Another week and another announcement from Jeff Zucker’s ratings-challenged CNN. As of tonight, Anderson Cooper 360 is being moved out of its 10 PM repeat slot for (Get To) The Point. The move follows the soft-rated launch of The Lead With Jake Tapper two weeks ago and the naming on March 28 of Kate Bolduan to co-host the upcoming CNN morning show this spring with Chris Cuomo. CNN says that the Donny Deutsch-led Point will run for only a week, but a source tells me the fate of the panel show could change quickly depending on viewer response. ESPN columnist Rick Reilly, author Margaret Hoover and ESPN NFL analyst Jason Taylor will also appear. The AC 360 encore, which has been repeating after Piers Morgan’s interview show since July 2011, will be shown at 11 PM for the next week, CNN says.
