This is NOT a defense of the loud mouthed and abrasive Bill Maher, but... ever feel like you've been cheated? (photo of Jimmy Kimmel, the new Mr. USA)

Politically Incorrect" CANCELLED!
Tue May 14, 2002
ABC is canceling Bill Maher's late-night topical talk show, "Politically Incorrect," and replacing it with an entertainment show led by Comedy Central's Jimmy Kimmel, co-host of "The Man Show," an unabashedly stupid and infantile "beer-and-babes" comedy that revels in being sexist. The new show is scheduled to premiere in January.
"Politically Incorrect" was believed to be in trouble ever since Maher, in the wake of the Sept. 11 terrorist attacks, was quoted as referring to past United States military actions as "cowardly." FedEx and Sears pulled their advertising from the show.
ABC Chairman Lloyd Braun said Maher's controversial comments had nothing to do with the decision to replace him. "We made a decision to go with straight entertainment programming in late-night," Braun said on Tuesday. The network is interested in building a late-night entertainment franchise to reach desirable younger viewers.
So, all you "desirable younger viewers" out there... are you ready to completely abandon the few thoughts left stirring in your heads, and give yourselves over to college frat boy pranks, keg parties, and hordes of giggling bimbos? Sure, I knew you were! Welcome to the "new normalcy"... where you thankfully accept the hogwash we give you. Drink up! Forget your worries! Listen to our sexist jokes, watch the airheads shimmy and shake... don't forget to watch the advertisments... you know, our advertisers make it all possible!
