Former Google CEO Eric Schmidt Looking for TV Gig

He is looking for a job at CNN. He has been working with Parker-Spitzer's executive producer on a new show.

A source told us, "Eric wants to be a talk-show host. He's been working with Liza to develop a show, but he has not yet been picked up by any network. . . . "Eric Schmidt has been looking for a TV job for over a year," said a CNN insider. "But the pilot he filmed with Liza was a complete disaster."

Remember his history of creepy, cavalier statements when faced with concerns about privacy? Reading the NY Post article, I see that I missed one. He said people concerned about pictures taken by Google Street View cameras "could just move."

I checked with the in-house Ace-o-Spades time travel agent and found some future quotes from Schmidt's new show at CNN:

  • Isn't that dress a bit tight, Secretary Clinton?
  • You don't have a case against the peeping tom. People in your building almost never shut their curtains. Especially those three women on the third floor.
  • Sometimes when I don't change my shirt for a few days it smells like bacon. How about yours?
  • Well, Mr. Krugman, perhaps if the New York Times wasn't a dreary, left-wing rag, run by an unqualified nepot, subscription numbers wouldn't be plummeting. Hmm?
  • Mr. Trumka, did anyone ever tell you that you look just like a hog? You look just like a hog, dude. Or like some sort of a caricature of a hog-man. Do you ever get that?
  • Mr. Zuckerman, do you like to fart at a board meetings? I sure did. Hah!

CNN should give him a shot. He couldn't do any worse than their current lineup.
