News anchor TJ Holmes, who spent five years on CNN’s weekend mornings before moving to BET’s Don’t Sleep in 2011, muses on the differences between working for a news network and entertainment network. “CNN could decide that they want to start a new show tomorrow, and it’ll get done. Because they have the capacity to do so, they can just put on what they want to put on,” he tells That’s Entertainment host Tammy Jones Gibbs. “At an entertainment network, even though they have all those hours to fill, it’s a matter of which advertisers have bought which slots on this show for this long and so on. It’s also been a challenge just building a show from the ground up. I had people asking me how high I needed my chair to be. Every little detail was my responsibility. But I learned so much more through that process.”
