Joy Behar has been chosen as the newest addition to Current TV’s roster and is set to begin hosting her new show beginning this September.
Behar- who is best known for her Daytime Emmy Award winning work on “The View”- will hope to prove her former network wrong after they canceled her show just last year. HLN cited low ratings as the reason for letting the show go.
Currently titled “The Joy Behar Show”, this new Current TV program will air Monday through Thursdays starting at 6 pm, and then once more later in the evening. The new addition will feature a rotating group of journalists and political analysts and will focus mainly on current events, political issues, and relevant topics to America as a whole.
Behar won’t have to wait long to get in the swing of things as she is set to fill in for vacationing Current TV host Eliot Spitzer who hosts his own show, “Viewpoint.” The network title for her fill in work will be “Joy Behar: One Week Only* Until Fall” and will air next Monday through Friday.
Current TV chairman and Former Vice President Al Gore has nothing but compliments and admiration to offer “The View” talk show host as he believes that Joy Behar will be a great addition to the team.
“Joy Behar is a beloved veteran television personality with her finger on the pulse of what viewers care about,” says Gore.
“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.”
