Fox pundit Andrew Napolitano gets a TV show, at last

The libertarian Fox News pundit Andrew Napolitano, the former New Jersey Superior Court judge who's toiled away with his online-only "Freedom Watch" for more than a year, has snagged a weekend slot for the show on Fox Business -- not the most desirable TV real estate on the planet, but space he'll share with the likes of John Stossel and Dave Ramsey.

Ten months ago, the Daily Beast's Michelle Goldberg wondered whether Napolitano's show -- which promotes more radical, challenging ideas and guests than even Glenn Beck -- was "too hot" for Fox News proper. Apparently not. Napolitano's new edition of "Freedom Watch" will be a bigger production than his web show; he snagged Austin Peterson, a new media guru who cut his teeth at the Libertarian Party, as his writer and producer.

For a taste of what to expect, here's Napolitano on the Alex Jones Show.
