(Newser) – Meghan McCain is getting her own show on a new TV network targeting millennials. Raising McCain will debut on Pivot, a general entertainment network that launches Aug. 1. It's described as a documentary-talk series for viewers ages 15 to 34. McCain will star and serve as executive producer. The 28-year-old author and blogger told the Television Critics Association yesterday that the show lets her "be crazy, be myself, and talk about issues."

McCain says her 76-year-old father, John McCain, has already seen a highlight reel of her show and approves. "He did not love when I worked at MSNBC," she says. "He has really been a great champion of this show and believing that young people want more substance."

The Cycle on MSNBC got rid of that annoying S.E. Cupp and replaced her with Abby Huntsman. She filled in one day, and I thought why don't they have her instead of Cupp. They must have heard me :)

Great another network. I'm sure she will bring the same rating success to the new network that MSNBC has had.

I really dislike her and her show will fail because she is simply an annoying person who thinks people actually give a da@mn:disqus what she thinks, when I can promise we don't!
