CNN LOSES MORE VIEWERS DURING 8:00 P.M. HOUR

What does the new hour-long show that replaced CNN’s Parker Spitzer look like now that Parker is gone? Well, as it turns out, there haven’t been a lot of people curious enough to find out. Indeed, instead of the usual “curiosity boost” for a new show, ratings have fallen for In the Arena, which has put Elliot Spitzer in the driver’s seat with guest contributors riding along. (Currently they are conservative commentators E.D. Hill and Will Cain.) The show launched Monday with a fourth-place (among cable news shows) 124,000 viewers in the key 25-54 demo. By Wednesday the number had declined to 114,000. By contrast, Bill O’Reilly attracted 895,000 in the demo on Fox News.
