Is this a Saturday and Sunday show or just Saturday?

The article doesn't specify. I believe the original press release from early February said it would start as a Saturday only show and slowly move into more time slots. If it airs on Sundays, 8am would probably be the only suitable spot without completely destroying the line up.

My main question at this point is, will Smerconish just air Saturday 9-9:30am or will it displace Your Money as well

This ridiculous and irresponsible (journalistically speaking) show will get a primetime trial run (let's hope it's nothing more) for the week of March 31st at 9pm ET. As many of you know, Piers Morgan Live's final show is Friday (Yay!) and Zucker will be testing out hosts.

Among them, Michael Smerconish who has no right on CNN let alone at 9pm ET when serious news should be presented, not political analysis and opinion.

Some of the smarter test runs will be Don Lemon, Bill Weir and Jake Tapper. I've read Weir has a big ego and will inevitably be the Chris Cuomo of primetime. (I loved him on Nightline, he's not cutting it on CNN thus far) I also read on Hollywood Reporter that Weir and Tapper are longtime ABC News rivals, which doesn't make a heck of a lot of sense considering Bill filled in on Jake's show.

Bottom line: Smerconish is bad news for CNN

I like Smerconish but primetime is definitely not his game

Despite my hatred for the show, by far the best use of Studio 71 other than New Day

New Day Weekend and Smerconish EP has left CNN to go to The Weather Channel to serve as SVP of live programming, per TVNewser.

Does Smerconish still air on CNN Domestic?

Also, doesn't Smerconish air on CNN's studio, while the radio program is based in Philly?

Yes.
He uses the CNNMoney set on Saturdays, but during the week when he appears as a commentator, he uses his home studio.

This show probably has the worst look on air. I don't usually watch it, but the revised intro looks awful and the flash set in Philadelphia that he's been using since almost July is very poor. The show used to have nice graphics and a lovely on-air presence for its short stint in Studio 71. Now it's a weird hour with a cheap on air look. I don't know why Smerconish has been in Philly, but if it's a permanent change CNN needs to invest in at least a decent camera for this pitiful flash set show. Just the intro alone causes me to want to change the channel for an hour.
