Sundance Channel will air a special election night edition of “The Al Franken Show,” on November 2nd at 11:30pm. The political humorist will be broadcasting live from the Kerry campaign’s election-night headquarters in Copley Square in Boston. The show will contain breaking news as well as segments taped earlier that day.
“My pledge to Sundance Channel viewers is this: We will be monitoring actual real news sources and, if anything happens while we are on the air, you will hear about it literally seconds after you would hear about it elsewhere,” quipped Franken.
