CNN Tonight: Hiatus?

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 […]

CNN Tonight: 9pm; eventually 10pm

So, let’s make our way through the mystery surrounding CNN Tonight.  A mix of this will be speculation and fact; as to not confuse anyone, I’ll be sure to make it evident when I’m speculating or when I’m discussing what is already confirmed. Let’s start with what we know: starting […]

Crossfire Back May 1st

From Politico‘s Dylan Byers: CNN’s “Crossfire,” which has been off the air for one month as of today, will be “back on the air soon,” the network’s top spokesperson said Wednesday. That assurance, from Communications SVP Allison Gollust, may bring an end to uncertainty among CNN staffers as to when […]

The Lead Next Week… Not the Lead?

It is more or less confirmed now that Jake Tapper will be hosting at 9pm next week, since the departure of Piers Morgan.  (Reminder: This week will be hosted by Michael Smerconish).  But… Is it possible the show will not be called The Lead at 9pm?  I mean, as I […]

Erin Burnett OutFront… At least, Out

As a result of the “new” temporary evening/late night schedule, Erin Burnett Outfront has noticeably lost its repeat.  (No complaints from me, mind; EBO needs to go, and so do repeats).  But it’s amusing.  If you think about it, Anderson is pulling insane hours on some nights.  Just this week, […]

Notice Who Didn’t Get A Trial?

Did you notice who CNN didn’t drop a trial-run show to?  That’s right… CNN’s co-host of New Day, Kate Bolduan.  If you think about that, it doesn’t make any sense.  Numerous reports say Chris wants Kate gone, and just as many reports say Jeff Zucker has been looking for places to put […]

So, Who’s Incompetent?

Somebody at CNN is incompetent; I think that’s an undeniable fact.  CNN has been running short-lived, temporary programs to “test the waters” – The 11th Hour w/ Don Lemon, In Case You Missed it w/ Brooke Baldwin… and now, The Don Lemon Show and Making the Case with Sunny Hostin […]

New Day’s “The Good Stuff” Ad

Lately, I have been a watcher of HLN’s Morning Express w/ Robin Meade as opposed to New Day, simply because of the awkwardness and animosity between the New Day hosts (namely Kate and Chris).  However, I watched New Day for probably the first six or seven months of its broadcast […]
