Fox News Channel is teaming with the exec producer of “24” to produce a news satire show for conservatives. Joel Surnow, co-creator of “24,” is shooting two half-hour pilots described as ” ‘The Daily Show’ for conservatives,” due to air in primetime on Saturdays in January.
The pilot segments will be co-anchored by comedians Kurt Long and Susan Yeagley and feature a family of correspondents. “There will be some elements of ‘The Daily Show’ and some of ‘Weekend Update,’ ” Surnow said.
Sounds like a hoot.
