  1. Great programming ideas! Agree with everything EXCEPT Wolf Blitzer, he is so boring and it is time for him to retire.

    • Thanks!

      While I’m not a big Wolf Blitzer fan and do certainly agree he should retire, I don’t see it happening any time soon. He’s a big CNN face, and I had to keep my fantasy schedule a bit realistic, so I had to at least give him an hour. After all, presently he has a 1-hour show (Wolf) and an hour and a half show (Sit Room, though on Fridays it is two hours long).

  2. I would have Michaela Pereira do her show from Los Angeles.
    Remake AC360 @ 10P into a remix of Newsnight with Arron Brown.
    Return Kate Bolduan to The Situation Room w/Wolf Blitzer
    Find room in the 7P documentary/taped block for Soledad O’Brien, Kira Phillips, and Nancy Grace reports. I would also dig up Lynne Russell< Bernard Shaw, Carolyn O'Neil, and other retired CNNers for occasional shows with no limits.
    Smerconish live @ 6P on weekends is a non-starter.
