CNN Cancels ‘In the Arena’ With Eliot Spitzer
NY TImes ^ | 7/6/11 | BRIAN STELTER

Posted on 07/06/2011 11:53:46 AM PDT by Keith in Iowa

1:42 p.m. | Updated CNN on Wednesday cancelled Eliot Spitzer’s 8 p.m. political talk show, “In The Arena,” after only nine months, and said it would shift Anderson Cooper’s 10 p.m. nightly newscast into the time slot.

The cable news channel also said that Erin Burnett, a new hire from CNBC, would take over the 7 p.m. time slot on weekdays, replacing John King, who will move to 6 p.m. “The Situation Room with Wolf Blitzer,” which currently runs from 5 to 7 p.m., will move to 4 to 6 p.m.

...

The changes at CNN will begin to take effect on Aug. 8, when Mr. Cooper’s show moves to 8. Then, on Sept. 19, Mr. Blitzer’s newscast will move to 4 and Mr. King’s will move to 6. Sometime in late September, Ms. Burnett’s still-untitled news show will be introduced at 7 p.m., with a rebroadcast at 11 p.m.

Why was it cancelled? Was “In the Arena” an X-rated show?

He'll be replaced with The Casey Anthony Show. After all, she gave them their best ratings since OJ.

Book it!

Well I’ll be! Does this mean no one cared to hear what the philandering (on the public’s dime) demrat Spitzer had to say. I’m shocked, I tell you! Shocked!

I'm not going to buy a book and enrich Casey Anthony, and, for the same reason, I refuse to watch or listen to Eliot Spitzer.

WHOOPS! Forgot it was CNN, but don’t blame me for checking in for a few minutes a week. Erin may turn out to disappoint if the show continues to be primarily political,
but she always impressed me as smart, like most of the CNBC girls.

Too bad E.D. Hill had to go down with the sinking ship. But Fox News did like Fist jab jokes.

Not to worry about Hill. E.D. is already filling in right now for Brooke Baldwin.

I think it was that network that was catering non-stop to the morons obsessed with the Kasey Anthony drama down in Florida. Wait just a second, that was all of the networks. But surprised CNN didn't devote a full time show to it. Morons in this country care more about white trash drama than the various wars we're in, what Obama is doing, who is going to run for President, etc. Very sad.
