What happens when sex fiend Eliot Spitzer and Washington Post columnist Kathleen Parker get together on CNN at 8 p.m.? They make out. No, they talk about politics 'n' stuff! Introducing your new CNN primetime debate show.
The duo will replace Campbell Brown and her show Campbell Brown, starting this fall. Former New York governor Spitzer and conservative columnist Parker, who recently won the Pulitzer in commentary for saying Barack Obama's blood is not American enough, and maybe some other things, "will co-host a spirited, nightly roundtable discussion program," according to a CNN release.
Spitzer, a legendary prosecutor and progressive governor, and Parker, an iconoclastic conservative commentator, will host a dynamic exchange of opinions and analyses - their own, and those of their guests and regular contributors - on the most important, compelling and amusing stories of the day.
"Other cable news channels force-feed viewers one narrow, predictable point of view; in contrast, CNN will be offering a lively roundup of all the best ideas - presented by two of the most intelligent and outspoken figures in the country," said Klein. "Eliot and Kathleen are beholden to no vested interest - in fact, quite the opposite: they are renowned for taking on the most powerful targets and most important causes."
They will be making out by the second episode.
