CNN's new comedy show is completely different from The Daily Show...NOT!

Having been accused by Republicans for years of not being balanced and presenting fake news, CNN will finally own up to it with their newest show, Not Just Another Cable News Show.

According to USA Today, Not Just Another Cable News Show will premiere April 5, and it'll be, " entertaining way to recall some of the more memorable moments captured on video," said Ken Jautz, executive vice president at CNN Worldwide.

That's right, CNN, having watched programs like The Daily Show and The Colbert Report skyrocket in popularity among younger views, decided that the best course for journalism was to take Washington editor and Wonkette founder Ana Marie Cox and noted Huffington Post contributor Rachel Sklar, and have them re-hash the first half hour of The Daily Show. Isn't this is the TV equivalent of having puppies on the front page of your newspaper?

I just hope it's as funny as CNN's only other successful comedy show, Nancy Grace.
