CNN hastening return of ‘Crossfire’

CNN can’t wait to get “Crossfire” started again.

The network says the daily debate program will begin tonight.

CNN had originally planned for the show to make its debut Sept. 16, but it moved up the premiere because of President Barack Obama’s request that Congress vote on a military response against Syria over its alleged use of chemical weapons.

Newt Gingrich, S.E. Cupp, Stephanie Cutter and Van Jones are the new combatants on “Crossfire.”

The 30-minute show will air weekdays at 6:30 p.m.

‘Walking Dead’ spurs Web class

A California university and AMC think you can learn something from “The Walking Dead.”

The University of California, Irvine said Wednesday it will offer a free online course based on the network’s hit zombie series.

A team of UC Irvine professors will teach the eight-week course, which begins on Monday, Oct. 14, the day after the AMC drama has its season premiere.

AMC says fans of the show know it’s about more than zombies: it’s about survival, leadership and adapting to uncertain situations.

Topics addressed in the classroom will include the hierarchy of needs in a crisis, the physiology of stress and population modeling to predict a species’ survival.

‘Cat in the Hat’ moves to e-book
