ATLANTA–CNN officials announced that they will be carrying the popular news show This Week At War through the 2014 season. “We’re confident that we’ll have at least eight full seasons worth of material for this property,” said CNN President Jonathan Klein during the dedication of the new eleven-story TWAW news headquarters in Kuwait City. “And believe me, we’re going to be going in some surprising new directions. A premise like this can go on for a generation.” In addition to TWAW‘s extended renewal, CNN is retooling existing news shows to give them a more martial focus, most notably The Situation and War Room, and Lou Dobbs Tonight in the Middle of a Pitched Street Battle Between Sunni and Shiite Extremists.
