    Anderson Cooper’s 10pm show to be cancelled – to make way for a big new hire on primetime at CNN

    Anderson Cooper’s 10pm show is set to be slashed by CNN chief Jeff Zucker to make room for a big new hire, network sources have revealed.


    Kudos GE ( I choke as I say it) Everyone should watch this.

    This was on Rock Center with Brian Williams a night or so ago….. (just get past the commercial and the interview starts.)

    And good old General Electric (G.E.) comes through again with breaking technology


  • Ratboy

    Remember everybody!!!! BIG0000 says we should THANK Obama for the gas prices!!! All together now………………..GEEEEEEEE THANKS!!!! :twisted:

    With pump prices at their highest level on record for this time of year, the stage is set for an even greater climb in gasoline prices and expenditures than in 2012. Retail gasoline prices have surged 17 cents in a week to top $3.50 a gallon on average, posting the highest prices on record for the beginning of February

    Anderson Cooper’s 10pm show to be cancelled –

    With all the changes at CNN, MSNBC will have to take a long hard look at their line up because if it works at CNN they wont be taking viewers from FOX the will steal them from MSNBC

  • Cathy

    OK, I did this really quick but here is what it’s averaged for the last three weeks. Mon – Thurs 25-54 ratings drop on Fridays for each network.

    Fox news has 40% less viewers on friday
    CNN 25%
    MSNBC 14%
    CNBC 9%

    Clearly Fox news losses a lot of their views on Friday night and the weekend. What should Fox news do?

  • Ratboy

    @ Clearly Fox news losses a lot of their views on Friday night and the weekend. What should Fox news do?

    go out and meet their viewers for a Friday night beer! :lol: I really dont think it is a big concern for them. They do not look for weekend numbers by the shows and reruns they ut up IMO

  • Cathy

    Rat, I’m sure really soon USA is going to tell us where we can find that 2.69 a gallon gas. You know you and me just live in the wrong place.

    We got the light fluffy airy snow today. Can’t even made a snowball with it. So, no snowmen for us. At least it’s light to shovel.

    What kind of snow did you get Rat?

  • Cathy

    Rat of course I was joking, I don’t think they care either.

  • Ratboy

    @ Cathy
    What kind of snow did you get Rat?

    we got about 4 of fluffy stuff but it warmed into the 20’s so it got a little packable. We are done now until tomorrow afternoon when we are supposed to get a couple more.

  • ninja

    If not watching Lou Dobbs, might want to tune in.

  • usa8888

    For all the undereducated righti wingers: gasoline prices in the US have NOTHING to do with the amount of American oil produced. That’s a function of world oil prices (which this week have been influenced by the Saudis cutting production to maintain a target profit for themselves), refineries shutting down or cutting production to influence prices, and Wall Street gambling–the most weight being put on the first variable. Presidents have nothing to do with gas prices but Obama has increased the miles per gallon which helps some.

  • Cathy

    USA8888, just how did Obama increase the miles per gallon?

  • Ratboy

    But but but ………zero zero zero zero said we should thank the president for low vas prices but now says if they are high then the pres has nothing to do with it????????????????????????
    Im glad THAT’S cleared up! :shock:

  • usa8888

    by doing the right thing for the auto industry–being the catalyst for the auto industry raising mpg for all vehicles….over the objections of the GOP…

  • usa8888

    Rat–I like to pull your leg about gas prices. It was so funny listening to Lian Ryan and Robme saying the Pres was responsible for gas prices…so I wondered if they would adulate the Pres if gas prices dropped, for whatever reason…

  • Sicilian Papa



    Inflation my friend, we are producing more through fracking and shale. All things the left is against. Demand is low but prices are going to soar in the spring.

    Print more money Barrack! As the woman said while waiting for free money, “We here to get some Obama money.”

  • Cathy

    Hey Rat, did you hear, the auto industry hasn’t been working on improving mpg for the last 37 years. Obama was the catalyst of it.

    I guess this piece of information is false:
    The Corporate Average Fuel Economy (CAFE) are regulations in the United States, first enacted by the U.S. Congress in 1975,[1] and intended to improve the average fuel economy of cars and light trucks (trucks, vans and sport utility vehicles) sold in the U.S. in the wake of the 1973 Arab Oil Embargo.

    Or did Barry come to Washington, DC at 14 and help Congress write this?

  • usa8888

    Sic Papa–you are completely WRONG about inflation and know nothing about economics. It’s a good thing you have nothig to do with our economy. If we followed your suggestions, we would be in Great Depression #2…

  • Ratboy

    @ Cathy
    What else can be said…………..YOU CAN’T FIX STUPID!!!!!!!

  • 1nancy2

    Well, what did you expect when S. Papa can’t get his syntax and grammar via standard English language guidelines? Example: SP=”Democrat” Party…Correction..”Democratic Party. Cathy=Forget About It.

  • usa8888

    Cathy–the auto industry has been slowed tremendously by the GOP lately because they don’t want better standards. If you analyzed your MBA cases like you analyze on this site, there is NO way you got an MBA on your own….
