To be launched early 2013 on CNN and CNNI; Bourdain will also offer food commentary across CNN platforms (which presumably will include a weekly column on the Eatocracy blog?)

I'm glad Ginnyfan's happy - but so much for the news. Guess Giada de Laurentiis and David Bromstadt can't be far behind.

I wonder what time slot Bourdain will get on CNN Domestic. The press release notes it will air in primetime, so it's either CNN Presents, PMT or Don Lemon that will get the boot.

i.e. less and less hard news on weekends. Sad
it will mark a further step in broadening and distinguishing CNN’s weekend programming from its traditional weekday news coverage
I really hope this doesn't replace newscasts on either CNNI or CNN/US

Houston, I know you were making a joke about "CNN Anchor Star" but I wouldn't put anything past the current crop of executives at Turner to think they could get a ratings bump for this idea. Maybe it's not such a bad idea. Think about it... CNN finds 12 potential anchors and they spend a whole year running them through the gaunlet - interviews, anchor tests, viewer reaction etc... Given CNN's track record for hiring new talent clearly the reality show test would be more vetting than CNN has ever conducted on their recent hires!!! Furthermore, can we really trust CNN execs judgement on who to put on the air? At least in a reality show, we would all have a say.
I am kidding. Sort of. These guys have been positively dreadful at developing anchor talent.

Did you see this this week? From Tangiers and a lot of it involved marijuana, hashish and gif themes. I don't think I've seen the press devote time to the subject --- ever when the topic was the enjoyment of and not the dangers of. What a hoot!
