Why ICYMI Should Return Permanently

In Case You Missed It, which aired at 11:30-midnight for a few weeks at the end of last year during Erin Burnett’s maternity leave, was hosted by Brooke Baldwin.  The show and the premise was spectacular.  Other than a minor hiccup (where Brooke and Jake Tapper rehearsed a segment, and […]

CNN Compared to CNNI

I noticed a huge difference today when I was watching CNN International’s more… cautious coverage, compared to CNN’s, of the missing Boeing 777.  Unfortunately, I don’t actually have CNNI – my grandmother does, so when I’m at her house, I often switch and watch CNNI, just to see different hosts […]

Crossfire Preempted

Crossfire was preempted today for continued rolling coverage of the Malaysian flight with Wolf Blitzer.  Crossfire has been preempted quite a few times since its revival – in fact, it was preempted at least once this week; I don’t recall the day off the top of my head, but it […]

HLN & CNN Building Collapse Coverage

I’m not sure when CNN or HLN started covering the building collapse – I got home from class at 11, turned my TV on, and then started watching their coverage.  Either way, I saw tweets indicating Chris Cuomo was anchoring breaking coverage before that (so presumably, he took over from […]

Monday Late Primetime

I think The Don Lemon show went well.  It was similar to a standard Newsroom show, but it had something of a twist – it was mainly a “panel” of experts and reporters, talking and arguing with Don Lemon.  I think it can be successful in a more permanent manner.  […]

One Show, Two Subs

I like speculating.  (Thus this blog).  Lately, when a CNN anchor has a two-hour show, as most of them do, two people have been filling in – one per hour.  Could CNN be moving away from the one anchor having two hours, and intend to split the hours up, moving […]
