CNN Plans For New 'Crazy Like A Fox' Morning Show

CNN Schuringa

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.

Though CNN ranked No. 2 overall in February, their numbers plummeted in March sinking to fifth place and putting them behind the struggling CNBC.
