    I've long been a fan of Cenk's; I feel like he was straitjacketed a bit at msnbc. I can't wait to watch him bring his online show to Current TV.

    I always thought I was a crazy liberal. Keith (Olberman) and Cenk have shown me that I am no where near as crazy as they are.

    I'll pass.

    He seemed to have been booted off of MSNBC without explanation. I don't get Current so I won't be able to watch him.

    msnbc signed Al Sharpton to host the 6PM hour. They offered Cenk a weekend show; he declined.

    He talked about it on Keith's CurrentTV show at the time as well.

    I liked him too. I don't get CurrentTV (I have cable), so I will not be able to watch. I wish Charter would get that channel here - or maybe it's exclusive to DirecTV...don't know.

    Nope, Current TV is not a channel exclusive to DIRECTV.
