Al Gore's Current TV is quickly becoming the place where liberal commentators that fail go where they truly belong - somewhere virtually no one will ever see them.
In a press release published by TVNewser, it was revealed the next addition to Gore's deliciously irrelevant network is Joy Behar who just in November was canned by HLN for horrid ratings:
Beginning this September, Joy Behar, Emmy® award winning talk show host, will make her return to primetime on Current TV’s new hour-long series. “The Joy Behar Show” (working title) will air nightly Monday through Thursday at 6pm and will repeat later the same evening in primetime. The timely and topical series will showcase Behar’s trademark sense of humor and unique brand of conversation and provide her with a platform to discuss the latest headlines, pop culture events and anything else that comes to mind.
Featuring a regular rotating ensemble of journalists, analysts and political satirists the program will focus on political events, social issues and relevant topics that impact the American zeitgeist. Her ensemble cast, title and premiere date will be announced later this summer.
So Behar will join fellow CNN rejects Bill Press and Eliot Spitzer who also appear to be working their way down the ladder of television punditry success.
And now for a word from the Nobel Peace Prize-winner himself:
“Joy Behar is a beloved veteran television personality with her finger on the pulse of what viewers care about,” commented Current TV Chairman and former Vice President Al Gore. “Millions of Americans tune in daily to hear her take on the issues along with her inimitable style."
Actually millions of Americans didn't tune in to her daily when she was on HLN. That's why she got fired.
Of course, he's a liberal. What's he know about business - or virtually anything for that matter?
That all said, we at NewsBusters are thrilled to see Behar back in primetime.
She always made for great laughs - when she wasn't trying to be funny, that is.
