Al Gore to Launch "Youth Network"

NEW ORLEANS (Reuters) - Former Vice President Al Gore plans to build a youth-oriented cable television network that he hopes will become an independent voice in a media industry dominated by large conglomerates, he said on Tuesday.

Gore led an investor group that bought Newsworld International from Vivendi Universal (V.N: Quote, Profile, Research) (EAUG.PA: Quote, Profile, Research) for an undisclosed sum. He plans to relaunch the channel, which has not yet been renamed, to focus on public affairs and entertainment for 18 to 34 year olds, Gore said, and will not have a political affiliation.

Another report said the network would be "a combination of CNN and MTV."

10. Yo! Robert Reich Raps

9. The Lizzie MacGuire Economic Week in Review

8. The New 21 Jump Street, in which Peter DeLuise reprises his role as an undercover cop, now captain of his unit; the young-looking cops will no longer be narcs, but will instead be charged with infiltrating and bringing to justice rightwing extremists who "question the patriotism" of young liberals and "chill their right to dissent"

7. On the Prowl, a late-night show hosted by Bill Clinton, combining political chat with dating-tips

6. Win a Dream Date With Paul Begala!

5. Beavis & Bob Shrum

4. The Wonkette Show, hosted by Ana Marie Cox, a fast-moving self-described "squawk show" featuring political gossip and sensual anal erotica

3. The Nightly News with "Downtown" Julie Brown, featuring trademark sign-off, "Wubba wubba wubba-- courage"

2. The Prizzip, an urban high-school drama featuring Al Gore as a wise, sensitive principal who advises his inner-city students on the topics that matter most to them, such as drug abuse, teen pregnancy, and the CAFE fuel-standard "loophole" for light-trucks and SUV's

...and the Number One New Show on Al Gore's "Youth News Network"...

1. An untitled "politicom" to star Paulie Shore; in a move hailed by industry insiders as "groundbreaking," the date upon which the show will be cancelled for low ratings has already been scheduled
