Is CNN the Worst Network on Television?

Is CNN the Worst Network on Television?

Here’s The Scoop

In a desperate attempt to boost their abysmal ratings, CNN has decided to air episodes of Real Time With Bill Maher starting later this month. Variety reports that new episodes of Real Time will air on CNN Saturdays at 8 pm, the day after they premiere on Max, starting Saturday, March 23.

Amy Entelis, executive vice president of talent, original programming, and creative development for CNN Worldwide, said in a statement, “The addition of Real Time With Bill Maher to CNN’s weekend primetime lineup marks the start of a commitment and investment into topical entertainment programming that we’re bringing to the weekends.”

It seems CNN is banking on Maher’s perspective and approach to news and information to draw in viewers.

This isn’t the first time CNN has aired programs from other networks, especially under the Warner Bros. Discovery umbrella. The series will continue streaming on Max and airing live. The new move will put an end to CNN airing segments of Overtime, a post-show special Maher films with his weekly guests.

This move comes after Real Time With Bill Maher was recently renewed for two additional seasons, meaning Bill Maher will stay on HBO through 2026.

Regarding the season renewal, Maher said, “Two more years in the dream job of a lifetime, on the network so many dream of being on – I think that’s what we call a no-brainer.”

As CNN continues to struggle with its credibility and viewership, one can’t help but wonder if this is just another desperate attempt to stay relevant in an ever-changing media landscape.

    The little guy Mancow isn’t going to like what comes out of the Maher show! Everyone in the main stream news media has to say the exact same thing!

    There isn’t any “news” programming anymore – it’s all just ratings-driven propaganda & puff-pieces, (including Fox). I read my news.

    I gave up on the Communist News Network and the Nihilist Broadcasting Corporation years ago during the Russia-Russia Hoax. They are a close tie for the most disgusting display of lack of professional journalistic ethics.
