DEMOTION: CNN Cuts Don Lemon From Primetime, Moves Him To Morning Show

More changes are taking place at CNN. Don Lemon has been taken out of primetime and will now co-host a morning show on the network.

This is th latest big change since the departures of Brian Stelter and John Harwood.

Don Lemon’s primetime show had awful ratings so it’s not that surprising that they cut it.

The New York Post reports:

CNN axes Don Lemon from primetime, moves him to morning show in anchor shakeup

Ratings-challenged CNN will reshuffle the deck chairs on the slowly sinking network, pushing out left-leaning primetime host Don Lemon from his plum solo slot to a newly created morning team, boss Chris Licht announced Thursday.

Lemon will join Kaitlan Collins and Poppy Harlow to replace current “New Day” hosts John Berman and Brianna Keilar.

Licht’s long-anticipated move to drop Lemon from prime time comes after new corporate overlord Warner Bros. Discovery pledged to shift CNN away from opinion-based shows to more centrist reporting of the news. Last month, the network canned Brian Stelter, the outspoken host of the now-canceled “Reliable Sources.”

Lemon — who often espoused his liberal opinions on his 10 p.m. show “Don Lemon Tonight” — helmed the lowest-ranked program in primetime in August, averaging 660,000 viewers to finish a distant third to Fox and MSNBC.
