Hey all,

I came home today and noticed that CNN is not using the traditional Newsroom until 1600, and The Situation Room isn't on from 1600 - 1900. I am assuming this is just a temporary schedule for Thanksgiving, but still, wouldn't it be wise to have a little bit of programming? What will they do for NITN?If they go to CNNi, i'll be one happy camper ;D

Not only that, this trend continues until 0600 on Friday xS

Before I say anything else, please could I ask mistermartin75/Site Admin to sort out my account - in my very great stupidity, I decided to change the theme on my account back to the old one, and now I can't post (as mistermartin75 said in the announcements thread, I get a 'form error'). And it won't let me change back to the old one. Oops. :oops: :oops: :oops: Sorry!

Anyway, getting back to CNN. It looks like you've got a whole day of Special Investigations Unit (CNN SUI) David, instead of CNNI :( . What fun... not. :D Here's today's schedule(you'd better look soon - it'll have gone by tomorow!)

An interesting article from ICN:

Bloody Repeats�
Last week repeats of MSNBC�s Countdown and The Rachel Maddow show beat AC360. Sure, it was just one week but it was the first time that Maddow�s repeat beat 360 in the Demo. Note: Thursday CNN aired the Amanpour Special but Anderson Cooper was in all week and did a live show on Thursday at 11pm.


So please, CNN, why don't you just run simulcasts of CNN International and be the only news channel in the United States to have live breaking news every night and 24 hours a day....you have nothing to lose.

Let me repeat: you have nothing to lose.

Here's the deal, I wouldn't even expect all night simulcasts. Even an hour or two would be a great start. As you say, there's nothing really to lose. Unless they are bringing in a load of advertising dollars from the AC repeats, but I find that hard to believe. Who knows, a simple, worthwhile decision like this may just pay off for them!

I just don't understand why they do it. I guess they just think that it's all "overnight hours" and that nobody's watching at that hour, but it's important in the case of breaking news, and they're also not "overnight hours" for us on the West Coast. CNN goes into taped programming at 9pm my time, 8pm on the coast, and 5pm in Honolulu. That's not a 24 hour news channel. Just simulcasting Anna and Don & Zain for a while would give them an edge since Fox and MSNBC can't provide live news at night. Only CNN can. Either simulcast CNNI at night, or even run "Amanpour" on a tape delay every night after AC instead of his "second hour".

I remember a commercial for CNN a few years ago that touted their weekend news coverage. It went something like "news doesn't stop on the weekend, and nor do we"...

I wish someone would tell CNN that news doesn't stop at 11p eastern.

Sadly, the only way this could change would be if Fox started broadcasting overnight bulletins from their bureau in London. :|

Fox could always show Sky News UK

Just using the Thursday numbers as an example, there was roughly 2.8 - 3.0 million viewers watching the cable news channels at 11pm. Surely a live news cast then would pull in a huge chunk of that for CNN, not the 540,000 they grabbed. (The Thursday numbers are in the ratings thread, BTW).

...but that's something they've never done, and probably never will. FBN simulcasted Sky or Sky's business channel once or twice at night when the markets were falling through the sky last fall, but FNC never has simulcasted Sky as far as I know, and NewsCorp seems to like keeping Sky and Fox separate.

The problem with the 11pm hour is that they originally had AC on for a second hour, but I guess they didn't want to devote the effort into it, so they cut the show back to an hour, yet they still pretend it's a two hour show when it isn't at all. I think it's a bad idea to have a rerun of a live show back to back, especially at a time when most of the country is still awake and watching TV, and it's even worse to continue advertising it as a live, two hour show. At 11pm, it would be a better idea to run Amanpour on a tape delay, and then run Anna at Midnight, two hours of Don & Zain, then an hour of WBT.

I guess it would have been Sky, who did broadcast live from the City of London then. There is no UK Sky business channel, just one in Australia I think

It's not until you look at the schedule in that form when you realize that 8 hours of the 24 hour weekday is made up of Larry King and Anderson Cooper. That's a third of the day!

Yes, it is a little disappointing that 1/3 of the schedule is made up of LKL and AC360. If CNNUS doesn't want to simulcast a couple of hours of CNNI overnight, I wish they would do a live CNN Newsroom for a couple of hours overnight. I know it would never happen, but it's something that would be appreciated by night owls like myself.

And where have the overnight hourly news updates gone? I believe some years ago CNN US did have overnight anchors, but now they rely on CNNI's breaking news coverage if there's
a really big story outside of the US and if anything breaks in the US, looks like they are in big trouble anchor-wise (latest example - Times Square bomb). Anyway, there is a 7 hour gap each night during which "the worldwide leader in news" basically doesn't deliver news. And what hurts perhaps most is when AC promises to keep us "up to date throughout the night" on something and most of the time the next live update arrives with American Morning.

They really should do something with the newsless night problem.

Theres not been any big issues with CNNI covering overnight US news has there? Obviously a bit wierd when US news comes from London but haven't CNN/US got bigger problems

With that kind of schedule where a third of the 24-hour news cycle is peppered with reruns of Larry King Live and AC360, I can't help but laugh. And as long as Walton and Klein remain in charge, I won't expect any major changes to CNN/US's current programming, save for the impending vacancy to be created by Campbell Brown's departure.

What's even worse is that CNN Newsroom replay on Monday. How can you replay a news bulletin, I can't imagine that on CNNI or BBC, it's ridiculous.

They could have live news all night long with CNNI, that's a big advantage they could have against all other US news channels but they are not using it. Instead you get replays of shows that very little people watch in their original slots.

TSR on CNNI ;-) Though does show how stupid it is

Also the BBC (Domestic) News Channel does replay the first half of BBC World News America 30 minutes later. However they will cancel it if there is breaking news

Plus don't forget many stations replay US Broadcast news (CBS/ABC/NBC)

The lack of any regular live news show or update between 11pm and 6am eastern is a poor showing. CNN has the people and resources to go live 24 hours a day if they wanted to. I guess it's just money that is the deciding factor.
