Why CNN Is Bringing Back 'Crossfire' Ahead of Schedule AP
CNN has rescheduled the return of its debate show "Crossfire," the Associated Press reports. The show will now return to the cable news channel Monday, Sept. 9, instead of the following Monday.
The network cited the looming congressional vote on a U.S. military response against Syria as the reason it can't wait to get the show launched.
The program will feature Newt Gingrich, S.E. Cupp, Stephanie Cutter and Van Jones discussing political issues in a half-hour format. It will air at 6:30 p.m. weekdays, the piece notes.
"The show aired for many years on CNN before being stopped in 2005 after it was criticized by 'The Daily Show' host Jon Stewart," the report notes. "But new CNN boss Jeff Zucker has advocated bringing it back."
