Glen Beck Leaving FoxNews, At Least As Daily TV Host; Will Instead Produce Occasional Shows

His show will end later this year, but he has some sort of deal where he'll continue to develop shows for FoxNews.

I guess that means specials.

I'm not a Glenn Beck TV show fan (but man do his radio bits kill me). I think I had two problems with his show: First, as an adult male, I have a subconscious and irrational dislike of being taught to. I'm not saying this is Glenn Beck's problem; I'm saying it's mine. But I'm sure there are a lot of people who are subconsciously resentful of a professorial sort of lecture.

The other problem, from what I saw, is that he seemed to have Big Theories like every week. I just don't think you can come up with a Big Theory every week. Not without an awful lot of stinkers. Giving so much of his program over to Big Theory Explication seemed to me to be a mistake. I just always wondered where that funny, loose guy from the radio went at 5 PM every day. He just became this very jumped-up Mannichean prophet.

I'd even watch his Big Theory specials. As long as I knew they were not being padded with dubious sub-theories and shaky assertions, and we're being produced just to fill the hour.

I'm sort of thinking this was largely Beck's call. Because that show must have been pretty exhausting to do.
