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.

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.
I agree she is attractive until she opens her mouth or puts pen to Paper
I cannot stand to even look at him a second. Makes you wonder what is going on at this thing they call “CNN”
The Arena and a panel of “experts”. oh how exciting.. will they wear leather outfits and prance about.. Oh wait, this is CNN, of course.. :-)
saw this coming a mile away. She’s not very smart, arrogant and lack any charisma. Thats why she hate Palin so much. Palin have everything she lack
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.
But...but...but Charlie is a Russian resistance fighter, a veteran of 'Nam', a Wall Street financier, a F-18 pilot, a major league pitcher, a jingle writing artist (an acknowledgement of those that still receive their culture fix from the American Idol/Survivor/Hollywood/CNN tidbits of nourishment.
Client #9 is now Numero Uno. He is UNWATCHABLE!!
CNN is still around? Who knew?
As for Spitzer-Parker, I saw some promos for their show and figured it was garbage. I was right and Parker’s gone, but CNN will eventually fire Client No. 9 also. This guy is about as entertaining and informative as one of Rahm Emanuel’s dead fish.
E.D. HILL??????? Ha she NO standards left??
No wonder he has to pay for it.
