Randy Jackson is shopping a talking show around because "he wants to talk about things that will be hip next," a "knowledgeable source" told THR. "He thinks he has his finger on the pulse." Jackson has been on television twice a week for eighteen weeks for the last nine years, and in that time he has demonstrated a fanatical commitment to catchphrases and an almost surreal ability to avoid specifics. "In it to win it," he said, over and over and over. What will he talk about when there's no one to call "pitchy"? [THR]
