Instead of breaking down each one as I did on the Saturday schedule, I’ll just comment on the ones that differ from Saturdays. (And point out the shows I axed.)
Simply put, Fareed Zakaria GPS had to go. I hated that show. If CNN wants to keep it on CNN International, that’s fine by me… Just off of CNN/US.
News Desk w/ Victor Blackwell will be straight news.
Congress w/ Lisa Desjardins has some potential. It really doesn’t have to be live. (But I like live TV). Lisa very rarely gets any CNN time, so this could be quite the leap… But hey. She’s a Capitol Hill correspondent (which is an odd title, since Dana Bash is Chief Congressional Correspondent – so why isn’t Desjardins a Congressional Correspondent?). Why not showcase her and give her a thirty minute, Sunday show, where she can go over Congressional issues? Highlight the bills they’re debating, or something of that effect. It can be pre-taped and preempted if news occurs.
The rest is the same as Saturday’s schedule I posted.
