New York-Taking a cue from Hollywood, Cable News Network this past weekend launched He Said/She Said, a weekly entertainment review program.
writer Peter Travers and Lisa Schwarzbaum, who writes for CNN sister outlet Entertainment Weekly, will host the weekly movie and theater review program. The half-hour show will run Saturdays at 10:30 a.m., replacing the cancelled Style.
The program shares the same name and format as He Said, She Said, a 1991 movie starring Kevin Bacon and Elizabeth Perkins. Travers and Schwarzbaum, whom a CNN spokeswoman said were not romantically involved, were regular contributors to Showbiz Today, which CNN also cut from its schedule.
CNNfn, which will be renamed CNN Money, also has new shows on the way. It will launch The Money Gang
on Feb. 26. The live show, which will run from 12:30 p.m. to 3 p.m., will focus on Wall Street news, and include viewer calls, online chats and electronic-mail messages. The network will also change the name of Biz Buzz
to The Biz.
