With the marathon 2008 Presidential election cycle, its not surprising that so many CNN correspondents and anchors are getting an opportunity to report from the CNN Election Express. Sunday, it will be T.J. Holmes.
On Sunday, Dec. 16, CNN anchor T.J. Holmes will join the Best Political Team on television in Des Moines, Iowa. Holmes will report from CNN Election Express on Religion on the campaign trail, Iowa politics and issues most important to the residents of the state. All reports will air on the weekend edition of CNN Newsroom Sunday, Dec. 16 from 7 a.m. to 12 p.m. (ET).

This week brought us the last televised debates prior to the Iowa caucuses. CNN aired the debate, but unlike other debates that we've seen this year, CNN wasn't the only network broadcasting the program.
Here are some numbers on how CNN did:
The Republican Debate
Held in Johnston, Iowa, the forum was viewed by almost 2 million cable news watchers from 2-3:25 p.m. on Dec. 12. Fox News led the way with nearly 1.04 million, more than doubling the total of CNN (619,000) and MSNBC (285,000), according to live, plus same-day data from Nielsen Media Research.
Among the news demo, Fox pulled in 286,000 adults 25 to 54, versus 185,000 and 103,000 for CNN and MSNBC, respectively.
The Democrat Debate
With the Dec. 13 debate from Johnson City, Iowa, CNN drew 977,000 viewers between 2 p.m.-3:35 p.m., edging Fox News’s 947,000, according to Nielsen Media Research data.
Among the 25-to-54 news demo, CNN scored with 344,000 of those viewers with the Democratic debate, versus 234,000 for FNC.
Do you see a slight hint of partisanship? Republicans watching FOX and Democrats watching CNN?
