Larry King announced yesterday that he will be ending his long-time CNN talk show this November after 25 years behind the mike.
Judging by the ratings of his show, this announcement should affect almost no one.
Sorry, I know when someone who does something for a long time decides to hang it up, there are supposed to be all sorts of testimonials about how great he or she was, even if they weren't.
But King's show has been rather inane for the past decade or so, with some of the least insightful questions of his guests one can imagine. I can't even remember the last time I tuned in.
The network has seen a huge drop in his numbers over the recent years as cable viewers have flocked to Sean Hannity on Fox and Rachel Maddow on MSNBC.
I'm not sure how much King's recent marriage troubles played into things, but for struggling CNN, the network should have considered different options long before this.
WEDNESDAY'S BEST BETS: "In Plain Sight" (USA, 10 p.m.) wraps up its season tonight, meaning this is your last chance for a Marshall (Frederick Weller) witticism for several months.
Also new tonight is "Hot In Cleveland" (TVLand, 10 p.m.), which has put up some big cable numbers thanks to the presence of Betty White.
