Al Sharpton will host Spike TV show.
Al Sharpton will soon be using his presidential campaign experience to do more than just host Saturday Night Live. He’ll soon be applying his skills and expertise in a new position as he hosts a new Spike TV reality show. He’ll host I Hate My Job, on which “eight male contestants … will quit their jobs and work with two ‘life counselors,’ Sharpton and California psychologist Stephanie Raye, who will give them advice and weekly assignments. A panel will decide which contestants will continue each week,” the AP reports. Why’s he doing this? “I like the concept of trying to have people discover their purpose in life, and not have the world define them or settle for less than who they want to be just to pay their bills,” Sharpton says. “A lot of politicians don’t do it because they can’t do it. I can do it.”
