At This Hour

At This Hour with John Berman and Michaela Pereira is a pretty good show.  Make no mistake, though… It isn’t the “West Coast morning show” it was billed to be.  But that is an issue that can be very easily remedied, in my opinion. First of all, it is little […]

Legal View… or Newsroom?

Some of CNN’s shows have a real identity crisis going on.  Unfortunately, Legal View is one of those shows.  For example, any time Ashleigh is gone, a nobody-anchor fills in for her.  (Not a “nobody” as in an anchor know one knows; a nobody as in no anchor with legal […]

The New Day / Morning Express Dilemma

Any one who has seen New Day and Morning Express knows there’s a problem.  The hosts of New Day are repulsed by each other.  Chris Cuomo quite visibly is contemptuous of Kate Bolduan, and Kate has an attitude with Chris.  Meanwhile, there’s Michaela Pereira, put in a very uncomfortable position when […]

Don Lemon is a Problem

New Day Weekend

Eventually, I’ll publish a Weekend schedule for CNN…  But before that point, I’d like to tackle a big issue on New Day’s weekend editions: CNN made a big deal about having two hosts and a news anchor.  From the weekend New Day’s inception, however, that’s simply not been the case.  […]
