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.
