(Newser) – Glenn Beck’s legion of devotees will finally get to see their favorite pundit’s face again tonight, when Beck launches his new online-only show. Titled simply Glenn Beck, the program will resemble his old Fox show—complete with chalkboards—but it’ll be a whopping two hours long and include several new contributors, Beck tells the Wall Street Journal.

Beck’s show will be the flagship for his Internet venture, GBTV, which already boasts more than 230,000 subscribers—more than Oprah Winfrey’s OWN, which had only 156,000 in June. It’s on pace for more than $20 million in revenue, and as owner, Beck's take of that will likely dwarf his old $2.5 million Fox News salary. “GBTV is not for slugs,” Beck boasted. “It's news for people who want to get involved and play a role in saving our country.”
