As he made the rounds in New York earlier this week, Gov. Rod Blagojevich stopped in at CNN to chat with D.L. Hughley. Despite his ouster from office yesterday, the interview will still happen on Hughley’s show tomorrow night. Insiders tell us producers will make clear the interview took place before Blago’s impeachment and removal from office.
As for the interview, Hughley sipped from his “I Love Blagojevich” coffee cup while Blago drank form his “Me Too” mug. Hughley then offered Blago a job:
Hughley: We’re not gonna give up either, and if I don’t work out there I promise you can always come work with me. You can be my correspondent…
Blagojevich: I appreciate it – I’ll do it for free, man, you’re a special guy.
Earlier this week, CNN also released the ratings for D.L. Hughley Breaks News. For the month of January, the 10pmET telecast came in first in A25-54 demo viewers, and second in Total Viewers.

Illinois Gov. Rod Blagojevich is being impeached, and not, as it may have seemed this week, promoting a book or movie. At least not yet. Today, he’s actually in the Illinois
House of Representatives Senate to make his case, and the cablers are giving it wall-to-wall coverage. This may go for awhile. We think the HLN chyron sums it up: “Blagojevich is not testifying, is not under oath, will not have to answer questions.” We’ll be twittering &mash; enjoy!
If Gov. Rod Blagojevich was the big “get,” early this week, former Evangelical leader Ted Haggard is the big end-of-week get. As we reported yesterday, he’ll be on Good Morning America and Larry King Live tomorrow and CBS’ The Early Show on Friday.
But now you won’t have to wait until tomorrow. ABC News’ Dan Harris sits down with Haggard this afternoon, and it airs tonight on World News and Nightline. Also interviewed are his wife, Gayle, and daughter, Christy.
Tomorrow morning Haggard and his wife will be live on Good Morning America.
