    As a Canadian, I knew this show’s failure would be inevitable. But even I didn’t expect it to bomb quite that quickly.

  • AppleStinx

    CNN should have advertised it on Fox News.

  • Cheryl Lynn

    Probably a JALS. (Just Another Liberal Show)

  • Dan

    With Jeff Zucker at the helm, what do you expect. The ship is sinking really fast.

  • SF

    The title guaranteed its disaster. No one is going to watch a program with a title they can’t pronounce.

  • Dreamer

    I agree SF, I do not even know how to say it.
    Sounds like Dr Seuss.

    I think Ratboy took my advice and bribed them by faxing them some of his smoked ribs :-)

    Re-Hi boys and girls

    NOW BEHAVE!!!!

  • Coffee Steve

    Scandals will take a back seat to the riots in Turkey for awhile, and the news ratings will go way up as well

    @Coffee Steve

    In that case, it looks like the smoked ribs weren’t that great. :wink:

    CNN posts

    Cover-up alleged at State Department
    Memo says workers may have hired prostitutes

    Maybe it a limited time offer or a trial basis thing Apple :-) I just hope we all learn from it, I am glad we may get another chance

    Sara Bibel probably didn’t get the memo of the shutdown.
    I think it’s best to not post political commentary for the time being.

  • Coffee Steve

    Hurry and lock the door Ratboy has went from selling property to Life Insurance and man he is pushy

  • Coffee Steve


    I still been checking the numbers for the cable news section, and I tell you what if MSNBC doesn’t improve at least some during the trial that’s about to happen, you may finally see a format change there

  • Hillbilly

    Is Stroumboulopoulous related to George Stephanopoulos? :lol:

    Hannity’s special on Sunday night lost to (I’m guessing a jailhouse show)on MSNBC. :???:

  • Hillbilly

    Before my arch rival AppleStinx corrects my post above. FNC lost the prime time demo Sunday. Don’t know if Hannity’s special won it’s time slot.

    Change names to Stroumboli and Stephani and I guarantee they’ll have a bigger audience. :grin:
