Last month, Eliot Spitzer's ratings on CNN were NOT doing so hot, and it was looking like he might lose his show if he didn't figure something out.
Unfortunately for Eliot, it appears that he wasn't able to bring in more viewers, and his show has officially been cancelled.
Starting Aug 8, instead of In the Arena with Eliot Spitzer, Anderson Cooper 360 will take over Spitzer's 8 p.m. time slot AND it will air again at its current 10 pm timeslot.
Here's what Anderson had to say about
Eliot's his new time slot:
"I’m looking forward to the new time slot and am excited to share AC360 with a new audience at 8pm, while still connecting with my regular viewers at 10pm."
And here's what CNN/U.S. executive vp Ken Jautz had to say about CNN's schedule changes:
"The new line-up showcases anchors who are experienced reporters in covering stories that span the globe. We created a nightly schedule that brings together the best of CNN’s journalism on a wide range of topics from politics and the economy to global and world events, as well the best newsmaker and celebrity interviews. This line-up ensures viewers access to the best of what CNN has to offer whenever they tune in at night."
Too bad things didn't work out for Eliot, but we're def excited to see the Silver Fox in his nifty new 8 p.m. time slot!
Will U miss Eliot Spitzer's show?
