HLN has cancelled Dr. Drew Pinsky.
This really shouldn’t be a surprise; the program sucked. But the timing is interesting.
Days after CNN’s Ashleigh Banfield announced on air she’s moving to HLN in the fall, HLN quietly confirmed Dr. Drew Pinsky’s program will end next month, though he will remain a contributor for CNN Worldwide.
“Dr. Drew and his team have delivered more than five years of creative shows, and I want to thank them for their hard work and distinctive programming,” CNN EVP Ken Jautz said in a statement confirming Pinsky’s last telecast will be September 22…
Last week, Banfield ended a broadcast of CNN’s Legal View telling viewers she is ending her run as host of the noon ET program, and would host a primetime show on HLN that will be a “unique brand of social and legal issues.”
Calling anything CNN/HLN airs “unique” is like saying Ted Turner is talkative.
There is absolutely nothing unique or surprising the network has done since the early 90s during the Gulf War when Peter Arnett and Bernard Shaw gave away allied coordinates from Hotel Baghdad.
Pinsky made headlines last week when he announced on his radio show he is “gravely concerned” about Democratic Presidential nominee Hillary Clinton’s health and the health care she is receiving. It played nicely into Donald Trump’s position that Clinton is not healthy enough to serve as POTUS.
That would be a little like calling CNN unique.
