What’s Hot/What’s Not: 01/27/13

Posted in Miscellaneous Subjects on January 27, 2013 by icn2

What’s Hot:

Hail to The Chief – Inauguration day was Monday (although officially it was Sunday) and the cable nets did what cable nets do under such circumstances, go overboard.

AC vs. AC – The National Enquirer entered the Ann Curry fray by reporting that Anderson Cooper’s nose was allegedly out of joint big time about the possibility that Curry would displace him.

Eric Bolling – Was named the new host of Cashin’ In on FNC’s Saturday Business-less Block…

Rachel Nichols – Nichols jumps to CNN (and Turner Sports) and will get a weekend sports show. ESPN and NBC Sports Network are both quaking in their boots at the prospect of CNN’s competition. Or not.

Sarah Palin splits with FNC – The signs were pointing to a split coming anyways at some point.

What’s Not:

Clash of the Rich Gassbags – Seeing a pissing match between two rich people live on CNBC might have had the business crowd going gaga but for the rest of us it seemed more like watching Piers Morgan throwing Twitter daggers at Lord Sugar. We don’t care!

Long plane flights with multiple layovers – More on that soon…
