CBS reconfigures morning show again
NEW YORK (AP) - November 15, 2011 (WPVI) -- CBS is trying again in the morning, replacing "The Early Show" with a sober-minded news program behind hosts Charlie Rose, Gayle King and Erica Hill.
The network said Tuesday the perennially third-rated morning show will change its name, but didn't announce a new one. The show premieres Jan. 9.
Public Broadcasting Service interviewer Rose and talk-show host King are both new to CBS mornings. Hill is a holdover from "The Early Show."
CBS has spent decades behind NBC's "Today" show and ABC's "Good Morning America" in the ratings. CBS hopes to pull viewers from people who believe those two shows are increasingly entertainment-driven and less serious about recounting the news of the day.
