Eye to Eye With Connie Chung Trivia

    

The time slot for Eye to Eye With Connie Chung was changed four times during its two year run from June of 1993 until the summer of 1995. When the show premiered, it aired in the 9:00 to 10:00PM slot on Thursday nights. It had some pretty strong competition for an audience from "Matlock" on ABC, "In Living Color" and "Herman's Head" on FOX, and "Seinfeld" and "Frasier" on NBC!

Their was a considerable scandal in 1995 when Connie interviewed Kathleen Gingrich who was the mother of the Speaker of the House of Representatives, Newt Gingrich. Connie asked her what her son thought of Hillary Clinton who was at the opposite end of the political spectrum from him. Kathleen was visibly bothered by the question and when it looked like she was not going to answer, Connie Chung leaned over and told Kathleen that she should answer with a whisper and her answer would be "just between you and I". The sound technician cranked up the sensitivity of Kathleen's microphone and viewers heard her say, "He thinks she's a bitch!" Newt Gingrich loudly and vigorously complained that Connie Chung took advantage of his mother who was not "savvy" to investigative reporting. The story hit the national news programs and coverage was very negative to Connie and CBS.

In May of 1995, Connie Chung was fired as co-anchor on the CBS Evening News and consequently decided to leave CBS, including her hosting job on "Eye to Eye With Connie Chung" so the title was changed simply to "Eye to Eye".
