Fox News' Brian Kilmeade Teases Hannity About Hosting 'Fox & Friends': 'You'll Smell Like Liquor'

Early mornings are not in the primetime host's future

Fox News' Brian Kilmeade doesn't think primetime host Sean Hannity has a future in morning television because, among other things, he smells "like liquor" in the wee hours.

Kilmeade, typically a co-host of the 6 a.m. ET show "Fox & Friends," filled in for Laura Ingraham at 10 p.m. Wednesday. During the toss between "Hannity" and "The Ingraham Angle," Hannity offered to give his colleague a Thursday morning wake-up call.

"Now, I usually go to bed, Brian, about 3 or 4 a.m. If you'd like, I'll call you and give you a wake-up call. No excuses if you're tired tomorrow," Hannity joked.

Kilmeade bantered back, asking if Hannity had any interest in filling in for him on the morning show, which would require a trip into Manhattan before dawn.

"The odds of me getting up in time to be ready for 'Fox & Friends'... pretty low," said Hannity, who advised he'd need a little bit more of a warning if he were ever to take a morning slot.

"And you'll smell like liquor," said Kilmeade. "We don't want that."

"Probably," replied Hannity nonchanantly. "Yeah, no doubt."

The crews for the shows could be heard laughing in the background.
