CNN goes full CHAPLINSKY! in search of ratings, replaces Anderson Cooper with Chris Cuomo

LOL.

Ratings-challenged CNN is looking for some of that early-morning CHAPLINSKY! magic, reportedly naming “New Day” host Chris Cuomo as the network’s new face at 9:00 p.m.

This means Anderson Cooper loses an hour of his show:

Which to CNN’s Chris Cillizza is “awesome news” for some reason:

Cuomo couldn’t beat Fox News in the morning, but hey … 9:00 p.m. will be totally different:

And let’s not even get into CNN going with just another white dude:

He’s not black.

He’s not female.

He’s not many things.

This should be fun. https://t.co/OsTUloAqnt

CNN is replacing Cuomo with a white dude in the morning, too:
