The show will debut next week at 9pm ET with Bill Weir as a host. Not permanent but it will be temporary at 9, then shift to 10. I'm assuming at 9pm only next week, as Bill's test run.

The twitter account for CNN Tonight (@CNNTonight10pm) which is followed by John Berman and other CNNers (so it's more or less official that that is the show's account) originally said in the description that it will be hosted by Don Lemon and Bill Weir. Likely a Jonathan Wald project. He's really annoying me. (piers Morgan's old EP) He took an indirect jab at Jake Tapper on twitter. Now he's routing for the incapable Don and Bill just so he keeps a primetime EP gig

CNN Tonight's twitter now says hosted by rotating hosts

Don lemon may be a bighead, but Bill Weir is far from that: the Rob Ford reports and his few fill-ins shows he's capable of handling both serious stuff and dry humor/snark.

As for Wald leaving out Jake Tapper - let's say, as I see the format, The Lead is more suitable at 7p?

I dislike Bill Weir for his lack of anchoring skills, although he does great in-depth pieces and newsmagazine style programs. I don't like Jonathan Wald (CNN Tonight EP) because:

A. He's responsible for Piers Morgan
B. He's responsible for the Flight 370 Special Report airing every night
C. He used to seniority to ensure Tapper (and no one else for that matter) got a primetime slot to replace Piers

The logo of the show is IMO another Zucker-ism, in that it's a throwback to the 90s/2000s good old days (just like the ticker and James Earl Jones' "This is CNN" idents).

I prefer that opening too. The current one is nice, but it would be better suited during the daytime hours.

I don't know if it's just me (and I'm not exaggerating) these are single-handedly the worst graphics for a television news show I've ever seen

Looks interesting! I'm still not a fan of that angled projection screen. I'm going to guess this is temporary and they'll eventually get some other set... but who knows?

I think it's them trying to find a use for an old set, and that they are moving in a few years
