Video: CNN Gives Viewers a Taste of What the New 'Crossfire' Will Be Like: 'It Sounded Like Cats in a Bag' Deadline

CNN aired a segment Tuesday that gave viewers a look at what they can expect on the revived version of the political debate show "Crossfire," and "It sounded like cats in a bag," Deadline.com reports.

The segment on "The Situation Room" featured Stephanie Cutter on the left and S.E. Cupp on the right -- two regulars who will be featured on "Crossfire."

"They 'discussed' voter fraud. It sounded like cats in a bag," Lisa de Moraes writes in the Deadline piece. "CNN’s most anticipated series debuts Monday, Sept. 16. at 6:30 p.m. ET -- now starring, most notably, former Speaker of the House and GOP presidential candidate Newt Gingrich."

De Moraes adds: "The political gabfest previously aired weeknights from 1982-2005, and is maybe best remembered these days for the time Jon Stewart appeared on the show in October 2004, ostensibly to promote his book 'America (The Book): A Citizen’s Guide To Democracy Inaction,' but mostly to tell the show’s talking heads that the program was 'hurting America. Here is what I wanted to tell you guys: Stop… You have a responsibility to the public discourse, and you fail miserably.;”
