UPDATE Don Lemon Changing the Name of His Show, Causes an Uproar But He’s Not Going Anywhere



Is it the end of “CNN Tonight with Don Lemon”?

Seems so. Don Lemon surprised his audience tonight by signing off saying as much. It was a quick goodbye, and it seemed like Lemon was leaving CNN.

I guess a lot of people thought so. Lemon immediately posted a video to Twitter insisting he’s not leaving the news network, and that everyone had to tune in Monday at 10pm to see what’s going on.

Is the show getting a new title? A new format? Will it feature songs? Lemon produced a wonderful tribute to Marvin Gaye’s 1971 album classic “What’s Going On?”

So what is going on? I guess we’ll have to wait and find out!
