After Extended Hiatus, ‘Crossfire’ Returns

Crossfire304x200After being off the air for over seven weeks, CNN’s “Crossfire” returns tonight.

The panel-debate show was last seen on CNN’s airwaves March 10, but has been sidelined since as the network aired near nonstop coverage of missing Malaysia Airlines Flight 370.

In its place, Wolf Blitzer hosted an extended full-hour “The Situation Room.”

The full hour with Blitzer, which predominantly covered the missing airliner for all of March and much of April, was the most-watched cable news show in the demo at 6pmET twice in March.

The show’s return comes during a heavy political news cycle: newly uncovered emails about the 2012 Benghazi consulate attacks are currently drawing coverage on cable and broadcast news.

And one of the show’s hosts–and former politician himself–Newt Gingrich, is ready to restart the debate.
