(Newser) – Get excited, because we're about to introduce you to your new favorite show: Starting this summer, Meghan McCain will be hosting her very own talk show. Raising McCain will air on Pivot, a new cable channel targeting 18- to 34-year-olds that launches in August, the Huffington Post reports. It's not a traditional talk show: It will feature McCain going on the road, and she described it yesterday as "like Meet the Press meets Jackass." She also called it "uncensored" and "real." One slightly odd example of a topic she'll cover: a meth lab explosion in Arizona.

"We're told ... that young people can't have news because we're just tweeting all the time, and that's just bulls--t," McCain says. Mediabistro reacts to the news with an amusing article titled, "Meghan McCain Is Getting Her Own TV Show for You to Hate." Of the aforementioned quote, Chris O'Shea writes, "'Can't have news' doesn't really mean anything, so don't bother wasting your time trying to figure out what the hell McCain is talking about."
