Following in the very successful footsteps of Fox News Channel’s Fox & Friends and MSNBC’s Morning Joe, CNN is creating a new show that takes on a few Fox characteristics.
According to The Wrap, the program will feature “dueling political ideologies and opinions.”
CNN reps. declined to comment.
This is a big move for the network — which claims to hold bipartisanship to a higher standard than Fox or MSNBC — but it could be just what it needs to boost ratings.
“Fox & Friends” attracts more than 1,108,000 viewers, which is up 8% from last year. CNN’s current morning show, “American Morning” draws only 364,000 total viewers, which is down 30% from last year, The Wrap reports.
