Charles Barkley and Gayle King’s CNN Show Flops … TV Execs May Fire THEM BOTH!!

Charles Barkley and Gayle King’s new CNN show is less than a week old, and already it’s looking like a complete disaster, Media Take Out has learned.

The show, King Charles, which has had a huge pre-launch buildup and unprecedented fanfare premiered last week, and the ratings were – as Charles would say …. “Turrrible.”

The show’s premiere got less than 500,000 viewers, the smallest audience of any new CNN show this year.

The National Enquirer spoke with a tv executive who told us that the two may be ready to get fired …. sooner rather than later.

“Gayle enjoys being breezy and conversational but she still considers herself a serious journalist,” the insider disclosed. “Meanwhile, Charles has a style he’s honed as a TV sports commentator — boastful, outrageous and always with an opinion, even if it isn’t factual and he knows little to nothing about the topic!”

So what’s the problem – Gayle is trying to make it a typical boring news show.

“CNN wants this show to be something everyone talks about, but Gayle doesn’t want it to be at the expense of her reputation,” the source adds.
