“The Joy Behar Show” (which previously aired on Headline News until December of last year) will air nightly Monday-Thursday at 6pm and will repeat later the same evening in primetime. The timely and topical series will showcase Behar’s trademark sense of humor and unique brand of conversation and provide her with a platform to discuss the latest headlines, pop culture events and anything else that comes to mind.
Featuring a regular rotating ensemble of journalists, analysts and political satirists the program will focus on political events, social issues and relevant topics that impact the American zeitgeist.
Her ensemble cast, title and premiere date will be announced later this summer.
Though the show will not begin airing on Current TV until September, Behar will guest anchor a week on the network beginning 6/18 while Governor Eliot Spitzer, host of “Viewpoint” will be on a scheduled summer vacation. “Joy Behar: One Week Only *Until the Fall” will air Monday-Friday that week at 8p ET/ 7p CT and will offer viewers a taste of her upcoming nightly show, featuring conversations with a mix of journalists, newsmakers and celebrities.
“Joy Behar is a beloved veteran television personality with her finger on the pulse of what viewers care about,” commented Current TV Chairman Al 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.”
