Home Television Jeff Zucker Kicks Ass, Makes Big Changes at CNN: Cuomo and Burnett...

Jeff Zucker is cleaning house so fast today at CNN that heads are spinning, rolling, and screaming. Chris Cuomo is coming over from ABC’s “20/20″ to co-host the new morning show with Erin Burnett. CNN managing editor Mark Whitaker is out. So are James Carville and Mary Matalin, who’ve been with CNN forever. There’s talk of moving Anderson Cooper, maybe to midday, since his evening ratings are not great. Also, if you’ve noticed, James Earl Jones is back announcing “This is CNN.” No one knows where Soledad O’Brien goes, but she’s great so I hope there’s something for her. The Cuomo-Burnett pairing is very good. And no one knows morning better than former “Today” show whiz Zucker. More changes coming…
