In Topic: State of America

I'm thinking there is nothing really unique about this show on CNNI. 

The format, the content and debates have now become standard across all shows! AC360 - Panels discussing Trump. Don Lemon - Panels discussing Trump. New Day - Panels discussing Trump. Wolf? Yup - Panels discussing Trump.

It would appear that everything on CNN in the US is now "What has Trump done lately?". And these shows are then simulcast on CNNI.

 

Oh CNN.... It's been a year. You elected him. Get over it!

  When I see the program , I ask  why is it still on the air?   Also I wonder why is Wolf aired Internationally if it's not doing anything but US politics  it drives me crazy being in the US, wonder how annoying it must be for the International audience.  And State of America is pretty much a CNN US show they happen to air on I instead. 

 

It is extremely annoying. CNNi has managed to replace so many former international news slots with US-only programs that I only catch the odd 15 minutes of news somewhere by chance because on weekdays when I'm home and have time to watch telly there are no international news on. I might catch 15 minutes of news here or there if I'm lucky, but mostly I avoid switching to CNNi because all I get is stuff like Wolf and SoA (or one of the ever-present Africa shows) that I just can't make myself watch.


In Topic: The World Right Now with Hala Gorani

No title would beat World News with Hala Gorani. Just one per day, it would pack a punch with the title and bring back something that has sadly been missing of late... News!

  Agree !  It would be a good name to bring back and maybe it make CNN International remember they are supposed to world news. 

 

Yes, I mean "Hala Gorani Tonight"? Is it already evening anywhere in the world during that time? Staying with TWRN branding with less emphasis on the Trump dossier is better.

 

Yes, it's evening in Europe. The show is on at 9pm German time, which is one reason why I never watch it. Better things to do.

Anchoring News Stream tonight, in for Kristie.

Thanks for the heads-up! I think that was the first time I've seen Andrew this year, with him having been gone for most of it. :-)

CNN get your f****en shit together. Disgusting I am in Europe and no CNN Today, first hour another screening of Amanpour, prob the 5th time in a day or is that the Asia Pac schedule!! I can put up with WS but now State of America.... honestly its 11pm/12am people are still awake if anything play your stupid replays at the 1am hour..... logic not f****en rocket science ...... fail fail fail

I hear you. CNN have managed to eliminate practically all general news editions at the times I would be able to watch them here in Germany. Instead I get an overdose of Mr. Quest when I get home (I don't mind him, but my interest in his shows is limited) and constant repeats of shows I don't want to watch even once like Amanpour and SoA. I've pretty much given up hope of catching actual news on CNN because there simply are none in decent time slots any longer.

It looks like Jon Mann'd weekend editions of Newsroom are replaced by simulcasts of Newsroom US. Been like that last 2 weekends.

So his retirement means I can go to bed at reasonable times on weekends without missing anything interesting. Unfortunately that's the only positive thing for me.
