Is CNN trying out New Day co-anchor Chris Cuomo in a primetime slot?
On Monday, Chris Cuomo hosted a live special hour at 9pm on Indiana’s controversial law, where he grilled Lieutenant Governor Sue Ellspermann. The special brought in ratings; it had 199,000 demo viewers, putting it in first place for CNN primetime (7pm-11pm).
Tonight, it seems CNN is trying to replicate some of Cuomo’s ratings success.
Chris Cuomo has been at 9pm in the past, co-hosting a special with fellow New Day anchor Alisyn Camerota on the American Sniper (Chris Kyle).
However, until this week, he’s never appeared in primetime alone.
Could this be a pilot of sorts for a new show for Cuomo, in CNN primetime?
