Larry King is making his TV comeback as a contributor to Jon Stewart’s Comedy Central show. After Larry was wheeled out of CNN last December, replaced by Piers Morgan, Comedy Central declared, with a straight face, “There’s not enough Larry on TV,” and is in early talks with him about being a regular on Stewart’s show.
One source said, “A single conversation has happened. It’s still extremely preliminary. He’ll be on every now and again, like Lewis Black. He’s not joining as a correspondent but a contributor.” But other sources said King is talking to his close friends as if it’s a done deal. Stewart was a staunch King supporter in his final days at CNN and even appeared on his final program. Stewart also told him, “You’re the last guy out of a burning building, my friend.” A Comedy Central rep told us, “We love Larry.”
So apparently does America’s viewing public – adding Larry Stewart’s show will be a boon to Comedy Central – as Larry brings with him a host of new viewers to the network.
