(Newser) – Larry King is returning to US living rooms by way of Moscow. The Suspendered One has signed a deal to host a new show called Politics With Larry King on RT, the Russian government's English-language news channel, the network announced today. The show will be produced by the same company that produces King's current online-only show Larry King Now, which RT has also agreed to air, the Wall Street Journal reports.

This isn't King's first brush with Russia. He's on the advisory board of a Georgian TV station with a pro-Kremlin bent, and RT aired the third-party presidential debate King hosted last year. The announcement for his new show hints that King will feature the kind of political outcasts that appeared in that event; King boasts that he "helped usher Ross Perot into the national conversation," and promises to provide "a platform to those with real alternative visions for our country's future."

RTV is great, I enjoy watching their no-holds-barred expose of greed capital's thievery. But LARRY KING? Are they going to embalm him and play a tape?

Say it ain't so, Larry. Say it ain't so.
