Looks like a new show - I like this guy's writing, but the premise that the US needs a thirty minute show covering international topics is a joke. BRING BACK YWT. SIMULCAST CNNI instead of reruns of the zombie and faux journalist all night.

Anyway, I'll see if I like him taped as much as in print.

I watched that show and enjoyed it also (despite Tony Blair and Christiane Amanpour featuring heavily) that man Fareed is clearly an Outward Looker

I haven't had a chance to see it yet, but it looks good. It's refreshing to see pure world issues on CNN US again. I don't think we'll see Your World Today back on the schedule until after the election, if that.

Maybe Anampour isn't happy because she isn't on GPS anymore - at least I haven't seen her lately.

Yep. It's on right after whatever that tired old Blitzer show is on Sundays.
And now the response to Ms. Amanpour's fit about it.

This show may cover global stories but as long as Mr Zakaria still refers to America as "we" ie: "how do we need to approach the Arab governments differently?" this show will always be my chance to flip over to another channel when it starts.

I like to concept. They've just picked the wrong host. I know it would be too crazy to enlist someone from CNNI to host a program with an eye on the world, but still....... :roll:

Despite referring to America as "we", he has a very international perspective. I love his program, and watch it regularly.

2 page profile / interview of Fareed from The Observer.

Around the world, nostalgia for George W. Bush’s foreign diplomacy might be in short supply these days. But not long ago, Fareed Zakaria, the editor of Newsweek International and the host of CNN’s world affairs program GPS, listened with curiosity as one foreign head of state spoke wistfully of the bygone era of the 43rd president of the United States.

“President George Bush is a great person,” said Hamid Karzai, the president of Afghanistan. “I have a lot of respect for him.”

It was the morning of Thursday, Feb. 12, and Mr. Zakaria was sitting in a television studio in New York, conducting a taped interview via satellite with Mr. Karzai, who was sitting some 6,700 miles away in a regal-looking chair with purple upholstery and golden arms in the presidential palace in Kabul.

In recent months, Mr. Karzai, who came into power with U.S. backing during the Bush administration, has been struggling to regain his footing during the ongoing transition of power in Washington. President Bush understood him. But did President Obama? As of that Thursday morning, Mr. Obama had—still!—yet to reach out and speak to Mr. Karzai directly. Feelings were growing sensitive. Was it too much of a bother for the new guy to pick up the phone?

While awaiting official contact with Washington, Mr. Karzai decided to adopt a proactive approach and so he granted a rare on-camera interview to Mr. Zakaria at CNN.

Mr. Zakaria’s hour-long GPS (which “stands for” Global Public Square) kicked off in the summer of 2008. From the get-go, unlike most Sunday public affairs programs such as Meet the Press and This Week, GPS set out to lure political leaders and thinkers onto the show from outside the Beltway and outside America. Part of Mr. Zakaria’s booking pitch to world leaders has been to emphasize his reach: U.S. policy makers in Washington and New York as well as viewers in London and Moscow and New Delhi—even in Kabul.

I can't believe we get a show like this! It seems too intelligent to be on cable news. I'm glad it is tho! :D

Another favorite program of mine. Great international analysis of hot topic issues. Plus, they know how to use the lower thirds correctly.

The show has grown on me absolutely. I love the analysis each weekend and I also like the Fareed challenge on the website. Does anyone ever do that? I think it's a nice little way to test your global news knowledge.

I've always thought London's studio as something mediocre, but that first shot looks great!!
