  • Beginning next week, Chris Wallace’s CNN show will be moving from 7 pm on Sundays, a primetime spot, to a late-night spot on Fridays at 10 pm.
  • A CNN spokesman tried to downplay the move, saying it was made for a few nonsensical reasons, including new programming on Sundays and a desire to generate interest in the show by piggybacking off the streaming release which begins on Friday mornings.
  • “We’re thrilled that the CNN audience will now get to see these newsmaking interviews the same day that they are available on HBO Max,” a CNN spokesman said.
