CNN's Trying To Diversify Their Programming

Here's the sitch:

CNN has got this 7PM slot wide-open for new programming, so the network has been scrambling to decided what to do with it. According to insiders at CNN, the agreement amongst the suits is to flll the void with a program that would win back the African-American and Hispanic viewers (because somewhere along the line, they lost them!)

With that in mind, the suits are attempting to woo wither Chris Rock or Aisha Tyler to join the team. Actually, the network already shot a pilot with Soledad O'Brien last month in hopes that they could fill the slot with that. However, we hear CNN Worldwide president Jim Walton watched the show and promptly deemed it "unwatchable."

Damn! We wonder why!

We appreciate the willingness to add some diversity to the line-up, but don't underestimate the power of just solid, responsible journalism. People, all people, will tune in to your new show if they find it showcases important and relevant stories in an engaging way.

    I prefer Fox News over PMSNBC and CNN.



  2. 2

    No way, Fox all the way !

    CNN is definitely the network for people who define news as straight facts and context rather than agenda-driven, unsubstantiated opinions like you get at Fox. But CNN's first priority should be replacing Piers Morgan. THAT's unwatchable. The guy's a dick and his show is the worst ever to appear on that network. He's the stinky dogpile in an otherwise good network.

    Didn't they try this already with DL Hugley? Worked out real well for them & him. How about getting someone who is informed & NON PARTISAN!!!! I am tired of listening to both sides yell from their respective far left/right benches. Rock & Tyler both commited leftists as was Hugley. Try something different CNN(Middle).

    I new something was going wrong when Chris Brown dyed his hair and CNN made such a big deal of it knowing there was bigger news to be told. They also fired all the good people that the people love to watch. So now everyone is turning to Fox News or NSMBC. When CNN fired Lou Dobes the station went to the dogs.
