I know we are judging Jautz mostly by what he did with HLN, but again, he's been in so many different non-tabloid TV news projects that it doesn't have to mean (and IMHO it probably won't) CNN will be "HLN-ized".
Since he can't do much about 8 and 9pm at the moment, I believe his first moves will have something to do with American Morning, which has lost a lot of audience and episodes like the most recent one with John Roberts and Kiran Chetry don't help the show much.
The next move will have to be fixing or cancelling John King USA, because there's no way for Parker Spitzer to succeed if nobody watches the 7 pm show. And if Parker Spitzer has a ratings problem, Piers Morgan and AC are only the next links in chain.
