Finally a Way to Boost ‘Larry King’ Tune-In?

CNN’s ratings woes have been much in the news lately, as have Tiger Woods’ admitted infidelity and related marital woes.

So let’s be generous and credit CNN’s Larry King with taking one for the team.

King and his seventh wife, Shawn Southwick, have filed for divorce, and seriously, if those two kids can’t find happiness together, who can? But the larger picture is that King’s situation has not only brought publicity to CNN but deflected attention from the channel’s ratings performance.

As for sifting through the details, well, take that as another sign that it’s TMZ’s world now, and the rest of us just live in it. In any event, look for a sudden influx of paparazzi outside of Nate ‘n Al’s in Beverly Hills for the next few mornings. If those jackals had any decency at all at least they’d order something.

The only remaining questions are who will land the first exclusive with Southwick, and which member of the once-happy couple will be cast on the next edition of “Dancing With the Stars.”

As a Fox News Channel spokesperson would say, we wish them well.
