From CNN, Newt Gingrich, S.E. Cupp, Stephanie Cutter, Van Jones to Host Debate Program. The original  Crossfire lasted from 1982-2005. What is the over-under on the rehashed version?

CNN today announced that Crossfire, previously the longest running political debate program on television, will return to the network this fall. Hosting from the right will be Newt Gingrich and S.E. Cupp, with Stephanie Cutter and Van Jones hosting from the left.

“Few programs in the history of CNN have had the kind of impact on political discourse that Crossfire did – it was a terrific program then, and we believe the time is right to bring it back and do it again,” said Jeff Zucker, President of CNN Worldwide. “We look forward to the opportunity to host passionate conversation from all sides of the political spectrum.  Crossfire will be the forum where America holds its great debates.”
