And, is the queen finally being punished for refusing her masters?
Now, don’t get me wrong. Erin is an alright anchor. Is she pre-primetime material, a good lead-in for Anderson? Not at all. She either should do Erin Burnett Outfront live at 11pm, or simply not at all. 7pm needs to go to someone else.
But anyway: she has lost her repeat. Instead, CNN is airing either a live AC360, or the Special Report with Don Lemon. Let that sink in: a weekend nighttime anchor is replacing the supposed pre-primetime anchor’s repeat. (Yes, Don is being tested at 10-10:30 on Mondays… But Lord, he’s been on almost nonstop for three weeks, weekdays and weekends).
Could Erin be on the way out? Surely, she can’t be too happy with her present situation. Heck, even Piers Morgan (that’s right – the man who is in his last week at CNN hosting his 9pm show) has a scheduled repeat. But Erin? Nope… No repeat for her.
Erin Burnett, out.
