This is something I tweeted about yesterday evening (in my frustration) and today, decided to blog about. As was pointed out in the Twitter conversation (which I linked at the bottom of this post), yes, I’m aware Anderson signed a contract keeping him through 2016. However, lately, he just hasn’t […]
There aren’t very many talking heads at CNN I’m terribly fond of. However, a rather recent hire by CNN was Mel Robbins, who was hired as a CNN commentator and a legal analyst. At first, I wasn’t sure if I liked her – she was rather blunt and pretty much […]
With Bill Weir being done with CNN Tonight (for the time being, anyway [which in my opinion means permanently]) to tape some series for CNN, I presume Don Lemon will soon be named the host of CNN Tonight. He may just anchor the show as the de-facto host, but I […]
Has CNN finally realized hiring Bill Weir to be an anchor was a bad idea? It certainly looks like it! Huge props to Richard Wojcicki for asking (and getting a response from) Bill Weir. Bye bye, Weir… And travel safe!
CNN isn’t very transparent, and they certainly aren’t very reliable. In fact, they’re not very quick to update things, either. Or… are they? At CNN’s Upfront, the new primetime lineup was revealed: EBO at 7pm, AC360 at 8pm, taped shows at 9pm, and CNN Tonight at 10pm. Everything I read […]
The show that has become known as The Special Report with Don Lemon (which airs at 10pm, usually Monday-Thursday) is exactly the format that, in my opinion, Jeff Zucker was going for when he had AC360 Later on the air. It started out as an hour of rolling coverage (non-coverage) […]
CNN Tonight isn’t quite on a hiatus, per se. You see, while it was assumed by many that CNN Tonight would be a permanent fixture at 9pm (until its eventual move to 10pm, where it will be), we quickly learned this week that was not the case. This week, the […]
If you remember, when Piers Morgan signed off, for four weeks, there would be four trial shows at 9pm. First was Smerconish’s go at it; next was Tapper’s turn; the third week was Weir’s; and the fourth week should have been Lemon’s. But we are now in the fourth week, […]
