The excellent ratings speak for themselves. 

 

I think Don would do well in the long run, he resonates with young viewers who do not want stiff news anchors, as seen by the positive reaction he got on social networks. 

 

I do not believe Don would have been suspended considering Zucker stopped by the show in the 10pm hour to say he was liking what he was seeing.

Nobody has ever accused Zucker of having any class.

But isn't the idea of the New Year's how to be totally different? They have Kathy Griffin for crying out loud. I'd drink too if I had to listen to her.

What about her kiss with that ski dude, the whole conversations and debates about "Hall Passes" (I get what they were talking about but what the hell is a hall pass?!), the Jonah (one of the brothers - don't care which!) comments.

 

It was all light hearted and not newsy at all. Just what New Year needs.

I zapped to Fox and they were talking to the police about terrorism. Doom.

In the US a hall pass allows you to be in the hall of your high school during classes (that is, if classes are 9:00 to 9:50, you can be in the hall at, say, 9:30.)  So it gives you permission to be somewhere you shouldn't be.

Personally, I don't watch any of it. But I think the "old" broadcast networks have it covered. Why news channels started this fluff is beyond my comprehension.
That said - and not having seen the reference to Hall Pass - it could also be in reference to a movie (Hall Pass) and it's premise:

Rick and Fred are best friends. They are both unhappy with their married lives and missing the old days when they were single. Their wives decide to give them a "Hall Pass": A week off from marriage during which they can have sex with other women.

No no no. They were talking about the slang meaning for 'hall pass' meaning a person your significant other allows you to hypothetically sleep with should you be given the opportunity. For example, my 'hall pass' may be Anderson Cooper because my significant other understands that given the opportunity I could not pass up sleeping with him. Kathy and Anderson were discussing these, with Kathy stating her 'hall pass' is David Gergen, CNN Senior Political Analyst. I believe Anderson jokingly said his was Donna Brazile?

I know that the legal issues are really complicated, but Don Lemon is totally out of his depth.  Anderson Cooper was tre.  ading water, at least, although it may have become even more complicated by the time Mr. Lemon stared.  had great fun watching it b/c I'm a recovering lawyer.  Not much opportunity to use my lawyer chops.
