...most of whom don't have a slot, though, unfortunately. Max, Monita, Adrian, Sasha, Paula, Becky, and Fionnuala.

True. If I were the boss, I would put Monita and Adrian for the 3rd and 4th hour of CNNtoday; scrapping the World News and World Sport inbetween, send Max as a correspondent for European Politics, which has been vacant after Robin Oakley left. Becky gets the new show. Sasha could be the lead substitute anchor for all of the shows, and i would fire Finn (sorry guys). Instead of her show, a new one from HK.

I think you hit the nail on the head with what would be a good situation. I would also hire a new male anchor for CNN Today HK, why split the two shows, it doesn't make sense. Or get Andrew to anchor with Krisite and get Manisha to do WBT. Get Anna to sub. Get London an hour earlier like it used to be.

CNN Today = breakfast show. Zain and Don did it very well today, I must say. CNN Today = lunchtime show, which it would be if it is anchored at 12 noon local time from HK.

I also do think that there is a vacuum in the European schedule after Today with Zain and Don, where things don't seem too right.

Back to the topic of Don though. I think he is a fresh change, and may actually be good from Max's dry humour. I just am not used to it yet, though I'm sure they will work out well. They just need Jen with the weather now.

The impression of Don being a dull lightweight remains, especially when he keeps stealing Zain's lines, twice in two minutes this morning.

To all @zainverjee fans - I didn't steal her lines today, the director just kept on cutting her camera to air. I guess he's a fan too!

Don reported earlier live from a London protest. The video looked stretched, like it was 16:9 but not cropped properly.

Did anyone watch that report on that new movie with Bruno the gay character??? He was asked by a cnn reporter to give fashion tips to Don and Zain and he said some funny stuff. It will be shown today a lot I'm sure.

What did Zain and Don say after the report this morning???

I just saw this on YWT. I can't remember what he said about Don and Zain, but I thought it was funny. :)

He made fun of his red tie and suggested he's gay too and about Zain he suggested she should show off her breasts more. :oops:

Don had to also explain to Zain that the club Fridge in Brixton was a gay club
