Amazon to Launch Bill Maher-Hosted Online TV Show
Random Culture points us to the Amazon Fishbowl, an online show launching in June and hosted by Bill Mahr which will feature live musical performances, interviews with authors, directors and actors and a UPS-sponsored "special delivery" to an Amazon customer. According to the site, the show will be streamed beginning at 8PM on June 1 so that it "broadcasts" as does TV. Random Culture notes, and we agree, it might be nice if the show was available to download either as file or as podcast allowing the viewer to watch it on their own time rather than Amazon's time.
In the premier episode, Mahr interviews Stephen King, Paul Rieser makes a UPS delivery and Mahr speaks with screenwriter Armistead Maupin. It could be a nice tie-in for UPS if they hook up with the right celebu-deliverers.
