CNN’s ‘This Week at War’ to Become ‘This Day at War’

Posted by Raj on February 26, 2008

The continued popularity of CNN’s This Week at War prompted the Network to announce that the show would now be called This Day at War and air daily instead of weekly. A CNN programming director explained the decision by saying “Yes, with some shows once a week is enough, like ‘House Call with Dr. Sanjay Gupta’ for instance. There are only so many stories about blind men who walk fifteen hours to donate blood to homeless Katrina orphans that the American people can stomach, but with war, we really believe more is better. Maybe with some countries one hour a week is enough to cover what’s going on with their wars, but this is America. We barely scratch the surface in an hour.” The show, which deals with war, terrorism, homeland security and nuclear threats, also plans to add more interactive segments such as “Who Should be Next?” and a Top Ten plays of the day type offering where viewers vote on America’s best moves of the day in the global war on terror.
