Dear Viewers,

Last night was a short night — I got home about 2 a.m. ET. I was not closing the bars — I worked until 1 a.m., remember? I have to get to work early, so I am putting you to work for the blog with your e-mails.

On Monday I will post the "behind the scenes" pictures, but today you are the bloggers.

Here are your e-mails and yes, random picked:

E-mail No. 1

Good morning Greta,
Great show last night... It was nice to see you smile so often in the show last night, it was so upbeat, and I really felt like I was there. I really enjoyed it and watched the entire show.
Nice work, thanks for sharing the festivities with us.
Have a restful day!

Watched your interview last night of the two military gentlemen at the Inaugural Ball. You tried ever so hard to get them to oppose the war, some aspect of the war, some aspect of Afghanistan, and then when all else failed you tried to get to say SOMETHING negative about the President. Good try ... guess it didn't work! When will the media learn that the majority of people who have the right to complain about what our military is engaged in (those who are) as well as its leader are by a large percentage supportive!

ANSWER: A quick question, "What are you smoking?"

Dear Greta,
Fabulous job! Get some well deserved rest now.
God bless,
Charlie Capozzoli

ANSWER: Charlie — thanks for the note. As for sleep, I got off "easy" compared to the people who set up our remote show and have to dismantle it — they worked longer and harder.

Thank you for interviewing the various sailors, marines, and soldiers on your special Inaugural On the Record coverage. As a former Air Force historian I appreciate your salute to the men and women who stand on the frontlines of freedom.

ANSWER: Chris — it is a thrill for me to meet our sailors, Marines, soldiers etc., I am lucky that I get to meet so many.

Greta, I enjoyed all three hours of your inaugural coverage tonight. Why didn't Greg Kelly wear a tuxedo? I heard Ceci Connolly ask for blankets this afternoon while covering (sorry, no pun intended) the parade. I guess she forgot about the last blanket she used, huh?! :)

P.S. Couldn't somebody sneak a camera shot of "On Wisconsin" with you and former Speaker Gingrich? :)

ANSWER: I think my singing of "On Wisconsin" would be the end of my career — the only thing worse, would be me dancing for the cameras. As for Ceci, the two of us are always freezing on sets.

I am so angry with you people. You turned what was to be an evening at the Balls for all of us here at home into a yuk evening. I got out of bed to let you know what a lousy job everyone did. The balls started at 7:00 but it was more important to listen to you and the others instead of allowing us to see the people who came to the ball and what they wore.
This was not a night to listen to politics.
We wanted to go and party. The evening was over before I got to see Laura's dress full length. I kept changing the stations to CNN, C-SPAN, MSNBC and FOX. All of you were alike. Too full of yourselves to shut up for one evening. I only got a quick shot of the twins. I could not tell you what either was wearing. People tune into the Oscars to watch the beautiful dresses and the stars not to hear what the stars have to say. Likewise we turned into the Balls to see the beautiful dresses and the peoples people not to listen and see you. You bombed big time.

Don King and Stephen Baldwin were the two, new freshest faces that I have seen in the Republican political scene. They were interesting and entertaining. Pass this on please — from a middle aged voting (Republican) female.

E-mail No. 8

Hi Greta!
What's up with you welching on the deal to sing to Newt!? That would have made my night!
For shame!

ANSWER: His wife thanked for me not asking her to sing "On Wisconsin" with me on camera.

E-mail No. 9

Greta should work over at CBS. She's as sneaky as they are.

E-mail No. 10

Earlier tonight you said that President Reagan died earlier this year. Of course you know that's not true. President Reagan died last year. But then you knew that, you just misspoke.
Best Regards,

Greta your interview with Stephen Baldwin showed down deep where your head is at. You dug like you wanted to reach the other side of the earth to get him to say something negative about the President. Careful, your liberal slip is showing.

Hi Greta
You sure do a nice job of interviewing. I am impressed with how you do not Judge people. You are so fair. That was a nice interview with the soldiers. I cringe at most other interviewers. It is getting hard to watch what is on television these days. Let me tell you the news coverage is just terrible and getting worse by the day.
You're great — keep up the good work. Stay warm,

I am a news junkie that generally only watches FOX News. I have it on my cable at home and at work and I have it on my satellite radio in my car. It drives my husband crazy — he thinks I should turn to something else once in a while. I actually do listen to other programming — he exaggerates.
Well, he was shocked last night when he came to bed and I wasn't watching FOX. I just couldn't! That was the most annoying broadcast ever!
Please don't ever try to broadcast in the middle of a crowd like that again. The idiots in the background trying to get their mugs on TV were distracting and the background noise was unbearable. I don't see how you could concentrate on your guests — even with both earpieces.
Usually love your show and always love your blog. Keep up the good work!
