'Early Show' Responds to Upset Viewers on Facebook

The feedback about the new anchor team on CBS’ “The Early Show” is filling up on the show’s Facebook page. Someone from the CBS morning news program posted this on the show’s page around 12:30pm today:

We appreciate that some of you in this forum miss the previous line-up. They are moving on to other challenges, and the new team is working hard to put on a great program every day. Thank you for following “The Early Show” on Facebook.

It didn’t take long for fans to add commentary — 99 at last count, some supporting the new anchors, but most writing things like, ” I have moved on to GMA now” and “I miss the old team with such great camaraderie..”

Earlier this month, Chris Wragge, Erica Hill, Marisol Castro and Jeff Glor replaced Harry Smith, Maggie Rodriguez and Dave Price. Fans have also set up a ‘Save The Current Early Show Team’ Facebook page, which boasts 1,400 likes and continues to update. By contrast, the show’s main Facebook page has more than 37,000 likes.
