Mediaite broke the news today that GBTV's "The B.S. of A. with Brian Sack" would be getting its own thirty minute show on Glenn's new network. You can read their analysis here.
The statement from GBTV follows:
“The B.S. of A. with Brian Sack is a half-hour political comedy show premiering in October on GBTV. Sack’s mandate: Stay objective, rational and witty as he views politics and pop culture through a nonpartisan lens. Host Brian Sack is author of ‘The B.S. of A. – A Primer in Politics for the Incredibly Disenchanted’ and previously served as Czar-at-Large for Beck’s Insider Extreme network. His staff’s credits include Saturday Night Live, The Late Show with David Letterman, HBO, MTV and several other three-letter
From Brian Sack:
‘The B.S. of A. is a half-hour comedy news program. Our goal is to tackle the B.S. inherent in American politics and pop culture. It won’t be for the thin-skinned – we’re going to be completely indifferent to political parties or ideology. In fact, I’m making the staff take the “no sacred cows” pledge, and as soon as we figure out how to translate that phrase into Latin we will make that the show’s motto. Because Latin makes you sound smarter than you are. I’d like to put that on flags and cups. I have to think about merchandising. Glenn keeps saying he wants to put Jon Stewart “out of business.” First of all, I think we should manage expectations. If he really wants to do that I’m going to need about 73 more people. Secondly, I don’t really want to do that. I believe the world is a better place when you have a wide variety of comedy shows. All I want to do is put on a comedy show that people who enjoy laughing at this country’s nonsense will enjoy. There’s no reason to put anyone out of business, though I’ve heard several strong arguments against George Lopez.’”
