(Newser) – Sean Hannity’s coming back, and just because Alan Colmes isn’t around anymore doesn’t mean he can’t find a token liberal. In his new format, Hannity will have a panel of rotating members, reports Broadcasting & Cable. On Monday, Rep. Michele Bachmann will sit on the right, and the Rev. Al Sharpton on the left. Also inexplicably part of the show: Meat Loaf.
