Larry King is back for a nightly chatfest!
But the technology-loving icon isn’t returning to cable news. Instead, he’s taking the talk show to a new medium. Produced by Ora.TV, a new on-demand digital television network, and streamed on Hulu, the 30-minute Larry King Now will air new episodes Monday through Thursday. “I have always been driven to innovate, from my time on radio, to the first call-in show on national television, to being an early adopter of online columns and Twitter,” King said in a press release. “I am thrilled about our partnership with Hulu – I love being able to interact directly with audiences, and digital TV allows me to do this in new and powerful ways.”
Much like on his long-running CNN show, King will interview a mix of both politicians and entertainers. His first-week lineup includes Seth MacFarlane, Meghan McCain, and Matthew McConaughey.
The first episode, with MacFarlane, is already online. Most of the show is a standard Q&A, but the ending – with MacFarlane teaching King how to draw cartoons – is something we never would have seen on Larry King Live. You can check out a clip below:
The whole episode can be viewed on Hulu.
