The Governator Is a Fan of FNC’s Legends & Lies

Arnold Schwarzenegger is featured in Rolling Stone, where he discusses a wide variety of topics in an in-depth interview. The former governor was explaining why he’s “pissed off about the idea of death” when the topic somehow turned into what he watches on television.

Immortality — the way legacies can outlive us — has long obsessed him. One of Schwarzenegger’s favorite TV series these days is Legends & Lies, on Fox News, which examines the myths around historic figures. “I watched an episode on Jesse James last night,” he says.

Legends & Lies: The Real West is a docu-style, 10-week series executive produced by Bill O’Reilly. Last Sunday’s episode on stagecoach bandit Black Bart averaged 224K viewers in the key A25-54 demo. If you’re wondering, Schwarzenegger is 67 years old… so he was not among the 224K.
