It was a tumultuous week in America that didn't turn out quite the way the media led us to expect. So why not celebrate the dawn of a new era with a new source of information and entertainment? In three weeks' time Mark launches his nightly television extravaganza called, just to avoid any confusion, The Mark Steyn Show. Read more about it below.
Meanwhile, in case you missed it, here's how the last seven days looked to Steyn:
The week began with the senior most political contribution to the American songbook - a vice-presidential smash that's good advice when the count comes up short.
~On Monday Mark considered last-minute election-eve developments, from James Comey's latest absolution of Hillary to J Edgar with a Hoover.
~For Election Day Steyn provided a rolling update, from the first vote counts in northern New Hampshire to the moment when Donald Trump won Pennsylvania and turned himself into the 45th President of the United States. It was our most-read piece of the week: Start at the bottom and scroll up.
~On the Wednesday morning after the Tuesday night before, Mark pondered the glass ceiling that didn't get shattered, and all the ones that did.
~On Thursday Steyn shared his thoughts on the US election with Larry Williams' listeners on New Zealand's Newstalk ZB. You can hear the full interview here. He also turned up with Evan Solomon on Canada's CFRA to argue that in Trump the left's one-demonization-fits-all finally ran up against its limits: "When everyone's Hitler, nobody's Hitler."
~Our Saturday movie date continued the Veterans Day theme with We Were Soldiers. Also for the weekend Steyn held his Clinton Dynasty massive-storewide-clearances everything-must-go final closing sale.
As mentioned above, on December 5th Mark is launching The Mark Steyn Show. You can watch it from almost anywhere on the planet at whatever hour of the day suits you best, and on whatever delivery system you prefer, whether big-screen television, compact telephone, or anything in between - and entirely commercial-free, every night of the week. Mark and his guests will be addressing all the big-picture geopolitics he deals with in his books, but he'll also be doing TV versions of his most popular website features, including Mark at the Movies, Steyn's Song of the Week, Ave atque vale and Mark's Mailbox. If you like civilizational collapse and live music on the same bill, this is the show for you.
Make a date to join Mark each night, starting in three weeks' time. You can find out more about The Mark Steyn Show here - and get other great CRTV shows from the likes of Michelle Malkin, Mark Levin and Steven Crowder as part of the same low-rate introductory package.
A new week at SteynOnline begins tonight with our Song of the Week.
