According to the NYT, Keith will announce tomorrow morning that he’s launching a new show on – wait for it – Current TV. What the hell is Current TV? I just looked it up. Here’s one of its prime time hits.
In each episode of “Kill It, Cook It, Eat It,” a diverse group of participants is challenged to procure their main course the old-fashioned way: by hunting and killing their chosen prey, butchering it in the slaughterhouse, helping to prepare it in the kitchen, and ultimately sampling it at the dinner table. Some may enjoy the process while others recoil, but for each diner it’s an intense journey that just may change their perspectives – and appetites – forever.
I checked my Cox Cable guide to see if I even get Current TV. I don’t. But maybe that’ll change. The Times said Al Gore is one of the channel’s founders/owners and he lives in my ‘hood.
(No, my house isn’t that big, and we don’t have a pool.) Maybe Gore will arrange for Cox to carry the new “Countdown.” Actually, I guess Keith won’t be calling his new show that; it must be in his contract with MSNBC that he has to have a different name the next time around. All I know is that I’ve missed his pontificating since he and his latest network parted ways. Rachel Maddow is very smart, but Keith shook the place up. I wish him luck in his new venture. Or should I wish his bosses luck? I give the relationship a year, tops.
