Exclusive: Erin Burnett on Her Show’s Success, And Her Most Surprising Supporter

BurnettEAt CNN, most of the talk in recent months has been about layoffs, the leadership of Jeff Zucker, and, at times, Don Lemon. Shows have been canceled, high profile talent and executives have departed, and after months of turmoil some insiders admit they’re exhausted. A few even describe the mood as grim. So it’s worth mentioning that in one corner of CNN’s Columbus Circle home, where the “Erin Burnett OutFront” show team works, the mood is upbeat. “I love coming to work every day,” Burnett tells TVNewser.

Since her CNN debut three years ago, Burnett has steered clear of the chaos and quietly created something the network has in somewhat short supply–an hour of the nightly lineup–7pm–that is both stable and successful. Last week, “OutFront” had a rare one-day win in the demo over Fox News Channel’s “On the Record” with Greta Van Susteren. Year-to-date, “OutFront” has taken second place from MSNBC’s “Hardball” with Chris Matthews in the demo, and in November, the show boasted a +102% increase in the demo versus 2013, while “Hardball” fell -42%.

Burnett tells TVNewser “OutFront” has matured into a show she enjoys, and that makes the bosses happy. [Disclosure: I was part of the team that launched "Erin Burnett OutFront" in 2011]. “Creating a new show is not easy. You have to learn a lot of things the hard way. Over the past three years, we’ve built this show into an hour we are incredibly proud of…with a team that’s thick as thieves.”

TVNewser confirms Burnett recently signed a new contract that will keep her at CNN for several years–and further remove her from the uncertainty that surrounds other shows and stars at the network. But perhaps most surprisingly, she’s earned the respect and friendship of a very unlikely supporter–her biggest competitor.

CNN Picks Up Three Original Programs

LisaLingCNN has extended three Original Series for additional seasons. “This is Life with Lisa Ling,” “Somebody’s Gotta Do it with Mike Rowe and “Anthony Bourdain Parts Unknown” will each return next year.

“Parts Unknown” will enter its sixth season in 2015, while “This is Life” and “Somebody’s Gotta Do it” have officially survived their debut seasons.

Rowe was recently the guest of “Ask Me Anything” session on Reddit and discussed fitting in at CNN.

These three renewals follow CNN’s recent announcement of the new Original Series “High Profits,”  which will focus on a Colorado couple who hope to be the first ever “moguls of marijuana.”

CNN Hits New Ratings Low Monday Night

Cooper1110Monday’s 9pmET timeslot on CNN drew 181,000 total viewers, the lowest for the time period since at least Oct. 1, 1991, as far back as Nielsen electronic records go. Anderson Cooper anchored a second live hour of AC360 at 9pm. It was also the lowest rated hour of CNN’s entire day. Cooper finished fourth in the hour behind Megyn Kelly on Fox News, Rachel Maddow on MSNBC and Dr. Drew Pinsky on HLN, in both total viewers and the demo.

CNN’s 9pmET hour was the longtime home of Larry King and, until earlier this year, Piers Morgan. Most nights, CNN’s new non-fiction shows from Lisa Ling, Mike Rowe and John Walsh fill the timeslot. But Mondays have included a second live hour of Cooper.

Pot the Focus of New CNN Original Series

CNN is getting in the marijuana business… sort of.

The network today announced a new original series called “High Profits,” which will focus on a Colorado couple who hope to be the first ever “moguls of marijuana.”

“High Profits,” debuting in 2015, features Brian Rogers and Caitlin McGuire — apparently former Alaska news anchor / marijuana enthusiast Charlo Greene wasn’t available — who own the Breckenridge Cannabis Club.

The eight-part series, produced by Bat Bridge Entertainment, will examine the booming industry that is legalized marijuana. We’ve seen in the past the marijuana-related programming does very well with viewers. Here’s a preview:


“High Profits” joins “Anthony Bourdain Parts Unknown,” “This is Life with Lisa Ling,” “Somebody’s Gotta Do It with Mike Rowe,” and “The Hunt with John Walsh” as part of CNN’s acquired series programming.
