Piers Morgan hasn't even officially signed off and the battle is raging as to who will replace him.
Page Six writes that Bill Weir, Don Lemon and Jake Tapper are in a “death match” for it, with one TV insider saying, “It’s like ‘The Hunger Games’ at CNN, a fight to the death between Weir, Lemon and Tapper for the slot.”
The source added that while Weir has posted promising ratings with his coverage of missing Malaysia Airlines Flight 370 while guest hosting in the past week, “he has produced a number of pilots, which haven’t been picked up.”
To add fuel to the fire, Weir and Tapper are old ABC rivals, “and are fiercely competitive, to the point of strong hostility.”
There’s currently no guarantee that any of this trio will land the slot, and CNN reps have repeatedly refused to comment.
Let the games begin.
