Erin Burnett’s New Gig Starts September

Burnett’s show was announced in the same memo in which the bad news was broken that Eliot Spitzer’s foray into television, In The Arena, will be put out to pasture, which could make things around the water cooler slightly awkward (apparently Spitzer hasn’t yet left the building, with network execs trying to find him “an alternative role”).

Today we are announcing a new evening line-up that showcases our journalism, and further differentiates and distinguishes CNN. Beginning August 8, we will broadcast AC360, our flagship news program, at 8p and 10p. Then in late September, we will add Erin Burnett’s new show at 7p and 11p. Piers Morgan will continue at 9p and midnight, while JKUSA and the Situation Room will both be broadcast one hour earlier, at 6p and 4p, respectively. This line-up emphasizes our focus on quality journalism and on hosts who are proven reporters, as well as on shows that successfully combine original reporting with news analysis, civil debate and a wide range of inclusive and differing opinions…We are in discussions with Eliot Spitzer about an alternative role. We thank him and the entire In the Arena team for creating a program that moved many political and economic issues into the national spotlight.

    To console himself, Spitzer has been locked up in his hotel room at the Sofitel for days insisting that the 32-year-old Guinean immigrant clean his room daily.

    It came down to Spitz vs. spits

    Let me get the roles straight, Anderson is the girl, Erin’s the dude, and Elliot is behind the camera with nothing but socks on? Sounds like fun, I want in!

    Burnett is boring, all she does is lob softball questions

    Unless she is giving fellatio to a 7 layer burrito while scissoring Casey Anthony, I am not interested.

    “alternative role”  I have dozens of good phone numbers, I could pimp girls for those TV execs nightly.

    So I guess Eliot Spitzer goes back to working at Goldman.

    boo all the naysayers….Erin is the kind of chick you take home to meet Mom.  And you know I’m right.  You bring home Melissa or Drury…and you gotta fight off your brother and your Dad.

  15. Cramer says:

    Maybe bring her home to mom, but pops would be pointing out that she’s got no tits

  16. Asss says:

    Who needs tits?


  17. The Pronger says:

    I have a dream of servicing Melissa Lee,  Erin and the camel all at the same time. Melissa Lee can do the reporting.

    I like to eat soft shell crabs and I like Erin Burnett.
