JOHN FUGELSANG TO HOST CURRENT TV WEEK IN REVIEW SERIES BEGINNING FRIDAY, OCTOBER 5 AT 6:00 & 9:00 PM ET

New Friday Night Addition, Entitled "John Fugelsang: So That Happened," Takes an Irreverent Look at the Weekly Headlines

Fugelsang's Nightly Series to Premiere Later This Year

New York, October 1, 2012 - Beginning Friday, October 5, Current TV will introduce a new weekly show to its lineup entitled "John Fugelsang: So That Happened." Airing at 6:00 pm and 9:00 pm ET, the hour-long program will serve as a precursor to the comedian's highly anticipated nightly series, which will premiere later this year. Fugelsang will be commenting on the week's events in news, pop culture, politics and the web, using plenty of video to share his selected highlights and lowlights from the week just ending. Comedian Frank Conniff, best known as Frank from "Mystery Science Theater 3000," will serve as head writer and will be a frequent contributor to the series.

Commenting on the new program, Fugelsang said: "First I would like to thank Joy Behar, whom I admire enormously, for occasionally letting me sit in her chair. Viewers have come to expect the unexpected from her show and we believe that 'So That Happened' will have the same kind of tone and irreverence while discussing what I believe to be some very serious and substantive topics."

John Fugelsang is an actor, comedian and commentator. He's been featured on MSNBC, CNN, FOX News, Dennis Miller, Air America, NPR, CNBC, and Current TV. He's been a regular on MSNBC's "The Ed Show" and "UP with Chris Hayes;" CNN's "Starting Point with Soledad O'Brien," HLN's "The Joy Behar Show;" FOX News' "Fox & Friends" and "Red Eye." He has co-hosted the conservative "Jay Severin Show," and been published on The Huffington Post and Daily Kos.

John Fugelsang lives in New York City's Greenwich Village, on the same block as Bob Dylan's 1st NYC apartment, with a girl named after Cleopatra's handmaiden, a cat named after Bix Beiderbecke, and a brand new baby named after Henry Miller.
