TJ Holmes on ‘Don’t Sleep’: I finally made it

"TJ Holmes Don't Sleep"
Former CNN news anchor TJ Holmes tweeted that he finally made it after seeing his likeness on a Times square New York Billboard promoting his new late night talk show “Don’t Sleep” on BET.

Hosted by Holmes, the late night news-satire series will focus on an array of current events impacting the African-American community, featuring correspondents to assist in projecting the show’s unique blend of social commentary and humor.

Don’t Sleep! also marks Holmes’ first show since exiting CNN in December 2011. The Arkansas native’s reason for leaving the 24 hour news network, where he served as the morning weekend anchor for five years, was based on him seizing BET’s offer to help bolster their original news programming.

I watched the premiere show and it was very informative, inspiring and entertaining. Check out an episode below:
