The Huckabee Show, a chat program hosted by former presidential candidate Mike Huckabee, is going to get tested out on certain Fox syndicates across the country for six weeks starting at the end of the month. The Times reports the show will be similar to his weekend Huckabee program on Fox News, which has been well-received. The audition will be akin to the one Wendy Williams successfully attempted last year (her show was quickly picked up) and the one Craig Kilborn is working on now. Presumably, Fox brass are keeping in mind that as of last week, he still hadn't "closed the door" on running for president in 2012.
