After months of turbulence at CNNs Parker Spitzer, the network will drop co-host Kathleen Parker from the show, according to sources and a memo released to CNN staff. Eliot Spitzer will continue with the show.
According to CNN chief Ken Jautz, the new show will be solo-anchored by Spitzer and an ensemble format of contributors and be called In the Arena. The new show debuts Monday. Heres the memo:
I want to share with you some news today regarding our 8pm show. Kathleen Parker has decided to leave the program to focus on her writing, and we have decided to take the show in a new direction. We will be adopting an ensemble format with several newsmakers, guests and contributors joining Eliot Spitzer each night. The new program will be called, In the Arena, beginning Monday. E.D. Hill and Will Cain will join the program as well others within and outside the CNN family.

Her 5 fans(Yes I am being gracious) are going to be devastated. Perhaps a candlelight vigil in the works
So,,,, Elliot “Lil Loogie” Spitzer got his way after all,,,,,,,
She’s a fake Republican, made to give the impression of balance on that show. She is kinda purty, though.
On what issue was she actually conservative?
When they get rid of the rest of the racist, Islamaphobe, Anti America, Anti Marriage, Obama slobbering, partisan, elitists...I may watch. But I doubt it. Trust has to be earned, and they lost mine, long ago.
They could just put a cardboard cutout of her on the seat next to that disgusting motor mouth Spitzer and no one would have been the wiser.
CNN is keeping Spitzer? Well, no wonder ratings are swirling the bowl.
Hey Kathleen, do you get a sense it’s a man’s world? Too bad, maybe you shoulda kept your anti palin, Palin deranged mouth shut.
wonder who the next pretend “conservative” will be....
I saw a post here where a FReeper predicted this months ago. FReepers are always ahead of the curve.
No more “Spitz and ditz”
I watched once for a few minutes, he didn’t give her much of an opportunity to talk.
I'll alert the media.
Spitzer dominated that show. She welcomed guests and then said good bye. Bless her heart she couldnt put together an argument to save her life.
Damn! Now CNN viewers will never hear a well-explained conservative perspective.
He does that to all women, apparently...............
Wassamatter? She wouldn’t take on Eliot as another “Client 9?”
It’s because she felt like such a whore, selling out her integrity sitting across from an effing, whore-hopping snake, and having to discuss supposedly legit topics without going “Eeeeewwwwwwww!!!” every time .... bwaaaahaaaahahahahahahaha
My prediction: It won’t help ratings
They are going to hold on to Spitzer like he’s the Rock of Gibraltar. CNN will go completely down the tubes before Eliot Spitzer even hears of a problem. He’s exactly what they want, what they’re looking for, and what their tiny audience aspires to be. He’s absolutely safe. He might as well be a Supreme Court justice. He’s got a job for life with CNN. It doesn’t matter if their US audience dwindles to 1,500 people in prime time. Spitzer will still be there.
But I would say "Not Guilty"
If CNN wanted to boost their ratings against the Factor they could put Laura Ingraham on. But why would they want to do that.
Replace her with Charlie Sheen....anyone wanna name that new show???
E.D. Hill has fallen far.
Finally the RINO gets the boot!
Kind of surprised it took this long. Who won the pool?
An erect Spitzer has no conscience.
They should run it with Eliot Spitzer and five of his old girlfriends. They wouldn’t have to talk much, just sit there and look pretty. And maybe ask the Madam to moderate.
Have to ask....Will Ashley Dupré be one of the “ensemble format” of contributors?
Paging Charlie Sheen....
Charlie Sheen, White Courtesy Telephone, Please!
Yes, E. D. Hill must be desperate to get out of the house, away from her six kids, to take this gig with Spitzer as the token “conservative.” Sorry to hear an old Texas girl has fallen so low.
Alex Jones was smart to put him on yesterday, big ratings bounce (I’m sure the dinosaur broadcasters took note Alex ate their lunch).
She could not remain in the presence of my brilliant repartee and stunning physique.
They would never put Sheen in that job, not because he wouldn't be WILDLY entertaining (because he would), and not because he wouldn't get tremendous ratings (again, because he would). They would never put Sheen in that job because the liberal mafia wouldn't dare put an unfiltered spokesman of orthodox liberalism in front of a national audience.
Sheen is the POSTER CHILD of run-amok liberalism - all the drugs, all the abortion, all the unprotected and out of wedlock sex that can be had, IS had by Charlie Sheen. He is the product of, the very embodiment of liberalism.
CNN can't let the world see that every night. No way.
Spitzer is everything Sheen is, but he cleans up better and has an Ivy League education and can temper his public comments, so he's acceptable.
That solves half their problem in that time slot. They don’t have the guts to fire Sptizer, but at least he doesn’t pretend to be “conservative”. I can’t stand to look at that sleazy snake, and when he dares to start moralizing, I get sick.
Just call the new show ‘Client 9” and be done with it.
"Turbulence" suggests some ups as well as the downs. Parker's program has been all downhill. Better lead-in would be "After months of plunging ratings and insipid programs . . ."
In The Arena...wearing socks.
Will E.D. be allowed to fist bump Elliot?
Two and a half hookers?
The new show is simply called “Spit”.
Good riddance. She’s worse than Spitzer. At least I know the leftist tripe from Spitzer is from an open leftist, not supposed to be passing for “conservative”
E.D. Hill even going on the show is disgusting, to fist bump yuck. B!tch slap maybe but fist bump no way.
