CNN Debuts New Daytime Lineup

Starting today, CNN’s dayside may look a little different. Back in January, they announced changes to their lineup, and now we get to see exactly what that looks like. Here are the major changes:

1) A new show, “@THISHOUR,” features “Early Start”‘s John Berman and Michaela Pereira from “New Day” at the 11:00 AM hour.

2) Ashleigh Banfield‘s “Legal View” has moved to 12:00 PM.

3) Wolf Blitzer‘s 1:00 PM show “Newsroom with Wolf Biltzer” has been re-branded as simply “Wolf,” after Blitzer was bitten by a wolf and now has amazingly heightened senses.*

So in short, this is the day time lineup from now on:

9 – 11 a.m.                  Carol Costello
11 a.m. – 12 p.m.        John Berman and Michaela Pereira
12 – 1 p.m.                  Ashleigh Banfield
1 – 2 p.m.                    Wolf Blitzer
2 – 4 p.m.                    Brooke Baldwin

*Just kidding, this is actually the plot to Wolf, the movie starring Jack Nicholson. “Wolf,” the TV show, will continue to focus on politics, breaking news and international news, and will be hosted by a completely human (or at least non-lycan) Wolf Blitzer.
