It’s baa-aaaack. On CNN’s “Crossfire”.

CNN’s formerly famous show, “Crossfire” (or “I’m gonna kick your ass”, as Jon Stewart called it), is to be relaunched on September 16th this year.

Reports Politico:

CNN has announced that its highly anticipated debate show “Crossfire” will relaunch on Sept. 16 at 6:30 p.m.

“Crossfire… will resemble the show’s original format with passionate conversation and focus on topical events of the day,” the network announced in a press release. “The daily, 30-minute program will feature two hosts and guests each night, discussing a range of issues from all sides of the political and cultural spectrum. In addition to the weekday show, the Crossfire co-hosts will appear across the network’s programming.”

So continues the revamp of CNN as it seeks to find its own niche between the partisan rivalries of MSNBC and Fox News.

Unfortunately, the hosts of the show include Newt Gingrich (the philandering Pilsbury doughboy) and a slew of ex-Obama administration alumni. Based on the line-up, I don’t think we can expect very much.

What was it Jon Stewart once said?


Ah yes, that’s it.

“Stop. Stop stop stop. Stop hurting America.”
