The CNN Quiz Show - Summary

The CNN Quiz Show continues the channel's departure from being a news-only television channel to something much broader. The show is hosted by Anderson Cooper and features CNN anchors as contestants. With questions such as, "What was Bill Clinton's full name at birth?" and "Who didn't sing at an inauguration swearing in ceremony?", it is clear that show's main intention is not providing enlightening political knowledge but to provide entertainment based on the reactions and interactions of the participants with some trivial tidbits as a sidebar.

Segments featured in the show include, "Picture This" where contestants have to describe wives of Presidents to their game partner so they can accurately guess who it is, and "Presidential Pets" where the contestants have to match the correct pet names with their respective Presidential owners. The contestants compete for a dollar amount that will then be donated to charity. The reception surrounding CNN's foray into the game show sphere has generated mixed reviews. Some wonder if CNN has begun to follow the footsteps of MTV, where they began as a channel that solely covered music and gradually progressed to the point where music is hardly ever shown.

Should you see The CNN Quiz Show being taped?
CNN Quiz Show
  Tapings of The CNN Quiz Show are held in the CNN studios at the Times Warner located in on Columbus Avenue in Manhattan. The show is hosted by Anderson Cooper and features some of CNN’s most recognizable faces as they square off in a jeopardy-style like game show. The contestants are paired into two person teams and answer presidential based trivia through a series of segments. With contestants such as Chris Cuomo, Don Lemon, Alisyn Camerota and Jake Tapper, CNN fans are sure to relish at the opportunity to see their favorite newscaster/journalists match wits in friendly competition. The contestants also add humor and competitive banter to engage the audience as viewers (and more specifically, the in-studio audience) can get a peek behind the curtain at some of the high profile CNN figures in a much more relaxed environment than that of a typical CNN news show. It is clear that CNN is trying to broaden the scope of viewers by diversifying their type programming. While some may abhor the idea of a game show on a news network, those who are more willing to diversify their news consumption may find some entertainment while viewing The CNN Quiz Show.

  Jeff Zucker - CNN President
In 2013, Jeff Zucker became the President of CNN. The move garnered mixed reviews as his track record at NBC included some unsuccessful projects. While some criticize CNN for their news coverage strategy, Zucker’s time at the company has resulted in ratings success. In 2014, CNN surpassed MSNBC in second place for news channels behind the perennial first place station, FOX News.
