Rock Bottom: Joy Behar gets new show … on Current TV, Keith Olbermann jealous!/dbernstein/status/212213841302532097

Oh, our aching sides! The asinine harpy known as Joy Behar is leaving HLN for a stint at Al Gore’s Current TV. We know; it is rather shocking to learn that both those channels actually exist.

.@pfro was right yesterday — @JoyVBehar, formerly of HLN, is taking her show to Current TV. Not sure about the time slot.

@JoyVBehar will debut a show on CurrenTV, thereby delving further into irrelevance… #p2 #tcot via @mediaite

@JoyVBehar is coming to @Current next week at 8e/5p! More details here:

More from Current.

Put Some Joy In Your Night

You’ve probably missed her as much as we have! That’s why Current TV is bringing Joy Behar back to primetime television with a new show starting this fall. Channeling her trademark enthusiasm and wit Behar will be joined by an ensemble cast of progressive voices from journalists to economists, pundits to celebrities. This is Joy as you have never seen her before. If you think she is outspoken on “The View” just wait until you see her on Current.

If you can’t wait until September to bring Joy back into your life have no fear. Behar will be hosting a week-long special:
“Joy Behar: One Week Only *Until The Fall” starting on June 18th 8e/5p.

Stop, you’re slaying us! If by “trademark,” they mean non-existent.

We all wait with bated breath to see how the train wreck of a show will begin. Will she start with another segment on how home schooled children are demented? Or perhaps she will whip out the race card first thing and accuse white men of being “traumatized” by President Obama’s election? One thing of which we are certain; she will Godwin herself right out of the gate. If a useful idiot Godwins herself and no one is watching, does she make a sound?

Current TV replaces Olbermann with the only person on earth I'm less likely to watch than Olbermann:

Lol. RT @emzanotti: Keith Olbermann's Current TV replacement? Keith Olbermann in a wig.

Speaking of Keith Olbermann, someone is jealous!

Alas, another victim. Joy, Joy, Joy… RT @THRtv Joy Behar Joins Current TV

Blogger Ace of Spades hilariously weighs in on Behar’s move and the absurd claims that she is a huge comedic talent. Well, to be fair, if one counts providing huge giggle-worthy mocking potential, then we guess she’s super talented.

Joy Behar is a talent sandwich with extra talent piled high, stacked on toasted talent rye, smothered in talent-sauce and sauteed talent.

You know a comedian is a rock star when no one ever heard of her until Comedy Store legend Barbara Walters discovered her.

— iLoveScienceSexually (@AceofSpadesHQ) June 11, 2012

Barbara Walters discovered all the greats — Kinnison, MacDonald, Miller, Wright, even Rodney Dangerfield.

— iLoveScienceSexually (@AceofSpadesHQ) June 11, 2012

You just can't even talk about American Comedy without noting Barbara Walters' stable of crowd-killers.

— iLoveScienceSexually (@AceofSpadesHQ) June 11, 2012

I'll never forget hearing Joy Behar's first comedy album, the self-titled "Backfat"

— iLoveScienceSexually (@AceofSpadesHQ) June 11, 2012

I immediately burned all my Steve Martin records. I denounced them.

@AceofSpadesHQ Little known Queen of Comedy, Barbara Walters fact: She likes to work blue.

— John Davey (@juanitocabrone) June 11, 2012

I used to be able to quote Barbara Walters' "What kind of tree would you be?" act verbatim.

— iLoveScienceSexually (@AceofSpadesHQ) June 11, 2012

Anyone remember Behar's multiplatinum comedy albums, Let's Get Real and Behar: Live at Budokan? Every kind had a Behar tour shirt.

— iLoveScienceSexually (@AceofSpadesHQ) June 11, 2012

I remember buying one myself from the mall and *lying*, saying I went to her show, but my parents wouldn't let me, with the trampling deaths

— iLoveScienceSexually (@AceofSpadesHQ) June 11, 2012

anyway she's a magnificent talent. But you all know that about "National Treasure Joy Behar."

— iLoveScienceSexually (@AceofSpadesHQ) June 11, 2012

Now that is comedy gold. Gold! Take note, Behar.
