Make Way For Al Jazeera: Producers Strike Joy Behar’s Set In The Middle Of Farewell Broadcast

In preparation for the transition of Current TV to Al Jazeera America at the end of August, Joy Behar hosted a melancholy farewell program on Thursday with an all-star panel of guests. Eager to get started with the rebranding, however, the network’s producers appear to have decided that they did not need to wait for the end of the show to change the network’s signage and strike the set.

Midway through the final segment of Behar’s last show, after network co-founder Al Gore had said his goodbyes to the program (at least, that’s what they would have us believe) and following some reminiscing from the program’s guests, a team producers invaded the set and began to disassemble their surroundings.

Even the name of Behar’s program, Say Anything, became Said Everything for the show’s final night.

This may not be goodbye,” Behar said in conclusion. “Who knows? We might just come back somewhere else — like Univision, Telemundo or TVMONDE.”

“To everyone, I say shalom, adios, ciao, au revoir, auf wiedersehen, khoda hafez,” she concluded.
