Smoking Gun TV

AUGUST 18--The Smoking Gun is coming to a television screen near you this week. Our first TV special--an irreverent beaut--debuts Wednesday (August 20) at 8 PM on Court TV. Click here for a clip and more info.

The program is hosted by Mo Rocca, senior political correspondent for Comedy Central's "The Daily Show with Jon Stewart." That's Mo in a still from the program at right--he's getting a makeover so as to replicate the fashionable look Nick Nolte showcased in his famous 2002 mug shot. And, yes, Mo shotgunned some GHB to get into character.

Smoking Gun TV features a collection of stories reflecting the site's rich pageant of mug shots, backstage riders, reality TV miscreants, and celebrity scandals. And, of course, examinations of hapless criminals like Coolerhead and the teenage steak thief.

So dial us up on August 20--we'll owe you one.
