Are viewers planning to boycott the CBS Early Show?
News that beloved anchor Harry Smith’s firing is hitting viewers the hardest and many fans are declaring their intention to stop watching the CBS Early Show forever. While the news of the decision to fire Harry Smith, Maggie Rodriguez and weatherman Dave Price broke at the end of November, it is their absence this week that is hitting viewers badly. It will remain to be seen if viewers flock away to CNN, Good Morning America, and the Today show on Monday morning when the new cast makes their debut.
