“Who’s left?” you might think, considering the number of crazies already on Al Gore’s payroll. But now, “The View” co-host and resident disgruntled progressive is getting her own show on Current:
It will include a regular rotating round table of politicos, comedians and journalists. Behar’s round table – along with the title and exact premiere date – will be announced later this summer. Behar joined HLN in 2009 to host a general news and talk program. But as the network moved more toward crime and justice stories, including the Casey Anthony and Conrad Murray trials, Behar’s show became increasingly out of place on HLN. …
“Joy Behar is a beloved veteran television personality with her finger on the pulse of what viewers care about,” said Current TV chairman Al Gore in a statement. “Millions of Americans tune in daily to hear her take on the issues along with her inimitable style. We are honored that Current TV will be Joy’s new primetime home.”
Joy Behar, filling in for Eliot Spitzer, who replaced Keith Olbermann — that’s quite the cast of characters they’re gathering over there at Current.
