According to MS-NBC, our proud ex-Governor will not be returning from his, er, "hiatus":
"I've decided to focus the majority of our resources on Monday-Friday primetime in 2004," the cable news channel's president, Erik Sorenson. said in a memo to his staff Tuesday night. "Consequently, the holiday hiatus for 'Jesse Ventura's America' will continue indefinitely." ... Sorenson said that Ventura will continue to serve as a political commentator for MSNBC during the 2004 campaign season.
Sorenson finally came to the same conclusion that Minnesotans discovered shortly after Jesse took office: he's not terribly bright, nor is he terribly interesting. The combination makes a deadly dull recipe for a talk-show host, as I posted when it first launched. Among the disasters the show visited upon hapless viewers was a recurring segment called "Dork of the Week", which would have been a more apt title for the entire show. As I related in the earlier post, he stuck with the same story for the year it took MS-NBC to develop the show, so that his first installment actually referred to an event that had occurred almost eighteen months earlier.
Fans of dumb-jock commentary will either have to wait until Election Night 2004 or the WWF for their fix. With any luck, Jesse the Mouth will fade into well-deserved obscurity.Sphere It View blog reactions
