After a viral video of CNN anchor Chris Cuomo lashing out at a man who confronted him in public went viral, did CNN put his show in “time out”?

  • Nope. Cuomo, who hosted CNN’s gun town hall Wednesday, Aug. 7, 2019, started a planned vacation on Aug. 8, before the incident took place.
  • Cuomo’s birthday, according to his own Twitter feed, was Aug. 9.
  • “Anderson Cooper 360” aired a special second hour in its place, rather than airing “Cuomo Prime Time” with a substitute host.
  • The show was, according to archived schedule pages and listings data, off the schedule the week of Aug. 12 before the incident Sunday night, and “AC360” will continue to air a second hour during Cuomo’s time off.
