NEWSFLASH FROM MANCOW: FOX DECIDED AT THE LAST MINUTE TO MOVE THE BROADCAST TO A DIFFERENT NIGHT TO AVOID GETTING BURRIED ALIVE IN GREEN ON ST. PATRICK'S DAY. NEW BROADCAST DATE TBD ]
This just in…
Long time no Mancow on local airwaves. But you know, given the slippery slope terrestrial radio personalities face in today’s metered ratings world, it’s lucky anybody besides Johnny Dare actually still has a high-rated show and a paycheck worth crowing about.
Mancow syndicates his show nationally out of Chicago on Talk Radio Network.
A former disciple of infamous KC radio bad boy Randy Miller, Mancow’s recorded a pair of one hour specials to air on Fox Television this today and tomorrow – March 17th and 18th – and next Saturday and Sunday, March 24th and 25th.
In a release, Mancow TV Worldwide "promises to throw traditional TV norms out the window with its no-holds-barred, politically incorrect interviews. According to Muller, his show will be the ‘cold shower to sober up an America drunk on political correctness.’ It is a fusion of many things—politics, entertainment, news, etc. One thing it won’t be is conventional."
Like anybody who’s followed Mancow’s career in the slightest would suspect it would.
Mancow’s show doesn’t show up on this weekend’s online programming guide on FOX 4, so it may take a bit of poking around to catch his new act.
The taping goes down at 12:30 p.m. today and next Saturday at Fox headquarters in New York, Mancow says.
So we’ll see.
Meanwhile, Mancow offered no specifics on what to expect, but he did text share a nice little rant about how the liberal media’s been beating up on fellow Missourian Rush Limbaugh.
"The way the left wing media and the libs are treating Rush is like he is the most evil person on the planet," Mancow says. "Worse than Hitler, Stalin, Mao, and Pol Pot combined. I thought that I should come up with some extreme nonsense to match the libs outrageous claims. There are Jack Bauer and Chuck Norris facts all over the place. So I came up with (some) ‘Rush Limbaugh is so evil’ facts:
Before Satan ruled hell, Rush readied the place for him first.
Rush takes babies from candy.
Rush doesn’t host Tea Party events. He hosts Kool-Aid events using Jim Jones recipe.
Rush bought the planet Mars. That’s why there are no signs of life there anymore.
Rush was great at playing hide and go seek with kids. They were never seen again.
Rush likes planting things in his backyard. So far the count is over 30 foreign houseboys.
Rush frequently donates blood to the Red Cross. Its blood he took from unconscious hobos.
Rush bought the Sahara forest. Look at it today.
Rush sued his secretary for every penny she had in a sexual harassment lawsuit. He claimed she inappropriately touched the palm of his hand with her ass.
Rush was an informant for law enforcement when children were operating illegal lemonade stands.
Rush visited George W Bush in Texas when Bush was Governor there. Rush asked Bush if he could push the button that initiates the lethal injection to death row convicts.
Rush challenged Stevie Wonder to a staring contest. Steven Hawking to a poetry reading contest. And Christopher Reeve to a fist fight.
Rush buys up battered women shelters and rape crisis centers, and then evicts the occupants and turns the places into strip clubs for men."
I think it’s safe to say that Mancow’s playing the tongue-in-cheek card here.
