CNN Cancels Eliot Spitzer Show, “In The Arena”


CNN gives Eliot Spitzer the axe as they cancel his show, “In The Arena.” Honestly, I am not sure how the show has lasted as long as it did. Maybe the show would have done better if CNN had called the show, CLIENT #9 AT 8.

CNN on Wednesday canceled Eliot Spitzer’s 8 p.m. political talk show, “In the Arena,” after only nine months amid a broader shake-up that shifts Anderson Cooper’s 10 p.m. nightly newscast into Mr. Spitzer’s time slot.

Mr. Spitzer will sign off on Wednesday night, a CNN spokeswoman said. His show will remain in the time slot until August 5.

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.

As Weasel Zippers stated, maybe he will be replaced with Anthony Weiner. Seems like the logical choice.

      CNN the perverted Cable New. I was surprised they did not offer Wiener a job as co host.

      [...] There might be only one thing worse than being fired. How about bring replaced by Eliot Spitzer? Yes, the same disgraced former NY Governor Eliot Spitzer, Client # 9 who was an absolute ratings catastrophe at CNN. [...]
