The Cricket's Daily 3: Hasselbeck landing on 'Fox & Friends'
Here's what's happening today in pop culture:
• Just when you thought "Fox & Friends" couldn't get any dumber, Fox News announces that "The View's" resident right-winger Elisabeth Hasselbeck will join the Fox morning show in September. She'll replace resident grown-up Gretchen Carlson, who is leaving the moronic Steve Doocy and Brian Kilmeade to host her own show on the network. [Entertainment Weekly]
• Actor-filmmaker-author-professor James Franco will be the next celebrity to be roasted in Comedy Central's hot seat. Though judging by his announcement on Instagram, he's already pretty baked. [JamesFrancoTV/Instagram, h/t Vulture]
• Singer Robin Thicke says it's "ridiculous" of critics to say the lyrics of his song "Blurred Lines' condone rape. [The Hollywood Reporter]
