TORONTO, June 11, 2012 /CNW/ - Fiercely outspoken and unstoppable
comedian Kathy Griffin transcends the so-called "D-LIST" with the debut
of her new weekly talk show KATHY, premiering exclusively on E!, Friday, June 15 at 9 p.m. ET (visit eonline.ca for local listings). KATHY joins E!'s irreverent, fun Friday night lineup which includes new
episodes of FASHION POLICE at 10 p.m. ET. The one-hour weekly pop
culture talk show hosted by the two-time Emmy® Award-winner, The New York Times bestselling author and Grammy® nominee, showcases Griffin's unique take on celebrities, co-workers,
friends, politicians and even her own boxed wine swilling mother,
Maggie. Kathy's #1 goal? To deflate the egos of everyone who is anyone
and those who think they're someone.
