Conservative commentator Kathleen Parker is about to be dumped from CNN's low-rated Parker Spitzer , according to the New York Post, which cited an unnamed insider. The source told the newspaper that Parker was being removed from the show "due to a lack of chemistry" with Spitzer and "dismal ratings." The Post also took note of the fact that a Billboard promoting the show was removed from Times Square on Monday and is due to be replaced with one touting Piers Morgan's new show, which is set to debut next week, with Oprah Winfrey, Howard Stern, and George Clooney scheduled to appear during the first week. Meanwhile, the Post said, Parker Spitzer, which had previously been taped, has begun airing live. CNN, it noted, had declined to discuss Parker's future.
