CNN’s reboot of the political debate show “Crossfire” may be in trouble, according to a report by the Daily Caller.
Staffers from the show are being shifted over to “The Situation Room with Wolf Blitzer” and other shows, the report says. A publicist for CNN reportedly told the publication the show “is on extended hiatus.”
It wouldn’t be the first “extended hiatus” for the CNN show, which went off the air for eight years before the network revived it in 2013, with hosts Newt Gingrich, S.E. Cupp, Stephanie Cutter and Van Jones.
“But the show has never caught on. During the missing Malaysian airliner coverage, the program was routinely dropped for news for lengthy periods of time,” the piece notes.
