*Attorneys Sunny Hostin and Mark Geragos, who served as occasional panelists on Anderson Cooper’s short-lived 10 p.m. roundtable show on CNN, will team for a new show on the cable channel in the same hour.
Titled “Making The Case” the half-hour show will premiere Monday, March 10 at 10:30 p.m. ET. It will reportedly be a weekly show set to run for five weeks, according to TV Newser.
Both Geragos and Hostin are familiar faces on CNN: they were on-air throughout last year’s George Zimmerman trial, often sparring against one another.
*Jon Stewart has a whole new meaning for “take me to the king.”
In a segment on his Comedy Central program “The Daily Show,” Stewart suggests CNN could solve its ratings woes overnight with the addition of one man in every news segment – Don King.
The boxing promoter was a recent guest on the news channel and, when time came to switch gears and begin a report on men getting facial-hair transplants, King refused to stop yapping. He continued to talk over the anchors, eventually ending with the chant, “CNN today! CNN today!”
*Well it’s a wrap for Piers Morgan.
The CNN talk show host is on his way to being a former CNN talk show host afer a 3 year stint at the news net.

*Fox News hosts Megyn Kelly and Gregg Jarrett targeted Don Lemon on Monday for expressing outrage that Michael Dunn was not convicted of first degree murder.
Lemon had said that he was “pissed off” that Dunn — who killed 17-year-old Jordan Davis when he shot at a group of teenagers in a car after an argument about loud music — was not convicted on charges of first degree murder.
Kelly and Jarrett did not mention Lemon by name on Monday, but referred to Jarrett’s testy Twitter exchange with Lemon over the issue. As previously reported, Jarrett tweeted that Lemon lacked “some measure of objectivity as an anchor” and criticized the CNN host for taking the verdict “personally,” while Lemon tweeted back, “Mind ur business, old man.”
