Hot on the heels of Keith Olbermann's firing from Current TV, former New York state Attorney General and ex-CNN host Elliot Spitzer premiered his new program "Viewpoint with Elliot Spitzer" on Friday night.

In his intro to the program, Spitzer outlined what he sees as his show's mission, a "nightly quest" to find "facts that inform."
