Connie Chung Tonight was a television newsmagazine with Connie Chung that aired from 2002 to 2003 on CNN/US. The show aired from 8 to 9 p.m. EST weeknights, at first live, then previously taped in a move the network hoped would improve the program's flow.
Although it achieved moderate audience ratings, her show was suspended with the start of the 2003 Iraq War, Chung's role shifting to reading news headlines. When CNN generally resumed regular programming, they did not bring Connie Chung Tonight back to air. The program was cancelled and Chung did not return to air on the network, despite a considerable period of time left on her employment contract.
In an interview, CNN founder Ted Turner once called the series "just awful."
