Cue the ‘Paw Patrol’ Theme

Posted on | March 24, 2023 | 1 Comment

Whenever we mention CNN on The Other Podcast, the Paw Patrol theme song is featured to mock the news network whose programming gets lower ratings than the Nickelodeon kiddie cartoon.

Has it been a whole month since I updated readers on the never-ending woes of the perpetual last-place cable network? Well, in case you missed it, CNN hit a 10-year low in its ratings in February, but the bad news didn’t stop there. The network’s former “rising star,” Don Lemon, continues flailing hopelessly on “CNN This Morning”:

CNN tapped two veteran executive producers on [March 13] to oversee Don Lemon’s ratings-challenged and controversy-marred “CNN This Morning.”
Longtime CNN producer Lauren Mensch and Chris Russell, who recently was the executive producer for NewsNation’s “On Balance with Leland Vittert,” will grab the reins from Eric Hall, according to the cable news network.
The moves come amid a flurry of bad publicity for Lemon.
The host infamously put his foot in his mouth last month by claiming GOP presidential candidate Nikki Haley was not “in her prime,” which not only upset co-anchors Poppy Harlow and Kaitlan Collins but ignited a firestorm of criticism that led to Lemon publicly apologizing and being sent to “formal training.”
His tone-deaf remark was ridiculed [March 12] by Michelle Yeoh in her acceptance speech after the 60-year-old Malaysian star won the Oscar for Best Actress.
“This is proof that dreams, dream big, and dreams do come true. And ladies, don’t let anybody tell you you’re ever past your prime,” said Yeoh in an apparent jab at Lemon.
Lemon also reportedly had an off-air blow-up with Collins and has made several on-air gaffes since the revamped show was launched last November.

When CNN needed someone to fill in on a primetime slot, they didn’t bother with Don Lemon, and instead picked Kaitlan Collins for the spot. Don’s basically a punch-line for a joke these days, and did I mention that he’s now on double-secret probation?

It’s just a matter of time before CNN finally figures out nobody wants to watch Don Lemon — morning, afternoon or night — and he gets fired.

Learn to code, baby.
