Yes, Geraldo Will Be At Large on FOX 8

When it was first announced that Fox News Channel reporter/weekend host Geraldo Rivera would do a weekday show for the Fox network's owned-and-operated stations, we assumed local WJW "FOX 8" would be along for the ride. And sure enough, it will be.

At most of the FOX O&O's, Geraldo's new half-hour show will replace "A Current Affair". That'll indeed be the case in Cleveland, where "Geraldo at Large" will slip into the 7 PM weeknight slot starting a week from today.

Not only have we seen the promos, but the showy reporter/host himself was in Cleveland this morning, co-hosting WJW's "FOX 8 News In The Morning" live from the station's South Marginal Road studios. We only saw the clip on the FOX 8 6 PM show tonight, so we don't know if he nudged anyone aside to promote his new show. (It's a joke, people! Don't sue us!)

What really gets me about the Geraldo/A Current Affair situation is how quickly Fox pulled the plug on it. Sure, it's been on the O&Os since January, but it was on the non-O&Os for less than a month before it was cancelled.

I almost wonder if one of the non-owned stations is going to cry "bait and switch" over this.
