Joy Behar's show is going away at the end of the year on HLN.
---Your first question is probably--"who is Joy Behar?" A: She, I think, was a comedian or something at one point, and she's also the craziest member of the View.
---Your second question is probably: "She had a show on HLN?" A: Yes.
---Your 3rd question is probably: "How the hell did her show last this long?" A: You can chalk that up to the fact that they had a great staff that was actually able to take her invisible talents and turn it into something that actually lasted for a couple of years. A lot of them used to work with us when we were at HLN, and they were great.
Joy, however, is just not that bright. And she lies a lot. But, that's been documented a million times. My favorite has to be her appearance on Leno a while back. First, her justification for talking about Glenn on Leno:
JOY BEHAR: But um, he does, he talks about me. I'm on his list of 'I hate Glenn Beck.' It's like being on Nixon's enemies list. I loved it.
Hmmmm...I went back and checked to see if Glenn had ever mentioned Joy Behar on his Fox News show before this interview happened. I couldn't find one mention. Not one. Maybe there was one somewhere, but I couldn't find it. What she was referring to was a list of people bashing Glenn that one of our producers put together, of which Joy occupied about three seconds. It might surprise some, but Glenn isn't actually sitting in the edit room picking each individual clip of Glenn-bashers that airs on his show. Regardless, here's how the conversation ended up:
JAY LENO: I heard Glenn Beck was talking about you on his show.
JOY BEHAR: Oh, yeah, Glenn Beck. ... (awful joke)...But um, he does, he talks about me. I'm on his list of 'I hate Glenn Beck.' It's like being on Nixon's enemies list. I loved it. But, I mean, I don't hate him. I don't hate him...I don't hate him and I want him to know that. Where is it?
LENO: Right there.
BEHAR: Over here? OK. Glenn, listen, I don't hate you. Sincerely, Glenn Beck, from the bottom of my heart, I don't hate you. I don't give a flying f--- about you.
You can still see the video here, if you wish.
Back when I heard that clip, I thought is was the most ridiculous thing I'd ever heard. She seemed to me to be completely obsessed with Glenn. I can't say I watched the show every night, or ever, but there did seem to be a decent amount of clips on the internet of her bashing Glenn. Why would that be, if she didn't give a "flying f---" about him?
So, I off-handedly tasked an intern to see if she really was obsessing as much as I thought. Alas, I was mistaken. Joy really didn't give a "flying f---" about Glenn. Which is why she only talked about him on a couple of shows, 9-27-09 and 9-30-09.
Well, and the shows on 10-7, 10-13, and 10-14-09.
And 10-21, 10-22, 11-11, 11-17, 11-18, 11-23, 11-25, 11-30, 12-1, and 12-23-09 .
Oh, and of course she showed her complete indifference to Glenn on 1-21, 1-25, 2-4, 2-23, 3-10, 3-11, 3-22, 3-25, 4-6, 4-13, 4-19, 4-21, 4-29, 4-30, 5-6, 5-10, 6-1, 6-7, 6-28, 6-29, 7-6, 7-21, 7-26, 7-28, 8-2, 9-3, 9-10, 9-13, 9-22, 9-27, 9-29, 10-4, 10-14, 10-16, 10-18, 11-1, 11-5, and 11-11-10.
It was at this point, I told our intern to stop bothering. You get the point. Glenn Beck should have received a restraining order against Joy Behar she talked about him so much.
If Joy Behar really didn't give a "flying f---" about Glenn, creepily obsessing about him on every other episode is a really strange way of showing it.
