Fortunately, MSNBC brings us another fix -- the emerging show from Air America personality Ed Schultz. Resembling a sort of square-headed Rush Limbaugh, Schultz's politics run more toward Keith Olbermann. But, let's face it: None of these guys are on TV to discuss sensible politics on either side of the aisle. They're on the air to pontificate, yell, scream and (in Schultz's case) have a borderline Network-ish nervous breakdown on camera every night.
Both shows returned to the airwaves Monday with new episodes. Both also had cable news celebrity cameos so big, no lightning fast news ticker announcing an accidental nuclear missile launch could draw your attention away from them.
The Daily Show returned with another appearance by CNN's gray-haired uber-anchor Anderson Cooper and an interesting interview with new Meet the Press moderator David Gregory. The Colbert Report picked up former Hannity and Colmes pushover Alan Colmes and wound things up with an interview with CNN reporter John King.
Fox News has announced their replacement for the outgoing Alan Colmes, the liberal ying to Sean Hannity's conservative yang on their self-titled debate show: it's Sean Hannity.
He's doing the show all by himself, so finally he has someone worthy of debating him. Stephen Colbert's "Formidable Opponent" will never be funny again.
As president of the Sean Hannity Fan Club, I am thrilled to announce that Sean Hannity's new hour-long, live program for Fox News will be debuting this Sunday. Hannity's America will include an in-depth feature story, debates with liberals, and interviews. I will be selling busts of Hannity made out of nuts and chocolate in celebration of this new show, and will also be constructing a giant replica of the conservative pundit out of old mufflers. Actually, they'll be mufflers I steal from cars in the parking lot, resulting in a cacophony of unmufflered engines serving as a noisy salute to Hannity.
Fox News' Sean Hannity isn't happy. It seems that the documentary This Divided State has raised the choler of the famous conservative and co-host of Hannity and Colmes. After you watch this footage from the film, you might begin to understand why. Hannity was brought to the ultra-conservative campus of Utah Valley State College before a controversial appearance by Michael Moore. Hannity says he plans to sue the filmmakers based on how the aforementioned footage was used. Of course, whether the footage was edited to make Hannity seem like a smug, self-righteous jerk or whether he actually is a smug, self-righteous jerk is for you to decide on your own.
