Amazon Fishbowl with Bill Maher

That just rolls off the tongue doesn't it? Apparently Bill Maher is going to do infomercials on Amazon. From the AP article:

"All of the guests on 'Amazon Fishbowl With Bill Maher' will be promoting a new release, such as a book, DVD or CD, and Savitt said the shows will include ways for people to immediately buy the products the performers are touting."

You can't say Amazon isn't trying to diversify its business... You also can't say this is something I would watch :)

You probably don't spend a lot of time in deep communion with Oprah's Book Club, either, but she's been credited with singlehandledly reviving the fiction-reading habits of the American middle class.

I'm not sure how many middle-class Americans 1) listen to Bill Maher or 2) have a close affiliation with his personal views. Personally I think he's funny as heck, but STILL that won't make me go to Amazon to listen to him run an infomercial...
