bee' with on-air graphic -- VIDEO

Sometimes, jokes just write themselves. And in the case of Fox & Friends First, the early morning Fox News channel program, we mean literally.

While reporting on a recent spelling bee competition, the Fox & Friends First graphic called the event a “Spelling Be”. You have got to be kidding me, right? The irony of the error will make you smile this Monday morning, in addition to the fact that the winning word was “definition”. Watch the clip below: READ FULL STORY

Elisabeth Hasselbeck gets a surprise visitor for her first day on 'Fox & Friends'

You can take Elisabeth Hasselbeck off The View, but you can’t take The View women away from Elisabeth.

Hasselbeck made her debut as the new co-host of Fox & Friends this morning, and — after getting some (not gluten-free) cake to welcome her, the newbie got a special guest: View co-host and friend Sherri Shepherd dropped by the set to congratulate her friend on the new job. Hard-hitting!

“You guys don’t know what you’re getting over here,” Shepherd enthused after presenting Hasselbeck with gifts. “Trouble!” Hasselbeck finished with a laugh. Shepherd shared her tips on how to keep Hasselbeck happy, while, for her part, Hasselbeck sat back and happily stroked the couch. She was home.

Check out a clip from Hasselbeck’s first show below:

'SNL': All this week's 'Fox & Friends' corrections

Once again, Saturday Night Live opened with a sketch that poked fun at Fox News’s Fox & Friends — and ended with a fast-moving scroll that listed a few things the show’s fact-checkers wanted to set straight before going to break. As always, the corrections were topical (“Jason Collins was not turned gay by a Washington Wizard”), totally random (“New York exists outside the mind of Billy Joel”), and everything in between.

Here’s the full list:

Kentucky Derby losers are not turned into Ikea meatballs.

Dzhokhar Tsarnaev did not accidentally blow up vowels in his own name.

The chupacabra does not deliver presents on Cinco De Mayo.

President Obama does not want to take away T-shirt guns.

Most women have only two breasts.

Morning shows speak with Boston bombing survivors, highlight heroes -- VIDEO

As the search for answers in the Boston Marathon bombing continues, so does the extensive TV coverage. Here is a roundup of the reporting offered by the morning shows Tuesday.

Good Morning America: In Boston, George Stephanopoulos spoke with Bill Iffrig, the 78-year-old marathon runner who was knocked off his feet by the first blast. His fall was captured on video and has become one of the lasting images of the tragedy. Iffrig is fine and was helped across the finish line. READ FULL STORY

Fox & Friends pranked by aspiring comedian

On Monday, Fox & Friends invited former UT-Austin student Max Rice to talk about why he shifted his political allegiance from Obama to Romney. What they didn’t know at the time was that Rice is an aspiring comedian and agreed to the interview in order to make the network look foolish. Was he successful? That depends on what you deem “funny.”

I won’t recite the entire clip, but I will say that Rice didn’t do much by way of comedy. He made a dumb joke about host Gretchen Carlson’s Miss America title, but most of his routine consisted of shifting nervously in his chair and responding like a 10-year-old. It’s not so much funny as it is uncomfortably priggish. READ FULL STORY
