Eliot Spitzer Loves Doing TV: “Nobody’s watching, but I’m having a great time”

Hi boss Algore must love hearing this.

I caught up with Eliot Spitzer while he was waiting for his guest to arrive and asked him how he’s faring over at Current TV. “Nobody’s watching, but I’m having a great time,” he told me. “I don’t mean to be facetious, but I am really enjoying myself. It’s like having a cocktail party with friends every night.” Pausing for a moment he added, “Somebody needs to buy the network.” And perhaps they will, he mused, if for no other reason than to snap up Current’s distribution system.  Either way, New York’s former governor isn’t quitting his day job, so to speak. “I’m glad all my investments are in real estate, not media companies, but if someone can make money at it, great.” Indeed.

Raise your hand if you even knew he was still on television.

    CurrentTV must be a premiere tax haven/write off for investors. It surely hasn’t returned even pennies on the dollar for anyone who is funding it. How it even stays on the air is a mystery. At least Spitzer is honest. He isn’t in it for the public, for the investors, or for any other reason but one: his own amusement.
