This Weekend's Programming 4/7/12

SATURDAY, April 7, 2012

SANJAY GUPTA, MD – Saturday and Sunday 7:30AM – 8:00AM
For decades, doctors have relied on Body Mass Index – or BMI, a ratio of height to weight – to categorize people as overweight and obese. But a new study suggests the obesity crisis in America may be even worse than we thought. Sanjay takes a 250-pound 12-year-old boy to the hospital to show him exactly what all the extra weight is doing to his body. Also, since her 1996 Olympic debut at the age of 14, swimmer Amanda Beard has won seven Olympic medals, and is now training to land a spot in her fifth Olympics this summer in London. But throughout her career, Amanda has struggled with a negative body image and self-destructive behavior. She opens up about an adolescence filled with abuse, eating disorders and even “cutting.”

AN AC360° SPECIAL: KIDS ON RACE – THE HIDDEN PICTURE – Airs Sunday 8:00PM – 9:00PM and 11:00PM
CNN anchors Anderson Cooper and Soledad O’Brien share the findings of a year-long investigative study into how children interpret discrimination and race relations in an Anderson Cooper 360° special report. With insights from renowned child psychologist, Melanie Killen, PhD, Cooper and O’Brien explore the interplay between a child’s environment and their perceptions of race, and whether such opinions can change over time.

Could Betty be returning to CNN ? She is leaving
CBS. I can't see her returning to CNN unless it is
a prime time gig. It would be great if they could
Erica Hill back as well. Would love to see Betty,
Erica & Isha together. The Erin Burnett debacle
needs to end now.

Out Front can't continue at 7 for CNN. I really miss
TJ & Betty. Don't think CBS would let Erica Hill go.

It just might be Betty Nguyen, Isha Sesay and
Ashleigh Banfield Would CNN be willing to try
a women's show at 7 PM. The right music and
content can have a huge impact. Erin Burnett's
numbers are getting dangerously low. Less than
100,000 in the demo is a bad sign. I say this
because Ashleigh Banfield anchored 360 last
night. 360 needs to bring back the music too.
360 is boring without the cool music. I would
play a game with friends to see if we could
guess all of the songs. Floods was a great
theme song. It is just not the same 360. Who
killed the music. Go for Strombo and the
Vanguard Team from Current too. Vanguard
has some amazing original docs. Hire Adam
Yamaguci, Marizna Van Zeller and Christof
Putzel away from Current. Can't hurt to add
Conor Knighton, Jason SIlva and Max Lugavere.
Brett Erlich is great at political satire and boy
TSR could use some. His campaign updates
are hilarious. CNN i in dire need of new and
fresh talent. All of these people can help give
CNN original content and interesting stories.

I wonder why CNN ended its 4AM weekday live broadcast of World Business Today from CNN International and replaced it with an AC360° re-run.

I know this is a random comment but I loved how at 4:59AM I would see Wolf Blitzer (who filled in for Anderson this past week) say in a pre-recorded clip, "thanks for watching. Early Start begins right now".

I'm sure you have all guessed that I'm an early bird.

Just another example how out of touch CNN management is with the viewers. They remove the last CNN International program and replace it with another repeat of AC360. Very few people are watching the 360 and they air it again. This is why CNN has become such a joke in the media world.
They also need to take that Peabody Award for the Arab Spring coverage and give it to the CNN International journalist, they are the ones that earned it.

And it looks like they have replaced Anderson Cooper with the new face of CNN, Will Cain.

10:55AM: You are absolutely correct in your perceptive observation.
It was the journalists who worked for CNNi that deserve the Peabody Awards, who did most of the reporting on the Arab Spring.
But No, we have to praise Anderson Cooper for the upteenth time and frankly I'm tired of him.
He has become old and tedious right before our eyes and he hasn't done any foreign reporting since last year.

Yep, I agree with all above - CNNI deserves that Peabody and they should get the shout out for it.
