Weekdays 7:00 on CBS
16 Seasons, 1960 Episodes

Ended

CBS This Morning made its debut in November 30, 1987, with hosts Harry Smith, former GMA news anchor Kathleen Sullivan, and Morning Program holdover Mark McEwen. Sullivan would be replaced by Paula Zahn on February 26, 1990. Beginning October 26, 1991, in an effort to stop affiliates from dropping the program, CBS allowed more participation from local stations. (Most affiliates more
... have their own early morning newscast, which precedes the national news.) Despite a far more successful pairing in Smith, Zahn, and McEwen, CBS This Morning remained stubbornly in third place, and a brand new set and live format introduced in October of 1995 proved less helpful. In August of 1996, the show was revamped again, as simply This Morning. McEwen again remained on the show replacing Smith as co-anchor in 1996, sharing the job with Jane Robelot, who replaced Zahn, and anchor Jose Diaz-Balart (succeeded by Cynthia Bowers and later Thalia Assuras, both anchors of the Morning News). Also, a new system was created where many of the local stations air their own newscast from 7 to 8 AM, with inserts from the national broadcast. Then from 8 to 9 AM, affiliates air the second-half of the national broadcast uninterrupted. Ratings went up slightly, and at one point the show even moved ahead of Good Morning America in 1998. But it was also a brief ratings success, and This Morning became the predecessor to The Early Show. Still searching for a larger audience, CBS canceled The Early Show and revived CBS This Morning in 2012.

Snoop Dogg Insists He 'Didn't Threaten' Gayle King After Criticism Over Ominous Video

Snoop Dogg, who caught heat over the weekend for seeming to have threatened Gayle King in an Instagram video post, is now insisting the message was misinterpreted, saying, “I don’t want no harm to come to her, and I didn’t threaten her. All I did was say, ‘Check it out. You out of pocket for what you doing, and we watching you.'” In his previous video, which had the rapper-actor criticizing Kin... more

Rough Morning: How TV's A.M. News Shows Are Grappling With Trump and Technology

Robin Roberts needs to rely on more than just her journalism training to survive on “Good Morning America.” ABC News keeps throwing new program configurations at her, so much so that Roberts says she draws upon her childhood experience, when her father had to move from job to job in the Air Force, to keep rolling with them. “I had to make new friends every three years,” she says. On camera at “GMA,” she’s done much the same. When she joined the s... more
