Al Franken returns to cable's Fern Channel

The Sundance Network - apparently a "liberal" cable network for those who derive inspiration from polluting Montana, Wyoming, and Colorado with their presence or wishing that they could - is narrowcasting The Al Franken Show tonight. There will be a new episode each night this month. Apparently the episodes are shot a day ahead during his radio show, then the live tape is edited for highlights, then 59.5 minutes of filler, stuffing, and offal are added back in, thus creating a one hour show:
...Outspoken guests, ranging from political insiders and media critics to unconventional authors and entertainers, join Franken and his on-air co-host Katherine Lanpher for a refreshing alternative to homogenized news ("Oy!"), political spin ("Oy!!") and the official line from Washington power centers ("Oy!!!").

Who's actually surprised that the Sundance Network would do this?

Um...Robert "If you elect Bush, the rivers will turn to sludge" Redford owns the damn thing!
