POLITICALLY INCORRECT TO BE DUMPED IN FAVOR OF MAN SHOW'S JIMMEY KIMMEL
This comes as mostly no surprise. After months of hinting, ABC is pulling the plug on Bill Maher and Politically Incorrect - ABC to End 'Politically Incorrect'. No great loss, as Maher's show was much better on Comedy Central when they used to match up political party mouthpieces with Motorhead's Lemmy.

The part I don't get is replacing the show with a more traditional talk show starring Jimmy Kimmel, late of the Man Show and Win Ben Stein's Money. Kimmel is kind of an amusing guy, but isn't late night talk vs Leno/Letterman just a death trap? Have we learned nothing from Chevy Chase?
