Hahahaha! Imagine you are Larry King, The Living Museum of ’80s Power Suspenders and you read in the press that your Talkie is being replaced by some fat twit from a UK gameshow, and you still have a year left on your contract?
- Threaten to horsewhip those buggers from the network to within an inch of their lives?
- Threaten to sic one of your Wives, Succubi or Harpies on them?
- Threaten to never interview Saint Ronnie again?
Well, whichever choice it was, it worked: the network is walking back the announcement of replacing him.
The potential replacement is a judge on a talent show? That’s appropriate, since you wouldn’t want a news network to do anything, you know, newsy.
