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 ...

I knew she wasn't going to last and George wasn't going to be happy with GMA. So, which ABC executives get fired for stupidly bringing in Amanpour?

Pop goes the weasel! HimandHalleyBarry like to go AWOL
from the scene of car wrecks they cause.
George got in a wreck and the little weasel ran from the
scene of his crime
Every time I see his weasel face on the tube, I think of
that! I wouldn'*****ch him on tv if you PAID me!

She does a worst job at hiding her prejudices than a klan member in a white robe. She thinks Fidel Castro is great, hates Israelis for being so greedy with forcing those poor muslims to only own 99% of the middle east instead of 100% like they want, and does not even try to hide her disgust for the US.

CA and JFK JR shared a house with a couple other people back when they were young. The middle eastern heat, elements and diet are very hard on the skin/hair. I assume that is why she looks so much older than she really is

I don'*****ch either of them because they are both boring, as is TV news. The commentary is just bickering or posturing, no real journalism or investigation or good debates. It is a boring waste of time. She actaully made me mad with her attitudes. She seems like an undercover jihad agent.

Would not be a smart move to dumb down GMA with that Josh person, a month before Charlie Rose brings distinction to the Early Show. There'll be a battle for N E W S and GMA needs George to stay in the game.

She's a shame to her Christian roots! Her family must be so ashamed of her. I can't imagine what a kitten James Rubin must be to marry this Iranian witch. Glad I don't have to see her mug anymore.
