Christiane Amanpour

Gets Heave-Ho at ABC

Replaced by Stephanopoulos

12/13/2011 3:45 PM PST BY TMZ STAFF

Christiane Amanpour has gotten the boot from ABC, TMZ has learned.  She will be replaced as the host of the Sunday political show, "This Week," by George Stephanopoulos.

A well-placed source tells TMZ Christiane is going back to CNN as an international correspondent.

George will be doing double duty on "This Week" as well as "Good Morning America."

Here's what's interesting.  TMZ posted a story in September, saying there was talk at ABC about replacing George on GMA with the newsreader, Josh Elliot.  We said back then that the plan was for George to go back to "This Week" and that Josh would get the GMA anchor seat within a year.

Stay tuned ...

There's a problem here    

Oh man, George definitely has the intelligence and can absolutely fill the spot, but he lacks the cred with public opinion that Christiane has. Gonna be interesting.

Christiane Amanpour was out of place on THIS WEEK and she's a better fit at CNN as an International Correspondent. I think George is a great replacement. This works out for everybody.

Truth    

ARMANPOUR HAS ALWAYS HAD THE CREDIBILITY AS A FOREIGN CORRESPONDENT. SHE SUCKS AS A HOST, POINT BLANK PERIOD. BESIDES CNN HAS BEEN F*CKED OVER RECENT YEARS WITH ALL THE NAMES DISAPPEARING FOR NETWORK CUSHY-A$$ ANCHOR/REPORTING JOBS. PIERS MORGAN SINGLE HANDEDLY RUINED CNN'S PRIME TIME REP AND LOST THEM A TON OF DOUGH. ARMANPOUR WITH HER MIDDLE EAST BIN LADEN AL-QAEDA CONNECTIONS AND HINDU MILITANT ROGUE WARRIORS AMONGST OTHERS WILL BRING BACK THE ACCENTED CREDIBILITY. AT LEAST SHE UNDERSTANDS WTF THEY'RE SAYING. #TRUTH!!

Amanpour was a laughable and ineffectual anchor. ABC wants a good strong leftist liberal in that seat and she failed to produce satisfactorily. ABC merely got desperate and replaced her with good old steffieknopous (spelling intentional) Clinton's standby.

ABC wanted to be sure they had a good solid far left liberal in that seat for the election campaign next year.

Every ABC anchor for the last decades have been a worn out staff castoffs from the democrat Congress and Senate.

Nary a Republican in sight!

Whoever hired her in the first place should be given the heave-ho. George is gettin' kinda gray.

George is nothing but a stooge for the left. He doesn't wipe is butt without getting permission from Obama or the DNC first.
