CNN's Cuomo: Live TV is Hard


CNN morning Anchor Chris Cuomo admits that being on the air for an extended period of time is a lot harder than he thought.

"I didn't give enough respect to the discipline and skill set of being on TV for long amounts of time," he said to the Hollywood Reporter. "I have always considered myself a coverage guy. I've covered lots of different things for lots of years, but only for small amounts of time. I didn't respect the idea of being on TV for an hour, two hours, three hours, five hours and what that demands. It's much more involved and difficult than I knew coming into it."

As for his Co-Anchor Kate Bolduan, she is still sticking up for the New Day couch, or at least the couch walk. 

The couch walk is a stupid segment is sponsored. The anchors walk to a couch while a commercial airs. The Daily Show's Jon Stewart rightfully criticized the segment and it has generated a great deal of attention, none of it positive.

"You want the show to get attention. Jon Stewart draws a lot of attention for various things," Bolduan said. "I love the ad, we have a lot of fun with it. If you can't have a little bit of fun with three hours of live TV from 6 to 9 in the morning, what are you doing?"

Oh you really want us to answer that? 

I don't think so.
