Attempts To Replicate “The Daily Show” Continue

Will this formula work? We feel like we’ve seen this movie before, but who knows….We’ll be live-blogging it for sure to find out.

And, really, for Amy Holmes’ sake, we’re just happy that she’s getting more face time on TV. She’s not on nearly enough. (Oh wait…)

From the release:

    Coming off a year of continued ratings growth for its “news and views” programming strategy, Headline News will add Not Just Another Cable News Show to its weekend lineup, it was announced today by Ken Jautz, executive vice president of CNN Worldwide. The series will take a lighthearted look back at famous — and infamous — stories that made news. The series will premiere on Saturday, April 5, at 7 p.m. and will feature some of the most unforgettable political blunders of our time. Future episodes will highlight bad celebrity behavior, stupid criminals and unusual pop culture fads.

    Not Just Another Cable News Show will air each Saturday and Sunday at 7 p.m., with re-airs at 9 p.m. and midnight. …

    The half-hour program will feature comedians, pundits and other “talking heads” offering their take on memorable video clips. The premiere episode includes editor Ana Marie Cox, Los Angeles Times columnist Joel Stein, Republican strategist Amy Holmes, Huffington Post media editor Rachel Sklar and comedian Hugh Fink. Not Just Another Cable News Show will be executive-produced by Conway Cliff.
