‘Meet the Jackass’? This happened: Meghan McCain lands talk show on Pivot; Update: #MeghanMcCainTVShowNames

Meghan McCain is, like, totally getting her own show. Squee!

Oh, the humanity. These are the longest fifteen minutes ever. Meggie Mac teased the announcement last night via Twitter. Sans boob photo this time.

No one asked, toots.

Then came the news of the new “docu-talk” show on Pivot. Pivot?

The fact that Pivot gave you a show, and are calling it “Raising McCain,” is all the information we need to know, thanks. Well, except for this:

pivot is a new television network from Participant Media — the people that brought you movies and documentaries like Lincoln, Food, Inc., and An Inconvenient Truth.

Shocking. Said no one ever.

Actor and comedian Michael Ian Black took a break from Twitter trolling backfires to swoon at the news.

They are BFFs, you see. Other Twitter users didn’t swoon. They wondered what in the world did we all do to deserve this?

Yes, she did.

Zing. Will best bud Sandra Fluke be a guest? Conservative-bashing will be a staple, natch. See, Meggie is super cool and edgy and stuff, you stick-in-the-mud rubes! It’s totally far more more edgy to be a sheep like Meggie. Plus, she wears Uggs.

Stay tuned, and have the hurl bags ready.

Update: Aching. Sides.

Sadly, no. Well, we are laughing at her and not with her. But the show … it’s real. And it will not be spectacular. But, the mockery sure is.

Givers!

More, please!

  • Scott Carroll

    “Raising McCain”? Ugh. Who thought up that title? They’re fired. In related news, I no longer want to be a part of any reality in which Meghan McCain is given a talk show. I’m going to go drink myself into an alcoholic stupor. Sober me up when it’s cancelled.

    I would suggest her first guest should be Chelsea Clinton and they can talk about what it is like to be a big time talented journalist with your own show which was granted based purely on merit ( and demand from the public)

    • Jack Deth

      It’s something found somewhere on the low wattage end of the media spectrum.
      Somewhere between “24/7 Farm Reports” and the FCC “End of Broadcast Logo”.

    She’ll soon be joining her bestest friends from Current on al Jazeera when the leftists at Pivot get tired of losing billions every year. At least then all we’ll have to look at is her burqa.

    Divot TV? What the hell is that?…, oh, oh…, ‘Pivot TV’…, OK, what the hell is that? How about Olbie as a premier guest. They could compare demographics and discuss the dynamics of utterly failed shows as contrasted with shows that are doomed to fail.

    I Heard the news today Oh,boy,
    About a lucky girl who made the grade,
    And though the news was rather sad,
    Well,I just had to laugh,
    I saw the photograph,

    I just had to look,
    Having read the book,
    “America you sexy bitch”
    I knew the score, she is a clueless bore,
    Now they know how many holes it takes to fill the Albert Hall…..

    Maybe Meghan could have Sarah Palin on her first show, oh wait, no, Sarah IS
    ” just more smarter” than that.

    • ClinkinKY

      Nah, has to be Chelsea Clinton.

  • Guest

    She let young people have the news,
    About a lucky girl who made the grade,
    And the news was rather sad
    Well I just had to laugh,
    I saw the photograph……..

    A crowd of people turned away
    But I just had to look,
    I had read the book
    “America you sexy bitch”

    Now a TV show
    About a narcissist,
    Who could not out-debate her first guest,
    She was a terrible pest,
    Who knew Honey Boo Boo,
    Was such an intellect……

    She woke up, got out of bed,

    Not a thought was in her head.
    Found a coat, and grabbed her hat,
    Got in the limo in seconds flat,
    The teleprompter spoke and I went into a dream,

    Pivot, I will love to turn you off

  • VerminMcCann

    “The only way I can describe my series is it’s meet the press meets
    jackass – on the road talk show, and it’s the opportunity of a lifetime!”

    Okay, good. Now, how would someone who isn’t a jabbering moron describe it?

  • Garth Haycock

    Participant? Pivot? Are these some sort of public access television with a signal range of 25 yards?

  • blueniner

    Like the old Herman Hermits song,She is a “Must To Avoid”…….What no MSLSD channel? What the hell is pivot? that is what the viewer will do…Pivot…..

    Why did they give this talk show slot to a rich white girl?

  • cscape

    ah yes….. the “poster child” for the LOW INFO voters (and she’s only marginally more liberal than her dad)

  • JustLikeAnimals

    She compares her new show to “Meet the Press meets Jackass.” Prolly more like “serious journalism gets a jackass.”
    That said, if Meghan promises to flash her breasts at the beginning of every show, I promise to watch the beginning of every show.
